2) front tires simply have too much bite, even the hard ones, so maybe stuffing an offroad insert them to create less traction?
This is Ryan Lee from Sweep HQ.
I also faced to the same issue when I tested the Sweep F1 first time.
I couldn't drive my car at all because it lost the rear traction suddenly as soon as I steer.
this is not because of front grip, but because of rear.
if you trimmed the inner gluing lips off, the rear tire's sidewall started working properly.
This modification will make your tire assembly easier too.
With this modification and changes on the car's set up, I think there are still people who want 'less' front grip.
so we are considering making Super Hard compound for front tires.
White insert for the front tire was not intended by us, it was our mistake! appologies..
As for front tires inner gluing lips, they will make the sidewall harder. I didn't try to cut them off because I think they should be there to leave the sidewall harder. Same idea goes to the insert too. yes their wider width and the sticky tapes make difficult to mount the tire over the insert. but once you get used to it, you will find it's not that difficult.
It's a good idea trimming minimum amount of sticky area which you don't want to cover the wheels gluing bead. I think this wouldn't make the sidewall too soft.
