Try taking some angle out of your pull bar. Just had a car do the same thing, decreasing the pull bar angle kept it on the ground and didn't loose any noticeable bite.

Does it look like this, I hope not. What type of track conditions were you on, if it was tacky it might work real well in the dry-slick, I would move your panhard bar up evenly on both the chassis and rear-end alittle, Also are both your rear links the same lenghts, and how much rear bite are you running might be too much Just my thoughts Also your lr spring seems pretty heavy to me.

I was thinking the same thing about the LR spring. Seems a little high even though its a swing arm. May even try increasing the RR spring.

try moving some weight over to the left (50#?) while keeping everything else the same. adjust to the same bite you have now but your cross will go down. this will take both dynamic and static weight off both right sides.

No it isn't rolled up that hard but it is close. Car scaled out at 56.7 rear lost % due to steal heads our aluim heads will be ready next week. 53.4 left & 51.2 X. Both bottom arms are 16'' c-c. The track we were at was pretty slick alittle tacky at first but feature time you could hear the tires. Again this car was extremely fast and it is a 3 link car springs on the arms. I am going to add about 40 lbs behind our driver seat low. We are going to a different track this weekend short and tight turns. I will keep everything in mind this weekend thanks for the replys.
