Went to the AutoX today, and for some reason acording to my shoe polish marks my rear tires needed ALOT less air pressure than my front.

I ended up with 43psi front (this was perfect, rubbed off to the shoulder but no further) and my rear were 34psi and still had room to deflate before they rubbed off the should polish completely.

I was definetly understeering, so to create some oversteer it seams like I would have to deflate them to 32 - 30psi at least.

Is this normal/safe? With the extra weight in the front, some difference I expect, but I wouldn't think 10psi.

Thanks in advace :D

I run higher pressure in the rear actually. I found it promotes a bit of drift better. but I have bigger sway bars and autoX-prepped suspension..are you running street tires or R Compounds?

Street tires, close to stock suspension.

Higher pressure in the back can cause the tires to loose traction sooner, IE oversteer.. the reason I want the rear to be lower is its alittle easier to control to oversteer for beginners (ie me).

Thanks for the input.
