Yes, reduce the rear tire pressure by 1-2 PSI compared to the fronts. This will induce more oversteer. You'll need to practise on a safe corner over and over.

I suspect also, and C&D said as much, that the car on street conditions will be great. They only mentioned the strong understeer in track conditions.

What pressures were they runningh the tires at?

I recommend streets set to 2 PSI higher at the rear and track even pressure. Give that a shot and you'll probably be happy.

You can also dial in some -ve camber at the front, get an adjustable rear sway bar and set it for oversteer (although I'd recommend someone who knows suspension tuning).

Anyhoo.
