Here's what i've got
Larkins z-link,w/rear springs on top of housing.
lf 650 rf750
lr200 rr175
lf link 13deg.up to front
lr link 9deg. up to front
rf &rr links 4deg up to front
long pull bar14deg down
J-bar 1" lower than pinion & 5" higher on left.
% without driver & full of fuel
cross50.1
left52.7
rear58.1
100lb lr bite?

I'm Pretty new to mod's, but this thing seems way tight on late entry. The only way it will turn is to use the brakes hard and really throw it into the turn, then stand on the gas. It feels good when on the gas though. If I let off and it starts to push , there is no way to recover it!!. Our track has no walls and I pushed right off the track twice this weekend.

I'm thinking of swapping my front springs left to rt. & going with 200s across the rear, or 225, 200 . Am I moving the right direction? Will this also make it looser at exit?

yes, not enough reae%. the j-bar the more angle the tighter (more side bite) also the lower the rear roll center the tighter.

I would up the cross also to counter the effect of more rear percent on apex. Lowering the j-bar should tighten apex also.
