When I raced asphalt on 3/10 mile track, I ran as big of a tire as I could on the right front, and about a 2" stagger in the front. Also ran 50 lbs of air on rf around 30 in the rear, and around 12 lf ad some cor a cooler night. Also I ran as muck camber as I could on the rf(had to modify the knuckle some) also need to offset the wheel out an inch or two so you can lean the tire in at the top for camber without rubbing anything. I don't know if this will work for you, but thats what i did when I ran asphalt, but I kept breaking belts in my tire, wich everyone else did to, but if you don't run high pressure in the rf you will roll the tire off the bead.
