first, i wanted to thank everyone for all the help on this board, it helps out alot, cause i am still a rookie and need all the help i can get,

thanks

ok now to the problem, my car seems to develop a push right in the middle of the turn, i run a longer track that usually holds some bite as the night goes on, i called my chassis builder and he said to INCREASE RIGHT FRONT SPRING RATE, i was confused because i thought i shoudl decrease it, also with the lighter spring i was bottoming out the shock so i understadn now what he is saying, also along with bottoming out the right front shock i had a bent coil slider on the right rear that i found after the last race, the push usually develops if i let off of the gas in the middle of the turn, but sometimes it pushes even if i stay on the gas, the car seems fine going in and comign out but in the middle is where i have trouble, i am hoping with a new coil slider and stiffer right front spring it will help my problem, but if anyone else has any ideas, i would appreciate them,


thanks in advance

You may have been getting the push when you bottomed out, then as you pick up the throttle the bottoming out stops and so does the push (look at the subject just below yours called tight in middle)
