I am running on a 3/8 high banked track with huge holes in turns 3 and 4 and smaller holes in 1 and 2. I have a 79 monte carlo and it is fast but i can't get it to stop bouncing once i hit the holes. The top three are running on the bottom but i don't have enough traction to run with them, early in the night i can run up high and i am fast, but by the feature the holes have moved from the middle to the top. My springs are 1000rf 900lf 250lr 250rr and afco street stock shocks i dont remember numbers but they are suppose to be for dry slick. Scale numbers are lf 1081 rf735 lr 841 rr811. I also still have sway bars on the front and back. Will more weight in the LR help me stick to the bottom of the track? Please help guys i am a former 4 cylinder hornet class driver.....gotta start somewhere hahahaha

I agree with racer17j. You need to have more split in the front end. I also run without sway bars. And by changing the springs to his suggestions you mite find out you can hook up better on the bottom also.

Ease a little pressure from those tires.

Don't use stock street shocks if you are. I am assuming you have racing shocks. The street shocks are meant to soften the ride on a street car not a race car.
