ease into the gas, slower is faster on dry slick track, maybe softer rr spring. list all spring rates and tire pressures you run maybe i can help

try running less air in rear on a dry dusty track we run around 15-18# in r.r. and 10-12# in l.r. Also a new set of tires on the rear every 2-4 nights on that type of track really makes a difference.I know this seems expensive but racing is.

Do not add weight low in the rear keep the same weight but move it UP so it will roll over on the RR and plant it to the track That and a softer spring or a softer shock
