I am in need of some of your expert advice!!! I have a 4 link z bar car that need some more forward bite comming off the corners. The car is handling great and is fast everywhere else on the track. Expecially fast Midshute. Its a brand new chassis and I have only raced this car 4 times (first time in a 4 bar car).

Set up details

57.5% rear. 52.5 cross. total 2352.
Springs RF 750 LF 650 RR 175 LR 225
Shocks RF 4555 LF 4040 RR 4040 LR 4040
1050 Jerk bar spring at a 16 deg angle.
4 bar link angle UPPER 28 LOWER 15
Z link angle Front 15 Rear 0

The car is lifting the LF tire around 4-8 inches in the straights. We are very happy with the car except just need to get more bite off. Other Mods are pulling me by 1/2 -1 cars comming off. I have won a B-Feature and a Heat race (and was running 3rd in a feature before I broke comming out of turn 4 to the CHECKERED!!) I just need some advice on maybe driving?? SETUP??? To get this car faster. I have tried to flat foot it and use throttle controll and it seems neither has worked. I have went into the corners hard and tried to roll in. This car is very fast on a tacky track.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!

As close as you are with it Mike I would move the pullbar to the left some if its centered or to the right, right now. Center it and then move 1" to the left. Good to hear its getting better, also with a good car maybe you need more seat time?
