We run a big sweeping half mile dirt with a mod but seem to have trouble with the car getting through the corners. When we run paper clip tracks that are half miles we are really quick. We have a z-link right rear and a 2 link left rear with a long bar behind rear end. 750lf. 850rf. 225lr. 200rr.
Also have a biscuit bar and 90/10. 53ls weight 59 tail and around 70 lbs of bite in rear of car. This track hardly has much of a straight away you really are turning about the whole time. The car seems to lay over on the right side and never wants to come back to the left. If I put a 900lbs spring in the rf and a 225 or stiffer in the rr. will this help the car back to the left side and will it help with forward bite?? This track will get dry on the bottom but stay heavy on the top and we play follow the leader, we are just tyring to get the car to work a little better on the bottom to middle so maybe we can do some passing. Any input would be greatly appreciated, Thanks.

Any chance your cg is too high? Where do you have your lead placed?
