im running a metric stockcar 1/2 mile banked track car is 2700lbs and my scaling #s are 51 cross 51 rear 53 left. i am running 1100rf 900lf 225lr and 200 rr springs. i have a bad push in and out of the turns. but right now i am running a sway bar. what can i do with this sway bar to help cure my push? its ok on tacky tracks but on dry slick the front end skates up the track. i have the bar preloaded now. should i disconnect it or feature time? thanks for any help

Stockcar, How did you get 51% rear on a metric stock car and only weigh #2700? either you have really done some work or your scales are off. Just curious.

sorry i forgot that the 2700lbs is with no fuel or driver in it....it weighs 2950 with me in it and a full 22 gallons of gas. sorry for the confusion.

besides removing the rear swaybar which is a great reccommendation you could try reducing your cross weight to 48-49% or change to two 200# rear springs to loosen up your car or even increase your rear stagger(you didn't mention your current stagger) as well as reduce front stagger.changing stagger is a great tuning tool to change cross weight in small increments as well as tire spring rate.
