ARe you sure you have the bar angles listed correct? Or is it 20-25 on the LR and 15-20 on the RR?

WE'VE BEEN TALKIN TO STEVE THE WHOLE TIME, THATS WHERE WE ARE NOW,AFTER ALL OF HIS HELP. YEAH I STATED THE BAR ANGLES RIGHT,I CANT SEEM TO HOOK THE RIGHT SIDE UP THATS WHY WE SPLIT THE LEFT AND RIGHT SIDE BARS SO FAR.THE RR LOWER IS ACTUALLY DOWN, NOT UP. HAVING TWO 225'S CAME FROM STEVE,SO DID THE 5*DOWN ON THE RR LOWER. CAR WAS BAD-BAD FAST THE LAST 5 LAPS OF THE RACE,BUT WAS JUST O.K. THE FIRST HALF OF THE RACE.

It sounds like you aren't too far off. I'd leave the car as it sets and raise your air pressures to get the tires to come in a little sooner... You can also raise your J-Bar about 1 inch on each end until the push is out of the car...

is your left% with the driver or without? That would be pretty high unless it is with driver in the car. 52% would be more common without the driver.

Where is your fuel cell located more to the left or right?

THE J-BAR HAS ABOUT 7 INCHES OF RAKE IN IT,AND IT'S ABOUT AN INCH BELOW THE PINION. ALL THE ANGLES AND %'S I POSTED EARLIER WERE WITH THE DRIVER IN THE CAR. I HAVE THEM WITHOUT, BUT THEY ARE WROTE DOWN AT HOME. I'LL LOOK AT THEM TONITE AND POST AGAIN IF THEY ARE ANY DIFFERENT THAN WHAT I THINK THEY WERE.
