It seems the guys around here are raising their motors and moving them to the right, and running soft rf springs, to get the cars to roll over on the rr. It sounds like a crutch to me...how can the lr work in this application...seems like there should be some way to make the car turn better and use both rear tires...am I missing something or is this the best way? thanks...

My thoughts, if you can get the car to roll over on the RF more, and quicker, thats more and quicker the LR can get under the car.

Once you got the LR up under the car from the RF being buried in the track, and hit the accelerator it should apply more load to the LR on corner exit.

Sounds like it would be hard to keep in in time. You would have to make sure the cars is turned enough to make it out of the corner before apply the gas. Otherwise it would seem like it would push big time.

I keep my motor more to the middle & Left of the chassis. I have tried about everything. More to the middle and also I am able to raise it up or down if I need to get more roll. I also run a pretty heavy spring on rt front. It is a metric car I run between a 900 to 1100 on rf. Car has plenty of roll. It also has alot to do with your suspension set-up as well on your overall body roll.
