Thanks.. I'm not doing like pure drag strip speed runs, I'd like to be able to turn.
I'm really looking for the best traction, without being too much, if that's possible.
Basically the tires I have a re super old and crappy... yeah not the best thing for a very high speed run. Needless to say it got away from me and yeah it was ugly.
Would there be value in soft molded inserts in the rear and harder up front? Would that add a noticeable level of stability? I otherwise feel pretty confident with my setup, but it's in need of new rubber for sure.
