It get worst when the tires worn down right? I was thinking may be something to do with right height,

On Saturday I have already stiffen up my front sway bar seems to help a bit but still a problem! I am already using 42shore front tires. Next thing I am going to try is Grey Springs or even White!

But I will probably change to 2 hole pistons if I use white springs

Hey Francis, do you think it's the track is super hook up? do you think using 45shore front tire will do?

Ah10, one of the ways to reduce traction rolling problems in the car is to lower the ride height. So what you're saying about the tires wearing down and ride height is not correct. I assume naturally then that the car will be lowered because of the tire wear out. The problem should go away or gets less when the tires wear out (lower ride height). That is the reason also why people pre-true their tires to a smaller diameter. The other reason why people true their tires is to reduce side wall flex of the foams to avoid chunking.

Francis, did you try to reduce front droop i.e. say from 2 to 4 to reduce traction rolling?
