I can probably help ya but I'll need to know your current set-up and what it's doing. Is it the short rear bars or the long ones? Normally, or at least with our Rayburn their pretty good on slick tracks.

THANKS FOR THE REPLY WERE RUNNING THE SHORT BARS SHOCKS ARE LF,LR,RR ARE 170-35 BILSTEN AND A 0110110 ON RF SPRINGS ARE 500RF, 450LF,300LR, 275RR. WEIGHTS ARE WHAT RAYBURN CALLS FOR.ANYTHING I NEED TO CHANGE?

I had good luck with this setup on a 3/8th medium & high banked tracks: 550lf 500rf 300lr 225rr, 4 to 6in of rake in the "J" bar, and 200 to 225lbs of wedge, 5th arm w/a 300lb sping & 7300 shock, 58% rear, 56% left, 55% cross, and approx 2 to 2.5in of stagger. Make sure your wheelbase & ride heights are set correctly. The thing I learned with a Rayburn is their a momentum chassis and you normally can run them into the corner pretty hard but as with anything on a slick track throttle control is crucial from the middle out. Brakes are often overlooked on corner entry problems, if your just a lil' tight, more rear brake will help if your setup is right or if your alittle loose in, more front brake will help.
Good luck!
