I run a 86 monte,
when I come out of the corners it
wants to four wheel drift up the track.

what causes this or what will fix it?

What tire pressures are you running.When our car gets a bad push thats the first thing we look at

too much low left wt. or even left wt if it r wheel drifts on ENTRY.

remove left side wt and it will stop four wheeling up the track

Dont know how a car could 4 wheel drift on exit unless it pushes and is spinning the rear tires?

Not sure why your tire pressure is higher in the left rear vs the right?Try to run the left front the lowest pressure..say 10 lbs and the left rear higher..14 lbs etc,you could try dropping all the tires a few pounds to see if that helps.

I had the same problem this year on a real dry slick track. I changed my pinion angle and that made a huge difference. The rearend of my car was bottoming out on the body...making the car bind.

Just something to check

Tire pressures sound alittle high.We run the most in RF 12# and as little as 10 #'s in rear.NO BEADLOCKS,I run tubes to allow little air pressure.Other classes with beadlocks are running 10-8#'s

We had trouble like you explained along with tire spin real bad,need to add weight to correct this.

If you have your weight mounted low you may try to move it higher. This will help the car roll over and add bite to the RR.
