In the heat races it is usually quite muddy and I always seem to have a bad push but when It gets dryslick for the features it handles great. What do I have to change to get it to handle for the heat races but be able to change it back for the feature? Thanks for any help

you could change the stagger or air pressure, or wheel offset.

If you don't have weight jacks try taking the front stagger out and adding more rear stagger also if its still tight move the right rear out for the heat race.

The only tires I have are 255/70/15 (absolutely no racing tires allowed). The rr tire has 2 inch offset. I usually run tire pressure of: lf 21 and the rest at 23 because that is what most people run.

get yourself some different size tires. You will need rear stagger. Tires that were in my stable when I ran a similiar class: 295-50, 275-60, 255- 70, 255-60(?).

Put a 4 in. offset on the rr. and increase the air pressure on the rf by 2 lbs. drop the lr by 2 lbs and the lf by 2. If the track gets slick in the feature put a 2 in offset on lr.same air pressure as above.

I agree with most everyone else the simplest and quickest thing I have done is move out the rr tire on wet tracks. This is fast simple and seems to be quite effective.

What if I move some weight back by my bumper would that swing my rear end around better?
