need some setup help lf 927 rf 651 lr 697 rr 680 car weighs 2955 cross is 45.6% left% is 54.9% I get real loose in the middle and exit on turns running a 1/4 mile dirt high banked track. I have already put about 200 pounds of weight right behind the left rear tire car has to weigh 3000lds There is nothing up front left to move to the back so Im wondering if I would be better off to add more weight to the rear to get my rear % up any help will be appeciated. Running about 2 " of stagger on the rear and none on the front. Car is not real bad on a heavy track but a feature time when it gets dry slick they are running off from me and im real loose. car is a metric gm monty.

You need to get weight off of the LF and on to the LR. LF is to heavy. You also need more rear %. Don't worry about going over the min. weight by adding more lead to the car. If you get the car working right it will make up for it.
Try to get these %'s- Left 52-54%, Rear 52-54%, Cross 50-52%.
If the track is going dry slick for the feature take the 2" of stagger out of the rear and put in the front.
