need to let me know what the car is doing. I usualy wil make changes on car with track condition and driver inmind. So it may be harder with out being able to se the car run and input from the driver.

Our lil bull ring was so dry dusty that ya couldn't tell who was leading from the pits...the leaders lapped up to 5th place.we were pretty good to lap 20/40(4-5th) then dropped back to 10th...We are running goodyears and we gained 2 inches of stagger and 3.5 pounds...started with @5"...it just really heated the RR the tire up...everybody complains that they really seem to gain stagger..tach only turned 6600..I can't imagine, and it doesn't look/sound like it is spinning the tires .had 70lbs LR bite...We are so very close..wondering about dropping air pressure a pound across rear (maybe just RR)and @4inches of stagger when it is that dry...What about dropping the panhard bar as well??
Congrats again racer

What do you have for psi now? Is the car just lacking fwd bite, or side bite, maybe tight in lose out? Need to know more info onwhat the car is doing and what the driver feels?

Racer..Rears are LR 6lbs...RR 10lbs ...Driver says it handles like a dream..We are just losing forward bite and a bit of side bite later on as it gets really slick...Driver said he was just getting so he could make it exit better with a good driving line when they made him stay down tight when he got lapped.

Tire psi is ok. If you gain stagger then I would try 7psi LR and 9psi RR. If track gets slick or just trying to keep stagger down. Now what do you have on it for shocks? What numbers are they?

Thanks racer,
We are running the standard Bilstein shocks..
208/72...How beneficial would a RR easy-up be.

hard slick track I would try a 208/90 on the left rear stiffer on compresion. Will help turn car in and get a little more side bite.
Then the next step would be to go to a 120/55 on the fronts. These are ez ups will help with fwd bite coming out. I hope this will help.

That depends on your engine combination. I would turn it around 6800 to 7000. So it depends on how good the drivers foot is with with gear. Let me know how you do this week. I'll try to help.
