Welcome to the club. Slide and roll.

I may have to get a new set of tires if they won't allow that bead of CA I put on the outside edge of the front tires. (I may try cleaning them with debonder or acetone.)

Glue is legal for the sidewalls. No need to 'clean up' your tires.

More ideas to try this week for testing. Hopefully I can cut out of work early a couple days to get some laps in. OT pays well, but it cuts into my track time.

Thanks for the heads up about the CA. I guess it's time to play with weight distribution.
