Yep, that is one of the tricks I tried along with many others from the F1 gurus that are out there.
I always run Tamiya HBR Mediums up front, preferably the older # as I feel they have less steering than the newer ones.
I don't sauce the fronts at all, ever, on asphalt. Carpet, sauce varies.
Just use the sauce of choice for that track, match what is being laid down by the other cars.
I also always run the black front springs but don't like the spacer, gets unpredictable and doesn't seem to make it push any more than without the spacer, just seems to skip around a bit more.
The harder compound tires seem to take away all of the steering and not just some of it.
Still think there is a magic durometer/shore rating that I haven't found that will get it just right when the mediums bite too much.
Til then, the superglue has me pretty happy.
The premounts are about as close to perfect as you can get for touchy asphalt.
