hey Rob, i've only been running once a month lately, unlike you , you run every weekend and sometimes twice during the week. And also you have to say it makes a difference if the track is dirty also. see you in ten or so days Peter

I would leave it there. Small tires, like at the end of a main the car may be close. Weigh it with 56mm tires. If not try some titanium screws on the top of the car.
