I did it once. My TC3 didn't drive that bad, but it was interesting. Since I had the same width front and rear and the same compound front and rear, the car had way too much front end bite. this seemed to be amplified by the fact that the back end had less bite since there were dual compound tires in the rear.

In our local track they use 40 rear all around with good results. I will be trying it tomorrow.

Don't do it! The front and rear gas compounds are two completely different kinds of rubber with different characteristics. If you run front tires on the rear you will just spin out. It is a waste of time trying to dial the car in.
