I need a tick more rr bite getting INTO corner. When track is tacky it is perfect, feature time, it's close but I need something small. Any suggestions? Track is a HIGH bank 1/4. Car is 2 link w/ pullbar, J-bar, lr 225, rr 200, cross 52.2%, rear 55.7%, rear split is 103 lbs. w/o driver. In feature time when track dries out it doesn't feel like it's getting on rr to stick it and turn. I'm thinking of either softening rr spring, taking little cross out, or running long panhard bar behind axle over to rr. The car is perfect everywhere else. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

We fixed the same problem by adding a 50lbs brick on top of the fuel cell. The higher the weight the better.

drop the rr spring 25 lbs and that should take care of it.

I agree with alky and 28, add the weight, my car is simalar to your setup and added weight high and to the rear, actually it is on top of the fuel cell. 58.3% rear now, was around 56%, same Ls. as you but only 80 lbs. lr. made a big diference. I'm 225 lr and 200 rr springs car is good...

You could also soften the RR shock a step and or raise the rear of the car 1/2".
