My car is to tight on entry. I can't set the car without the brake. Track was heavy/muddy all night. What are the ways of loosening entry with out changing springs? I don't want to tighten exit anynore.

Raise the RR Trailing arm up a hole or two, put a 3" offset on the rr if there is a 4" on there

Move the J-bar up on both sides or take some angle out of it.

If I raise the pullbar up a hole on the frame then shouldn't that loosen entry, tighten middle, and provide traction all the way down the straight?

I'm chasing the tail after 1/2 way down the straight. But I was trying to fix entry first so the speed would be higher down the straight and maybe that would help keep he tires from breaking loose.

get a brake floater for the lr and put it one with some angle in it, like 15 deg to start, uphill to front.
then it will help plant the lr under braking and set the car into the corner looser.

lower your lf spring rate, That will just loosen entry and nothing else.
