I did this to two sets of tires on two different cars when I first started tracking but later found that it was actually slower and causing me more money lol.

The Z2's are really sticky tires, -2.5 would really help if the op likes to plow into turns.
Iím not understeering a lot actually with my square setup. Rather I spend more time on catching the rear end coming out during both trail braking and powering out. Though there is one off-camber low speed turn that the front left hatesÖ Looking forward to what added camber does.

^this may be true, but I personally couldnít tell any difference. I just swap L&R every day of an event, and F&R every event. The only time I care about the direction is when it rains.
