  1. Welcome to RennTech Pull the oil filter and look at it, if it is full of metal, you have major problems.
  2. It is called balancing. If you have been running the car with the tires at 17.4 PSIG (1.2 bar) and 34 PSIG (2.4 bar), I would wager that the front tire flat spots are permanent from the tire breaking up internally from severely low pressure running and overheating.
