cut down the rear stagger some, or just more lr bite. that will free up entry and tighten exit.

anytime i hear someone say they're tight in and loose off i have to wonder if they might be just tight. when you're tight going in, you have to turn the front wheels farther and slow down to get the car to turn. once the front end finally bites the rear end snaps around.

i would suggest that you get away from running stagger on the front of the car.

one other thing......since you have weight jacks on the front, you might try jacking some weight onto the LF.

We had this problem. Changed the LF spring from 900 to 1200. I can just about leave the gas on all the way threw the corner now. Also check your caster/camber. RF -6 degrees and LF +5. Caster RF +6 and LF +2.

Run a 1 or 2 inch deeper offset wheel on the right front to move the tire out. This will tighten the front up and allow the car to drive into the corner.

If you run rear spring shackles pull the right rear spring down one hole in which it will raise the rr of the . On our car one hole equeals 1 percent of cross and is a easy track adjustment. this sould loosen up your car use the shackles as rear weightjacks
