    Been running some practice laps at Fort Worth and I keep running into this problem:
    After running a few laps at 30~ish secs a lap, I have a spin. Tyre temps soar as I leave load of lines on the track. I recover and start racing again, but now I cant go anywhere near the same speeds, as I always lose the rear end coming out of the turns, normally T1.

    Now I assume this is due to the high tyre temps. Can I get round this without changing tyres?

    If you are certain you have a decent and legitimate setup in the car (defaults are), then you are driving in too hard, back off a bit, and accelerate out more.

    normally when somebody spins, caution will come out. So that is a good time to change the tires

    but yeah here it is hard on exit, so try to be smooth on the gas

    OK, smoother on the gas...ooooh boy.

    I'm using the Razorblade setup, which I've found better than the default.

    I know I do that with a wedge adjustment.
