I have developed a heck of a push. Wondered if anyone might have some suggestions. I run a Rayburn with L 1 3/4 and R 5 1/4 Caster. The springs I run at LF 500, RF 500, LR 375, RR 250. Anyone? Thanks

did you have the push before, if not, have you changed anything -stagger, tire compound, tire pressure, weight distribution, springs, shocks, bar angles etc???

if your really stuck, i would suggest calling rayburn.

Well the push is going in and not getting any bite coming out. Tried raising right bar, lowering left, softened right rear, stiffened left front, even softened the left rear a bit. The push has lessened but still no forward bite coming out of turn.

sounds to me that your car has not enough wedge. not enough(tight-in)too much(loose-in)and of course opposite on exit.

I don't really know to much about Rayburn chassis, but I do know that MasterSbilt chassis call for a little smaller coils in the rear. I use lf(500)rf(400)-100 difference and my car turns excellent through the corners. Now I use 200's in the rear, small lr because of all the wedge I run 180 lbs. I use this with the kid who is just getting into late-model's,Good with throttle. The 200's keep it tight on entry
and allow's me to run very little j bar so the car won't get on the bars so fast with all the wedge I have. Goog foward drive, good side-bite, not a lot of lift,53.0Lft-54.0Rear. Now I don't know if this will help, but maybe!

Lee Browning does know what he is talking about I would take his advice and the kid if that is what he call's him because he is just a kid is really good with the throttle and that comes from car # 97 see you at the races Lee lol
