I may try the conversion at two of the tracks I run at I wear the rears quite a lot more than the fronts and I can feel that the car seems to become looser at the end of 30 minute mains(but the car is still very driveable imo) Originally I thought that maybe it was my driving style (yanking on the throttle hard with some unneeded wheel spin as opposed to smoothly applying power)
but it seems that certain tracks I experience this uneven wear alot more . Specifically very large higher traction tracks (full throttle speedway kissimme) I get this eneven wear pattern, but as always my car and my driving are works in process, and this is what makes it so fun

As are mine..... I really like the conversion and I'm actually running alot smaller split of about 2mm. But I spinout Rarely now where as before I'm sure it was all me I was spinning out alot. More front wheel drive keeps my A$$ from hangin out and I can Pull it through the sharper turns faster with more control on throttle. Probably a bad habit to start with but if it keeps me straight on the track for now The leaders won't kill my car or their's running me over broadside.
