The geometry of the rear suspension of the Spitfire I drove had been altered in some way (bottom of the rear wheels "toed" out a little rather than in as I recall) so its handling was better in corners, though I was fairly circumspect about how I drove it as it wasn't mine! The owner figured amongst my driving instructors (though not in the Spit!) and later taught me some road handling skills including slow in fast out, something I also use when cycling.
