    Question for my real life car racing hosses: Iím curious about fuel load in the wet. Would running heavy be advantageous because the weight will push the tyre tread down through the water and contact the road better, or is that far outweighed by less fuel having less weight to control on a low grip surface?

    I've never tested that specifically to see if the increase in traction is worth the slower acceleration in the wet, but it seems possible. [Thinking FR car with the fuel tank near/over the rear axle]

    It'd be an interesting question for a Porsche 911 racer - they probably experience the most fuel related balance change over a stint due to the tank being in a very lightweight end of the car.

    Our lead man wrecked pretty hard, then got wrecked later by a stupid rejoin, so we retired.
