I race a Ford Escort ZX2 99' in a hornet class. Have trouble with it pushing in the corners any ideas?? Also need more horsepower coming out of corners, need thoughts! Everything must be stock, but we put in heavier spring(from Delta 88') on right front, mistake?? We think it might be too heavy, open for criticism.

Get that spring out of there. Cut the stock springs off until the lower a arms are striaght and level with the ground, then put about one inch of stagger on the front, and see what happens. Put about 14 lbs of air in the right front and about 9 lbs in the left.

There is only one problem with that, you have to run at least 50lbs of air in each tire. That's the rule, but I'll see what I can get by with.
