I had a silver / black, left hand drive MINI Cooper* as a Christmas present.
After Christmas dinner I was testing her out on the living room floor and I noticed there was a definate pull to the right when travelling in a straight line. There is no camber on my wooden living room floor, so it must be the suspension. I am taking it back to Halfords tomorrow to get it checked on a KDS machine !!

Think I've been drinking to much. :p Must lie down!! :eek:

My new Maisto MINI does the same thing! I contacted my Maisto dealer and they said it had something to do with the camber of hardwood floors in the US vs. UK. Something about the pitch of the wood grain. Sounds fishy to me. I think my dealer (KayBee Toys, Hyannis) is not being truthful.

If you are unsure I'd be pleased to test out the camber on your polished wooden floor with the my Yellow Peril*. I'm fairly confident that after I've given it a thorough testing ther will be no need for a KDS, but a JCB might be more appropriate.
