We have a 04 hoffman that we are a little loose coming out of the corners. Running the lr (225#) clamped in front and the rr (225#) on top of the rear end. We have tried running a z link on the rr with the lr floated and seemed always to be loose coming out also. The way we have it now 4bar/4bar is awesome for heats, but we are getting beat coming out of the corners in the feature.

Any help would be great. rf 700, lf 650, rr 225 on top, lr 225 clamped in front. Running lr bottom bar about 5 degrees up and the top bar about 17-20 degrees. RR lower bar is about 5 degrees with the top bar about 15. Running the newer Harris spring bar at about 15 degrees. We have about 110# of left rear bite with about 60% rear. Running a jbar nine inches up in the second hole from the bottom on the pinion.

Thank you

Level both lower bars out if still loose off the corner go to a 200 on rr

I had 04 Hoffman last year are you sure you are not to tight getting in and slinging the car to get it to turn then it feels loose off? If your lr spring is clamp in front it should be tight coming off I would think. I never run clamped up always on bird cage on both sides. I also think Jbar is to high on the frame. 200lb spring on rr would help loosen the car coming in. Just my opinion.

I really don't think we're to tight going in. It just doesn't seem to get any bite comig off the corner. For some reason we can never get a car to tight for this driver.
