Honda S2000 differential whine when accelerating

Great, ...

... my CTR can go back to the workshop. After switching to the new WR (Conti TS 850), the car pulls so brutally to the left when accelerating that the fun really stops at 100 km / h. With my SR you can easily drive the car up to 160 km / h with three fingers on the steering wheel, everything is very stable, both when accelerating, braking and when pushing. I suspect something was messed up there. I checked the tire pressure, it's ok. I don't suspect imbalance in the WR, because it only occurs when accelerating. I guess the Dussels somehow blocked the track. If I'm not mistaken, pulling or accelerating indicates bad forward, right?

I'll report when I know something.

greetings

Guilty!

Since we all know how the threads derail from a certain point on and how they have to be emptied of garbage afterwards, I decided to take this preventive action.

Unfortunately I lost a post about it. For the part -> Sorry! :(

How does the car behave if you let it roll in a straight line and then (carefully) let go of the steering wheel?

If it pulls in any direction, then the toe / camber may be misaligned.

Is the direction of rotation of the tires correct?

Perhaps you fitted the tire the wrong way round? You can check it yourself.

Adjusting the track with just one tire change is difficult. You'd have to hit your tie rod with a hammer. : D

As I said, problems only when accelerating.

Braking, pushing, disengaged rolling, everything is OK.

Tires are correctly mounted (direction of rotation) and correct and even air pressure. I'm really curious what that can be. Maybe there's a tire up your ass. But then the problem should be permanent and not just when accelerating.

And no joke, if you do not hold the steering wheel well when accelerating from 100km / h (even in sixth gear), it would go into botany. As soon as you take off the gas and then don't pay attention, the counter-impulse comes and the car is then quite unstable. Really funny.

You don't have abnormal noises?

Possibly drive shaft or differential ?!

Could also be the wishbones or tie rods.

Possibly shock absorbers ?!

I'm curious what it is myself, I've never had anything like it! : rolleyes:

No noise or other problems. It's just weird that it just happened with the change to the new WR!

I will report.

No, not yet. I'm on vacation right now and the car is parked at the friendly, so they have enough time to look carefully. Report when I get it back.

So, go back and I can report the following.

With the track or other chassis geometry, everything was and is fine. The master was downright shocked when he drove the car. Then the tires were mounted on a set of completely different rims - everything was OK! Then back on my rims but not in the same tire-rim combination - everything is OK! At the very beginning, the wheels were checked again for imbalances - no findings, and of course they were also precisely balanced afterwards.

Conclusion: For some reason a certain tire and rim combination did not fit. Now the car is running as usual and everyone, including the master, has one more curiosity. ;)

Ciao

Great, ... that everything is ok again!

But leaving my car at the FHH while I'm on vacation would cloud my cocktail by the pool from time to time, despite the pragmatic causality.

Who knows whether a journeyman will take it for a spin or something - or be buried or something else when he stands in a workshop for over a week. Then dozens of cold starts, possibly to change parking spaces or drive briefly out of the way.

No, the customer vehicles are in the warm and I don't think that a journeyman is shooing the car around. Outside the company premises, only the masters drive the cars. With me he would have stood outside for two weeks in typical autumn rain. I didn't think it was bad like that. And remember, in 1.5 years there will be a new one anyway. ;)

Additive:

When changing to the new winter contis, the front brake pads were also changed, after almost 60,000 km. I would say that fits. After my question to the master how the brake discs look like, there was the following course of the conversation:

Master: Well, they look good - about half of them. They are then due with the next toppings - somewhere over 100,000.

Me: Oh, the new CTR will come in 2015 anyway.

Master: Then that doesn't affect you anymore. (grinning)

;) He is right!!

But that does not look like species-appropriate keeping.

Right. Actually, they should get out every 10,000 km. : D

Does not matter. Some take their foot off the accelerator well before the bend and others brake just before the bend.
