Through out the year I have noticed the rf tire rubbing the frame when at full counter steer. At fist it didn't bother me much but as the year went on I kept loosening the car up until finally the last race it drug the rim on the lower control mount and locked up causing a spin. (running 4th at the time, ****ed me off bad!) The car is a DW8 with a chevelle stub anyone else have this problem or fixed it?

Don't worry about it, they all do it (chevelle clip/pinto spindles)
You might have to space the RF out 1/2 inch if it is dragging, or grind on the lower A mount to smooth it out.

The fix could be as easy as just adjusting your tierods to take a little back steer out of the car. Also do you have the 64-67 or the 68-72 frame?
