i can not get my super stock to handle last week i drove it on top the whole feature and it handled but i moved into the low line to pass a car and it pushed up the hill. i run 10 psi on the right side and 8 psi on the left. it is an older car i think a 1988 HOWE. it's also a leaf spring but i do have weight jacks on the front. so if anyone has any tips it would be a much appriciation

put more air in the right rear or a spacer in the right rear or add more weight in the left rear. and i think leaf springs are no good for dirt tracks you should change to coil springs

The wissota super stock division requires stock type rear end set ups - leafs and solid 3 or 4 links. Therefore, the leaf cars do quite well in the division. At our track a driver with a leaf car won three consecutive super stock points championships. So, there is nothing wrong with staying with the leaf car.

Try what DirtRacer said and also make sure you change your leaf springs periodically. The disadvantage to the leaf springs is that they do wear out and need to be replaced on a consistent basis (more or less frequently depending on what rates you're running).
