Have a 97 GRT which is setup to run coil over behind LR, lower frame rail has been lowered. Can any one tell me the best way to combat a corner entry push?
setup: LF-500 RF-450
LR-275 RR-225
short panhard on leftside of pinion
53% left 54.5% rear without driver

track is semi banked, sweeping corners, doesn't take alot of rubber on corner entries

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated

One thing you can do is decrease the upward angle on your 90/10...This will unhook you a little more on braking. When the rear end pivots back toward the front, the shock will not have as much resistance on the downward motion. Just decrease it a little at a time, but make sure the chassis mount is not lower than the rearend mount, this will cause wheel hop into the turns.

Hope this helps.

RJP--

I am assuming your LR is 4 on compression and 6 on rebound. If this is true, take that thing off and switch over to a straight 94 or 93. (93 is better for weight transfer coming out of the turn if you can get by without wheel hop.) The split valve shock on the LR is not allowing you to turn in.

Good luck this year!

You can increase crossweight also, this will take a little RR bite out of the car.
