Default vcu problem

when i bought the freelander 1 it was set up as 2wd with a recon with paperwork vcu so thinking it was time i fitted it i took it round the block and it has the symptoms that it is not working correct tight turn feels like the brakes are on as i turned into my road it did this again not jacked up the wheel yet to do the basic check/test been working away but have a feeling its naff so for the moment i will not drive it
as its been sitting around for nearly a year can this affect the vcu

Don't think so. It's using it that tightens it up.
Where did you get it from?

no idea
it would be interesting to know if they have there own label or stamp on there vcu
as it is possible that the seller gave me a dud one with the paper work and kept the new vcu to sell on
