I usually go smaller tires overall, and less stagger as grip comes up. Usually when the tires get a little small th ecar pushes a little bit more, but then having less stagger give somes of that steering back .

I've noticed link cars tend to like a little bit less stagger, in comparison to tbar cars. Just something you'll have to fiddle around with though.

Thanks for that Harbuckle That's why you are the MAN....too bad you're in Bellingham Get that edumacation though!!

Originally when I ran magenta's all around the front wore quicker, but now with magenta gray it is equal.
That gives me something new to try....thanks bud
