I have a tight condition from the middle of the corner off. The condition is worse the tackier the track is. If I can stay in the gas, it is fine, but when someone slides up on me and I have to let out of it, it pushes. I am running the rear end straight up, just wondering if I trail the right rear a little if it will help this condition. I am new to the 4 bar/ Z link setup. I do not know all of the angles right now, just wondering if adding some rear steer will help take care of the condition.

Car sets into corner good. Not wanting to know anyones setup, just wanting to know if this could be a good adjustment. It would be an easy change to make as the track dries out.

To help your tight in the middle of the corner problem:
-Increase your stagger.
-Decrease your rear weight(less of a fuel load)
-Decrease your right front spring rate.

Trailing your RR would help if thats what you are wanting to do.

Thank you, just looking for some ideas. Like I said, I am new to the 4Bar/Zlink.

If you are are running a 4 bar on left and z link on right, you may want to try raising the lower bar on the rr up one notch on the frame. This will put a little more roll steer in the car. this is something I tried and really liked, but this may not suit everyone. Just a suggestion.
