i agree you could always use more tail weight on dry slick . you never mentioned what your trouble is tho is it pushing,loose,spinning the tire ?

Try moving out the LR wheel by an inch. This should really tighten the car in the middle.

Poboy2, how does moving your LR wheel out an inch help in the middle?

By moving the left rear tire out you take out left side weight wich gives you more side bite.

Thanks Baker
