I remember reading somewhere about if your springs are too hard or too soft it could cause this issue, but can't seem to find that info now. I'm running kit set up except that I have no shims under the rear suspension mounts. Anybody have any suggestion as to what I can do to to slow down the tires wear?
You could try increasing droop by 1mm all round, my arc & vbc did exactly what you have described,I did this on both cars & increased the longevity of the tyres to double what I was getting previously,but didn't loose any corner speed or handling characteristics ( I ran kit droop settings on both cars before the increase ) hope this may help you

Thanks Professor, I may try that the next time I get out. What I did last week was go softer on the springs all the way around and it seemed to even the wear out better. I had been taking away rear droop because the back end was loose off power.

What's a good fdr to aim for when running mod? I'm going to run either a 4.0 or 4.5T mod motor and I'm not sure what the fdr should be around?

Depends on what shocks you're running. Short or long?
