How do you get a car that is great every place else on the track to loosen up in the middle of the corner. I've been looking for that little change but can't find it with out making the car loose going in.

The best way to "stretch" McCreary tires is to inflate then to 30psi and put them in a heated paint booth for 2 hrs. Can grow as much as 2 1/2inches but don't be smart and put 35 or 40 psi they can explode.

I had the same problem, it was just a tick tight in just the middle, entry and exit were great. A long time racing buddy told me to try raising the panhard bar in small 1/16" increments to fix it and so not to effect the cars entry or exit. I did it twice and after an 1/8" it loosened it up in the middle but did not seem to effect entry or exit. It worked for me. Maybee it can also help you? Give it a shot, if not its easy to put back.

Thanks guys. We work with stagger quite a bit. It really affects how a the car handles. If we don't have the right amount each time, we go backwards.The tracks we run you can only run American Racer tires. But will still try the paint booth trick.
