you are sliding the rear having it that low keep the weight where it is just raise it that way it pushes down on the tire rather than sliding it

loose is fast & on the edge of out of control

hey race it, im having the same problem. not really sure what my wieghts are. but my car at times starts to pick up the left front tires also. if u figure something out lemme know. seems to bite me every race. it does ok for heat race or hot laps.. just the more laps seem to do it in. hopefully we can figure something out, good luck

Just a thought, but if your weights are behind the axle this would will put more side force on the side of the tire too. I would suggest raising as mentioned above and move them forword a bit.

If it's pulling the left front tire, try a slighter stronger RR spring, Less LF spring, more rebound in the LF shock or more comp in the RR shock. You'll be faster if you can get all 4 tires to work instead of 3.

I don't know how heavy your car is but you might think about lowering your left rear spring to a 225. We ran a 250 and it unhooked our left rear too much going in and would not come back on the left rear right.
