I drive a stubed rocket car and have been loading up the right fornt too much. Im usualy lifting the left front off the ground about 4 inches. The car was binding up to much and developed a push in the middle of the turn, and at times was to hard to controll, But was fast for the most part. So I went from a 1350# spring on the RF to a 1500# spring. But now the car wont roll and was way to loose. I tried a stiffer LR but just pushed agin. Can anyone help.
RF 1500 7500
LF 1350 7600
RR 200 9400
LR 225 9400 With spring behind rear.
Lift arm 500 with 3 valve

any sugestions?

You might consider going back a couple steps to where the car was fast. Try hanging a piece or two of lead up on the lf corner, maybe low early in the night when track is hooked. This seems to calm our GRT down and away from the big wheelies.
