Can any one tell me what I could do to improve forward bite? The car is close, top 5 most of the time. I just seem to not be able to get off the corners, the car will hook up about mid straightaway. 59% rear 51%lf side 65lb split. Thanks.

Put some more positive angle in the bars. But be prepared because it will make you looser in the middle.

Pos. angle in both bars? I was told more pos. in top and more neg. in bottom to increase forward bite. Am I doing this wrong? Springs are clamped in front LR and on top RR. 225 LR and 200 RR. Loose off I too need help.

T/10, you may gain more initial bite by increasing the pull bar angle, depending on where it is now.

Wide Open, on a 4-bar, more upward angle in both bars=more bite. On a z-link upward angle in front bar and downward angle in radius rod=more bite (and rear steer). If you loose off, put more angle in left side.
