This passed saturday the car handled great at the beginning of the feature race but about halfway into the race the car started to tighten up and push a liitle to the wall coming out of the turns. I think the tires are heating up and the air pressures are rising. My current pressures are lf 15,rf 23,lr 18,rr18. I'm also running 3" front stagger, and 1.5" rear stagger. Any advise on air pressure to keep the car slightly loose greatly appreciated.Thanks.

One thing I forgot to mention, I'm running 3" offsets all the way around the car. I have a couple of 2" off wheels, so were should I put them to loosen the car up a bit, or should I just adjust air the pressure.

Increase the rear stagger to 21/2" reset the wheel weights back to original & try
that. The stagger will help keep the car turning on exit.

in practise run so hot laps and see how your tires grow and then just try to get them to grow as evenly as you can .
