I run a 3 link. Right now I have a 650lf and 750RF. If I put in a 800 RF what will it do to this car. I would say it will loosen car up on entry, but what will it do when I pick the throttle up in the center and what will it do to my exit and foward bite?

It will keep the car from laying on the right front too long throgh the middle and then bounces back to the left rear quicker......by the way how has the short bar set up bean working for you ?

The short LR set up has improved foward bite a ton...just have been fighting a entry push the whole time...Made some changes and was a lot better this last weekend...still a little tight on entry..was wondering what the RF spring increase would do to my center and off the corner...Don't want to do anything to take away foward bite...so by your answer it would make me tighter in middle and out with this spring increase? Also thanks for your help earlier. Fernley NV, is having its 2 day show this weekend, do you come to that?

more rf will add dynamic cross, so loosen entry and tighten exit. i would think of trying some lower lf, or brake bar the rr with some angle in it.

I can't remember if you have brake floaters or not. If you do, raising the left side up and lower the right side will loosen it up under braking.
