Coming from driving cars not equipped with abs that is scary that the rears lock up before the fronts. I haven't read the whole sticky so feel free to flame but do guys consider running a "stickier" compound in the front so they don't have that happen. I guess you could run an adjustable prop. Valve but the easiest and most cost effective would be to play with pad compounds.
