Try the KM2 in the back. I like them better than the Baja tread

The last time you had pro input your car ran like crap. You can get it close enough on your own. From what it sounds like you're almost there.

Took a quick video yesterday. Sorry its not the greatest quality. It's hard trying to hold a camera and a 1 year old at the same time.
