I was told by someone that the back two tires and front right should be the same temp. I havent gotten close, its not that im roasting the rear, its that im not getting heat in the right front....so what do i need to change? Im running a 4-2 in a GRT.

I dont think you will get the rf as hot as the rear because you will always have some tire spin or slide the tail a little and you cant spin the rf at all and it wont slide as much as the rear, plus there is alot more force on the rear tires. I have got the rf as close as 30degrees to the rear and the car was awsome. JMO

I was in the claim area with the guy that told me this, and he took his temps and then mine. The track was dry slick and his rear tires were 134, as was his right front....mine were 180 on back and about 110 on the RF.

A balanced setup will do this. What it will take to balance yours??? It can be a long road, but well worth it. Start by checking your front roll center. Also circle track magazine has been doing a lot of write ups on this subject, might want to look into them. (they also have a website www.circletrack.com )

Is that GRT a factory built 4-2?? Or did you put it on like that? Reason I'm asking, I've been running the 4-2 for a while and had heard GRT was making them, just wanted to know for sure if they were for sale yet.
