Car has a slight push all the way around the track, seems to get worse if I have run lower on the track, and a little better up high. I'm running little less than 1/2" stagger on a 1/3 mile track with tight turns. Do need more stagger or less cross. Thanks

I'd try the less cross first. We run 54% cross which sounds high. Most run 49% to 50%.

Put more stagger in it and just run it.

Dont put more stagger in it and run it that wouldnt be very smart
You have to remember that stagger affects all four corners of the car first thing you need to do is do one thing at a time other wise you will never know what worked or didnt work.
If the car is pushing all around the track sounds to me like you have way to much left rear weight (thus to much left rear bite)

One more thing is to see if there is a bind in the car somewhere if there is not then i would change your right front spring either by cutting it or changing rates.

I would like to know what offsets are on your car now and what spring rates that you have and what car you are running and what tires
Let me know this and i can help you out
