Tires, tires and did I say tires!!! Get yourself a decent set. @ 50%? probably old by now, rubber vulcanizes and effective grip is reduced along with half tread life. personally I never measure a tire depth from the base. I always measure from the wear bar. Because at wear bar tires are junk. As mentioned adding weight can reduce front end control. the cars are generally well balanced, almost 50/50 weight distribution.
