Not the way I play it. I know that some folks like to under-inflate the
rears, but I hate the mushy, rubber-band transitions with this setup. I
much prefer to OVER-inflate the rears to induce oversteer. This works by
making the tire patch smaller. It gives much crisper, more-linear handling.
Also, since the wear patterns on the rear tires become very different than
the wear patterns on the front tires, frequent tire rotation extends tire
