I am looking for opinions on this.tonight I was helping a friend scale his mod.He has had what he says is a push comming off.I noticed that the rollbar comming down behind the driver was polished like chrome from contact with the left rear tire,he says:"Oh yeah it's always like that"Now I feel that much friction HAS to have an effect on the way the car handles ie.tire pulls that corner down taking bite off the right or tire pulling it's self up taking bite off the left or a little of both.Any opinions? THANKS

I would work that area first, chassie may not be tranfering weight to the right side,
push off is usually too much lr bite.

check the wheelbase on the left side. even with alot of chassis hike the LR tire should not come in contact with the tin or rollcage.

push on exit is too much LR or too much angle in bars.

Check his bar lengths with what the Mfg reccomends for the car, they may be to short and causing the rub or over indexing and causing it. They also may be at to much of an angle if the ride heights are to high.
