Front profile??? on a 996

What profile do you guys prefer for the front?
Running 180 55 rear, What do you run on the front and why? 120/70 or 120/60.

Tried both, found 60 would feel like it was tucking in.
70 a lot better.


748R - Less is more !

If you are on track, a 60 makes you attack the corners more cos it drops in noticeably more quickly than the 70.
However, I race with a 70 cos it always feels smoother and more progressive to me.
I have a 60 on the 748 and a 70 on the beast just now, and am looking to change my race front onto the 748 cos I just dont want that sudden drop in on hte road.
