I usually even like it really stiff on low traction tracks, just go to a softer track.

Actually, Yokomo Japan gets their graphite from the same place in San Diego (well El Cajon, 15 miles east of SD, where I live)

We have a ton of machine shops out here, and some of the best graphite comes from here... unfortunately some of the worst does as well.
