I am not sure why but our car is not wearing the tires hardly at all. very little feathering. I grind the tires between the heat and the feature and after the feature they still have scuff marks from the grinder?? I hope this is a sign that we are hooked up pretty good. I check tire temps with a pyrometer and about a 5 degree change across so I am guessing set up is close. My question is I noticed on the right rear there is scuff marks atleast half way down the side wall (maybe even more). Do you guys see this? I am worried that if we continue to run this way it could create a problem.

You might need to up the tire pres. The tire is rolling over on the side wall. And yes this will cause problems.

if you're on hoosiers this is normal. tire temps on our A-40 right rear comes in at about 130 to 140 degrees and you want LESS than 13 psi after the feature. if i get our tires to 150 degrees or 13 or 14 psi the car just goes to ****

I SEE YOUR POINT, I USED TO CHECK TIRE PSI AFTER THE FEATURE BUT QUIT A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO. IT MAYBE TIME TO START AGAIN. I AM VERY CURIOUS HOW MUCH IT MAY BE CHANGING. THANKS
