Every time I make a quick left turn I feel the ass end off my Legend hydroplaning. Is this common with the G1 or is it unique to my Legend ?

back tire treads worn?
All of my tires are practically new.
what kind of tires do you have and is it dry or raining?
I have Pirelli's & the weather here is mostly dry.
im at a loss dude,

my coupe doesnt hydroplane when its not wet...because then its not hydroplaning ;)

--and ive taken some friggn sharp turns just to test out the tires when it was dry.

how fast you goin?

you cant hydroplane unless it's wet.

are you experiencing body roll/oversteer?
sounds like suspension

it sounds like you need new struts or that one part of the suspension that looks like a hook that hangs over your rear tires. theres a bushing that connects two parts and that seems like its loose. a good way to tell is to jack up the side of the car that wobbles in a steer and see if you can turn the wheel. theyre supposed to stay stiff and straight, but if they turn a lil like the front wheels do (obviously) then thats probably your problem.
hey 89acura,

im working in deland FL right now :)
what are you doin there? texas isnt nice enough? where did u get you brake pads from?
just working in deland for a summer internship. actually, last sunday we were in jacksonville.

the job was just a really good opportunity and I typically dont stay in texas for my summers. i alsways leave to go work.

I picked up my axxis pads from summitracing. they were comparably priced as i looked up about 4 different vendors.
