    I've only had my RWD 70 for 2 weeks. I've got less than 800 miles on the odometer. I think the car is great and handles wonderfully, except....

    when I do a quick lane change at high acceleration or higher speed (50+), the rear seems to be sliding (like on ice or snow).

    I've seen this thread:
    Checked Alignment: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

    I'm wondering if this is the same thing ?

    Check tire air pressure is all equal, and on the high end ... 50lbs.

    I looked at that, they all say 44 (this is a 70s with 19" tires)

    Yes, get it checked out asap.
    Maybe the alignment is out of wack.
    Or worse, something isn't properly mounted/fitted.
