back off of the bite and close up your stagger. A short bar is going to put mechanical sidebite in the car and tighten it up going in, but it will also cause more loose roll steer, which will hurt a loose in the middle condition. One thing you might try is a stiffer right front than left front, don't go overkill, maybe 75#. That will free you up going in, and will let you get back in the throttle earlier. It will also promote forward bite.
