Wet setup tips...

Hi, looking like a wet weekend at Prescott with a chance of winning the championship and  would appreciate any tips and recommendations on setup options.

Car is a 1.6K Supersport, running front and rear ARBs.

Normally run Toyo 888Rs and have struggled with traction in the wet @ 18psi.  Also have a set of Yokohama A539s I'm tempted to try but I guess the track would need to be very wet for any advantage here.  I drive to the track so can only take 1 set on the car.

Fingers crossed the forecast is wrong and the sun shines!

Removing the ARBs is worth a try. This is what some experienced lads did at Harewood many years ago and it seemed to work. Anything you can do to remove stiffness is considered to be a good idea.

I`ve got a set of Yoko 21s on 14`` rims in the garage in Rugby if any good to you.

Tom, thanks for the offer but I'm limited to List 1B tyres.

Looking like I will see how the Yokohama 539s go on Saturday and then see where performance and weather takes me on Sunday.
