Mr. Ribbs, Are you running a full late model or a limited? What degree are you running the pullbar at? Is it a genuine Rayburn pullbar or something else. Try moving your pullbar up in the front to level or as close as you can get it. Increase your rear percentage to 58%. Put a short rear bar on the right 19 1/2 inches. 4 to 5 inches stagger and about 230 lbs. rear split. If your track is normally smooth you might look at some split valves on your shocks. Maybe 3/5 on the right and 5/3 on the left. This might get fairly tight going in I just use more rear brake to get it in, but its a rocket comin off. If you have any questions that maybe I could help you with email me at bandbracing@ptcnet.net. I've raced Rayburns now going on 6 years. Hope this helps alittle.
