We've recently started racing a Snow Bros. sportsman on clay. We've got the wet and sloppy setup down, but the dry slick is giving us a really hard time. If anyone has any ideas, we would appreciate any and all help.

Thanks!

Your biggest change is within the driver. Entering the corners a little softer, using more front brake, and getting into the gas smoother is a big plus. As far as I've learned on set-up, using about 1% more tail weight and increasing the tire pressures on all corners 1-2 pounds has been pretty effective. 55% left weight and 125 pounds left rear bite help get my late model off of the corners very quickly, but all cars act differently (I am running a 4 bar car with the LR shock behind the rear end housing). Good luck!!!

Thank you very much for your help. We have always raced on oil-based tracks, and we moved to clay and it was like...whoa. It is very different, and we managed to pick up the wet setup just by experimentation alone. But, we'll try this, and once again, thanks!

Eddie what does the car do when it blackons over, push or loose and where. It's easy to fix just need to know what it does, also is it a four link.
