If you add more caster (more spacers in the front) you will increase the on-power steering at mid corner and corner exit. plus you the car will be more stable in the straight away

one way to fix that is if you have a tire truer you can cut about 1mm of your front tire, that can help with this problem.

Try putting spacers to avoid rubbing. But make sure to readjust your track width to 200mm. Hope this helps

I was thinking, I want to get a fuel gun to make it easier for my g/f and or pit guy to fuel my car without giving it a bath... oi vey! some people cant AIM !! ok , its out of my system, plus I am cleaning my car tonight.

but what about a truer? it that a good investment? or should Ijust pay $10 to have my tyres (a set of 4) cut?

is it important to cut the tyres? bc I have ran them outof the box...

the front tires out of the box are usually larger than the rear

you want to match them or cut the front a little smaller than the rea ,the rea usually wear out faster than the front changing your overdrive ratio troughout the race
