any suggestion on set-up?car is always tight in the middle of turn.we took the 6 link off and went to a 4 link lr.rr we play with 4 link and z-link.spring is always on top of housing.i can put it in front,but never really liked it.some of these cars are bad fast we seem to ok when its heavy but when feature comes we are tight in middle then loose off.i run around 50lbs of lr bite on top of housing.with springs being lr.225 rr.200 lf 750 rf850. anything wrong ?? run 16 to 22 degrees in lr.top bar and 5 + on lr. bottom. is this to agressive? rr bottom is 2 positive with heat 4link at 16 degrees and zlink level for feature.zlink seems to tighten car up real quick.any help would be cool !!....Thanks

The first thing i think i would do is add alot more LR bite, maybe 100lbs. Sounds like its tight in, and getting worse as you go.

Bar angles look ok to me, maybe after you add bite you could adjust the panhard bar to try and free it up in the middle.

GET RID OF THE SHORTY BAR FOR A NIGHT,AND TRY A J-BAR WITH ABOUT 5 INCHES OF RAKE.I'D TRY REDUCING THE L.R. BITE TO GET IT AROUND THE CORNER OTHERWISE.
