I should agree with Manu.

He was the only one that tested my bike at the Nats (others wanted but racing schedule was so tight...)

There are very few tyre choices for 1/8 scale. I raced Venom tyres and inserts due to easier availability for me while other drivers mixed OTO/ZH/Venom tyres and OTO/custom front inners plus OTO/Venom/custom rears.

But I think most important factor for the "front end pushing" seen at the video are the crash bars placement. If we look at bike┤s mid point of wheelbase, OTO based prototypes place crash bars contact point closer to the front, and CG make them to unload that wheel.

My design places crash bar contact point over spur gear and CG is much more advanced and raised. This makes the front tyre to get a lot of pressure from bike┤s weight at slow corners. This could lead to an unloaded rear wheel if not properly tuned, but I feel fast enough even in rainy conditions.
