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 mini stocks.

Mini Stock with Stacked Leafs
Problem is that it is loose on dry slick.
What can we do to the springs to help this car?

Does your car have adjustable shackles? If so you lower the right rear and/or raise theleft rear....has always worked for me

Mini stock with rear coils. Loose from throttle pickup to off the turns. 150LR and 200RR springs. 2 1/2" wedge. 1/2" rear stagger.

I use a 175LR and 150RR. When it goes loose off I do as Sooner says or move RR wheel in a bit. Adjustable spring spacers on the front is sometimes easier to add cross.

Had a 900 RF spring, changed to a 800. Dropped tire pressure RF18 to 15, LF 8 to 7, RR 12 to 10. LR 8 to 10, changes stagger from 1/2" to 1/4". Much much better. Just a little loose off turn 4, but so was everyone else.
