<VV> tire pressure - was wobble

Yes, "always"....  starting from bias ply tire days.  Of course we are now 
running on radials so I'm not real sure just how applicable that "always" is 
to modern tires.

I typically DO run a 10psi diff if the trunk is empty and an 8psi diff if 
I've got over 50lbs (or so) of weight in there.  Works for me and helps keep 
the nose from being too bouncy.

The autocrossers (for the race) will go to 40psi all the way around.  So, 
what (if anything) does that say?

Finally, what about FCs?  Was a differential - front to rear - also 
recommended there?  I don't know, but I suspect not.
