There could be a few solutions to your prob, but some more info could help. The rr is your hardest working tire period & you need to find out why it is. That could just be from being tight in & mabe a spring change could free it up on entry & give you bite coming out. what shocks are you using? How is the car when the track is heavy?

If the car is good when tacky, you could try a 1020 on the rf. It sounds like you just need a small change when the track gets slick. Look for easy things you can do @ the track.

poorboy5792 If you have a extry 4" offset wheel for the L.F.& Another 225/70/15 tire mount it up & see if you can get 1 3/8 - 1 5/8 stagger for the front. Try this it will add crossweight & loosen you in & tighten you off. This will be easy to try & if you get the results that you want then you can make the changes to correct the car as should be.What is happening is the track is looseing bite & you will have to make changes to keep with it.Please post the results.Also if you can post the total weight & each wheel weight. cd2

I would try putting that right front spring in the left front and then put a 1400 in the left front. Stiffer in the front will help you get off the corner and will plant those rear tires coming off. This should also get that right front doing some of the work going through the middle and build some heat there.
