Do you have enough shock travel? Could also have a bind in the rear arms do to the wrong geometry between the upper& lower arms.

My opinion your rf spring is weak. Real weak. What is it and how much does the car weigh? Everything on the car works as an X so if the LR has problems check the RF. RR could also be too soft and the RF too. Making the car lean on the hard right and then forward bringing it off the ground.

Will lifting the LR make the car loose in the turn?

Does that track have much banking? Our track is a steep bank. I think the softer RF spring and stiff chassis is allowing the LR to float a little. I had a 900 rf 1000lf 225lr and 175rr in a 3100 lb car with 150 lbs of weight in the left rear corner and 9" shocks on the rear.

Sure is a small looking tire on that lr compared to the lf. What size is it?

It is a 82 inch tire!Plus the rear wheel opening is cut a little oversized which gives the illusion of being smaller.

3.73 in 2nd of a th350
5800-6000 rpm
3/8 high banked
