I race on an oval dirt track (1/3 mile); Honda Civic, stock. My husband, who races a Modified, had me set up similar to a Modified (I think) in that my pressures were 12, 13, 14 & 15 (LF to RF). Another driver suggested that I have a higher pressure in the rear tires (18 to 20), equal on both sides, to loosen up the car (boy, did it loosen it up). Anyway, new tie rod end and shock later, I'm wondering what other drivers of Ministock with FWD are running for tire pressures?
