I want to know all the ways you can change a car to get more sidbite. We run a swingarm car and woth the track tires its hard to get sidebite, I can get the car where he can drive it in the corner hard and it wont push or anything it just slides up the track. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

What type of panhard bar are you running?maybe try putting more angle in it.Rear springs might be to stiff(right rear)I run a swing-arm car and have tons of side-bite.You could also try alittle more dia,put on different offset wheel on rr like a 4" or run alittle less psi in rr tire just to name a few. Hope this helps (I WOULD START WITH THE PAN HARD BAR) c-ya

what would you call too stiff on the rr, or better yet what would be too soft?

Most of the time i run a 225rr 250lr,I have ran my rr spring as stiff as 300 and as soft as 150 on a real dry-slick SMOOTH track.Don't be afraid to experiment alittle bit.Oh i have also ran more than a 100lb split across the rear.By the way what type of chassis do you run and what lower control arms are used? Also what do you run for front springs?
