Can someone shed some light on the rear tire temps? Should you be trying to get the RR and the LR some what even? I always have my RR a ton hotter than the LR,we are loose and the rr feels like it slides out from under the car.I tighten it up and get it to pop wheelies and still not much lr temp..any help ? thanks

if you can get the temps on the rear even just by touching them w/ your hand. then you have a really good balanced setup.

I hope this isn't bad but you know i think i am having a hard time deciding if the rr is too hot because of sliding out from the car or if its working hard/ make sense? when you touch the tires after a race heat or main with your hand the rr is 2or3 times hotter.I run a short panhard with 2 1/2 to 3 inches of angle.

you should post your spring rates and we could help you a little more. but if your RR is that much hotter then it is working a lot harder. you realize that if the RR is sliding out the LR is sliding too. So it would have to be how much the RR is working. just something to think about

Thanks..The car is a metric stub with metric arms,I run rf 850 and lf 750 with a 225lr clamped,and 200 rr on top of housing.rr was 4 linked,can be z linked real easy....If I went to a 175 rr wouldn't it make it real tight? were already pulling the lf of the ground.
