Did you try a little toe in on the rear to settle the car down under braking?
I have. Over the last couple years I've been trying various combinations of toe to see what they do. Some work better and some are terrible.
Some of it also comes down to the car and the driving style. From what I've heard about the handling of the 99 compared to the NA or particularly the 1.6, the same changes most likely will not have the exact same effect. Similarly, I've been told that I seem to turn in pretty abruptly compared to others. Someone with a smoother corner entry is probably going to find that what works for me isn't going to do the same for them. I keep trying new things and I'm still developing as a driver so I'm sure I'll keep finding more tweaks that work better and worse than the last ones as I try to close the last second on the leaders.
