    :blob3: lees, might want to slow it down a bit coming into turns. also do use a velke? if so then def. slow it down a bit. if you had newer tires it may be alot worse.

    Worn tires slip and spin easier, of course, but when they do spin, new tires will rip out more turf. A lighter touch in turns and when accelerating from a stop might help.
