I am working on the new Chassis Guide as I have promised. Everyone needs to contibute to this to make it the best it can be. I will be posting scenarios in different classes and need YOUR opinion of what the car needs to help these specific situations. Please contribute to make this guide the best we can make it.

Here is the first scenario for pure stocks.

Pure Stock with stacked leafs.
On a wet track, out of the turns, this car has a throttle push.
What can you do with the rear geometry to make it work correctly?

C'MON guys, put SOMETHING here, I don't run a leaf rearend, but here goes, more wedge in the LR or take a leaf out of the RR to get more roll onto the tire? Sounds like you'd want to keep weight on the RF till it tacks up.

Add 1/2" lowering block to left rear spring OR add 1/2" to 1" rear stagger.

How about changing the Right Rear Lead or Pinion Angle

You're going the wrong way, Jammin! If the car pushes on exit, then it's probably got too much wedge in it already. Throwing more stagger in it will help, dropping the right rear one hole on an adjustable shackle, putting a lowering block under the left side, or taking a short leaf out of the left side. Anything you can do to loosen 'er up will help. If you have an adjustable lowering block, you could trail the right side a touch. Be conservitive when doing this! Running the rear much out of square will cause a miraid of other problems and you'll be fighting fires every where ya look!
