Have a DW-9 has 650lf, 750rf, 225lr, 200rr springs. Lr upper is 15 deg lower is 0 deg. RR z-link bars are level, top and bottom. LR spring is on birdcage behind and rr is on birdcage in front. Car is fast everywhere but coming off corners it has a throttle push, cant keep it in middle of track. And im carrying lf off the ground 3/4 of the track. Car was getting really upset going into corners do to holes in corners, rearend was bottoming out on underslung on rr. Any suggestions on how to fix problem of coming off corners and what to do when track is rough would be appreciated. Thanks

A couple of things to try:

-reduce your LR upper bar angle
-decrease LR bite. You didn't say how much LR weight you have in but keep it close to 100# or less.
-soften LR spring
-increase LS weight
-maybe take some angle out of your pull bar

PUT AS MUCH ANGLE IN THE Z BARS AS YOU CAN, BUT KEEP THEM AT THE SAME ANGLES.

to loosen the car off, put some down angle in the rear z bar or soften the RF spring to 700. Can also try trailing the RR a little if it wont turn throught the middle.
