I was wondering what tire pressure you should run on the car.
I run LF - 8 RF - 16
LF - 10 RR - 14
Car handles great early on but it gets lose as the track dries.

Try goinig down on the right rear to take some stagger out that will tighten you up a little you also need to record your tire pressures when the race is over and see how much air your gaining you may need to go down in the back on both sides to be where you want when the race is over....hope this helps....Towman

I've found it depends on how hard the track gets. The track I run at gets REALLY hard later on in the season and by feature time. We have to run Hoosier RC4's that are pretty hard. My setup is LF 12, RF 17-19, LR 12-15, RR 13-15. Believe it or not, the car handles better when the track dries with higher pressures. I've found that with lower pressures, the tire cups to bad and doesn't wear across the whole tread. If you tires are wearing the outer 1/3 on each side and not wearing the middle, you might need more pressure.
