on the heavy track can you start turning the car before the corner entry??? or does it just push, without lifting... if you can get the car to start to turn going in , then keep your foot in it until your right at the entrance of the corner and lift slightly and let the car roll and then get right back into the gas

Without seeing the rest of your setup I'd say the 1000# in the LF is what is hurting you on the heavy track. As you remove cross the car will tighten on entry and loosen on exit. Since the problem could be on the LF it will mainly affect your entry as the LF is doing very little work on exit. Try running a 900# up there on the heavy tracks and that should help to correct your problem.

ya, It would help to know if it is tight going in when you let off the gas, or when you get back in to it. You have to think of the 3 W's WHAT, WHERE, WHEN.
What did the car do, Where did it do it, and When did it do it. your missing the when part

oops lf is 850 rf is 1000
if you really stand on the gas hard it will turn but if your in traffic you have a problem have tried more rear brake like stabbing going in turn make it tail out it does help some
whould a longer pan hard bar help mounted in reverse say mounted to the frame on the right and to the rear end on the left I have seen this done before
do I have too much spring in the front?

Just take a couple rounds out of the left rear weight jack or slider... start from there, but you shouldn't be stabbing the gas down the straight the car should start to make an arc before corner entry and then it'll slam into the corner
