I am new to Racing Midwest mods I have a car that was a Wissota mod. it is a mono leaf car that very few others have in this area. so I am having trouble finding someone to help me learn about it. We raced last night on dry slick track and the car was very loose. My stager was 2.5" in the rear and I ran tire pressure at LR 10, RR13, LF12, RF10. My rear end is set straight across and I had A tires on all except LF (D). Any suggestions would be great

if your lf pressure is right above, thats reducing your cross weight.

and 2.5 stagger is a lot unless your on a tiny quarter mile.

switch front tire pressures put 2 turns in left rear take 2 turns out of left rear. Call pro chassis in luverne mn they are real good with mono setups pro-chassis.net Eric MW Mod 34

try this for starters...set AIR PRESSURE at 10lbs. on left side of car and 12lbs on the right side(passenger side)
STAGGER.....front - 1/2" (RF bigger than LR)
rear - 1"-11/2" (RR bigger)

You might want to change your wheel offsets and try a A ONLY on the RR
Thers a lot more you can do but from reading your post you might want to try this first, and if you dont already have a set you might want to buy a set of scales.

hope this helps

You could set your tire pressures at RF12, RR12, LF10, and LR10, If you are still loose on corner exit you could space out your RF wheel or stiffen your RF spring depending on your shock travel, you could also stiffen you LR spring. Like everyone has said there are many things you could try and they will all work pending on how bad your situation is. Good Luck
