Just wondering what the best fix would be to help get better side bite going in to the turns on a tacky track? The car is as quick as the the best when its dry/slick but i'm losing out in the first 2/3 laps because its too loose going in. Would raising the rear roll centre help?
Thanks.

I usually run my panhard bar a little higher on these type of tracks. This will raise your rear roll center as you mentioned. Increase the angle of bar, this will help with side bite (usually 2-4" of split in the mounting positions of the bar), and you can add some weight or move some weight to the right side of the car. Moving weight up in the car will also increase the effect of weight transfer to the body roll. Be careful, you don't want to mess up the car if the track dries out later in the race.
