dbarnes thanks for the insight...but one clarification. What excactly where u saying here: " increase rear tire pressure or decrease front tire pressure to reduce oversteer, and decrease rear tire pressure or increase front tire pressure to reduce understeer" ??

Seems the two statements contradict each other unless I'm reading it wrong.
