Default Proline prime on "HIGH" traction clay

Hey guys.
I run on very hi traction clay i mean like carpet(with Tekno sct410.3) !! I'm running Proline prime(clay) and no matter what i do to get traction out of the chassis they are still too much. I like my car(sct) a little on a loose side to suit my driving style.
What methods do you guys do to the tires to get some grip out of it ? I know its kind of a odd question !! most would be asking for more grip

Just so we're clear, you want less grip, right?

Switch to sanded down proline clay electron. Adjust how much tread left by how much less bite you want.

Have you tried simple changes like moving rear hubs back for longer wheelbase?

Lol I wish it's that simple !!
Everyone is running prime. I mean i podium every time out but stuck at 2nd and with my driving style i need it to be a little looser in the rear so i can push harder. I feel like i can only push at 85% at the present time and if i try pushing above that the grip will bite me !!

Yes. Buy a Hudy or other brand tire truer and cut tread into them. Cut out the sidewall and try a firmer foam, like a JC gray.

I can relate I ran some super soft proline primes heavily marinated and sauced.. My t4 would traction roll just thinking about pushing around the corners.. I stopped saucing and after a day of practice the finnaly calmed down. Still grippier than all get out. I ran ions on my scte soft compound and could drift get loose in the corners a little to lose.. Never had the chance to use the m4 ions I'm sure they would have been perfect.. Sold the scte I miss that truck.
