SAME QUESTION OVER AGAIN. WE ARE SUPER LOOSE OUT OF THE CORNER. HAVE RAISED J-BAR TO ABOUT 7 1/2", WITH LITTLE IMPROVEMENT. TRACK GETS VERY SLICK. WE ARE RUNNING A 225# ON LR AND 175# ON RIGHT WITH 1294 AFCOS. MY QUESTION IS HOW MUCH LIGHTER OF REAR SPRINGS SHOULD WE GO WITH, JUST 25# LESS, OR 50# LESS. NOTHING ELSE REALLY HELPS, SO I'M THINKING LIGHTER SPRINGS AND MAYBE SOFTER SHOCKS? ANY SUGGESTIONS WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.

75/3 LF 76/2 RF
94 LR 93/5RR

200# RR 150# LR
4" LF 2" RF
3" LR 5" RR
10lb left 14lb right
shorty bar at 20 deg.

and he's too tight even though he don't believe me. Hope this helps.

TRY A LITTLE MORE ANGLE IN YOUR LR BAR.

We started taking angle out of our pullbar on dry tracks, & the forward bite got better each time we did it. We also made sure our rearend was square. Then we started adding bite each week, (a little at a time) until the car was starting to get too loose entering, then back it off just a touch.
DW-8, short bar 2-link.
springs: 650 LF, 750 RF, 225 LR, 200 RR
shocks: 30/30 LF, 20/50 RF, 30/30 LR, 20/20 RR
Both trailing arms in top hole, shorty bar, second hole from bottom on pinion plate, & 8" up on chassis.
113lbs. LR bite
59.6% rear
52.2% left
3/4" rear stagger
1.5" front stagger
This seems to work pretty good on our 3/8 semi banked track when it turns dry. Good luck.
