I run a big spring front car with rear coilover/monoleaf on a semi-banked 1/3 mile clay oval. The track is sometimes tacky and sometimes dry slick. I've got my car handling ok on the bottom, but would like to be able to run the top better. Also have trouble qualifying on wet heavy track, but am probably over driving the car. Any ideas?

on a heavy track give the car a little rear steer, and remove your 90/10 run a light spring on the right rear, get the car to roll over on the right rear. you'll know your car is set when you feel the rear rotate. I love my mono on a heavy track. More stagger with help with running up high also.

Thanks for the reply. Since I originally posted, I did add 3/8" of rear steer, increased the angle of the 90/10 shock, went to a much softer rf spring, and settled myself down a bit. After these changes, I dropped .7 second from qualifying time. The track however, has been dry later on. It seems to plant against the cushion better with a 200rr spring. Also increased preload 3/4 inch on 5th coil- this seemed to add a ton of forward bite!
