    Pro line street fighter tires are too sticky

    Hey guys

    I bought some street fighter tires and put them on my stock wheels and glued them. My problem is my
    truck rolls super easy now. It's almost no fun to drive...

    I even lowered the truck so its 1/2" off the ground and it still does it. The street in front of my house is
    grippy asphalt. I thought they would be about like the stockers.

    What can I do?

    Maybe tighten the slipper so you can spin or lock the diffs?

    The slipper is almost all the way tight.

    Is your truck setup for bashing?
    Do you have swaybar's?
    what shock oil are you running?

    you can fix alot of the rolling issue's buy putting heavier weight oil in the shock's, adjusting the roll center on the truck and tightening up the swaybar's a bit.

    I basically had to relearn how to drive mine after putting Street Fighters on it because of the extra grip. Took some getting used to, but now I do alright with them.

    Mine grip pretty good but Ive never flipped it even on high speed 180s. The problem lies in the truck chassis. Go LCG and dont look back. Lowering a stock chassis will only make body roll worse as you took all the preload out of the springs so on a left turn there is no resistance from the right side to keep it upright.

    If you don't want to invest in a LCG chassis, just setup the shocks as listed above and continue to drive it. You'll learn how to compensate for the sticky tires.

    If your driving on the street, sway bars are a huge help. A-arms should be about level and a thicker oil. 40 to 50 wt. I usually run about 2 to 2.5 degrees negative camber on the front. 1 to 1.5 negative camber on the rear. 1 degree toe out on the front. Watch for tire wear and rotate your tires frequently if your running 3s.
