It has to do with the setup and your driving style. If you have a setup that natually has a push to it, it'll wear the front tires more. Also, if you're driving hard into the corner instead of smoothly, that'll also wear them more. Combine the two, well, then you get a lot of wear.

well it depends on the layout...i have been running 2 for over a year now...i mostly run on asphalt ...works great on power steering . going to 6 will make the car very difficult to drive off power not consistant for the most part..

Joerocket,

Check out mine or Jeff Dayger's setups from the Novak race on the Corally USA website. They'll point you in the right direction.

mcgreevy, i have almost your exact set up on my car , as far as springs , wt oil , camber link positions, camber , droop. the thing that i dont understand is that there are a few other rdx's at my local track and they dont have this problem, and you could almost say its the way i drive , but i didnt have this problem with my xray or tc3'S. im going racing tomorrow and i changed a few things so i will see what happens. one more questions, could bump steer make your car push? thanks for all your help.
