Default Problem with rubber on carpet

HI
I run cs 22's on carpet and have always had the problem of about 3 mins into the race the tires start to squeal, then the car becomes loose and overly agressive and pretty much impossible to drive. I presume the tires are over heating. If any one has any things i can try to stop it i would be mroe thna gratefull.

Cheers

the tyres are over heating. buy some cs27's and that will solve the problem but you may need tyre warmers to bring them up to temp for the start of the race

changing tires isnt an option as they are a set control tire, so i need to make a set up change.

Hi
Get rid of some grip from your car, so that your tyres do not overheat as you get into the race, as you obviously have far to much grip from the offset.

One classic way to fight overheating is to also drill a couple holes with a reamer on the inside of the wheel, to allow some airflow inside the insert.
It s easier to do when the tires are not mounted.
It helps a great deal, especially when you don t want to change settings.

I assume it's your rear tires are the main problem, so I would suggest you put a spool up front! This always helps on my car!!

You can also try a different additive, this can make a huge difference!!
I really like the Orion Purple when I have this kinds of problems, Part#ORI44100
