on the slick, i run about 50/50 front to back, little more back on tacky/heavy......lately when i'm trying to crank more front into as i'm racing i get an immediate entry push when i squeeze the brake...crank it back the other way and it goes away and i'm ok...i've bled the brakes but it did it again the other night..cranked a little more front in to get in straighter, it went straight, straight for the wall...anybody encounter this...

I wouldn't put your brakes past half and half ever... If you want to slow the car down getting in you'll have to learn to keep the car settled with rear brake...

I had the same problem last year...I adjusted it a turn or two to the front and i did the exact thing leading a feature. i run all the brake to the rear that I possibly can now... you learn to keep the car straight with rear brakes after time...

what kind of car u racing?
If ur on clamped brakes and floated links then try this,it keeps the car up and steered to the left.
On ours the more front u put in her the better it is getting in, even in the tacky stuff.never have any problems with it pushing
