The setting of classical configuration space kinetic theory of polymeric fluids is extended by adopting the field of internal momentum into the set of independent state variables. The internal momentum predicted by the extended theory compares well with the internal momentum seen in molecular simulations. The extended theory is also shown to provide an intrinsically consistent formulation of the time evolution of macromolecules with internal friction.
