1/4 mile high banked oval. The handling of the car going through the turns is excellent. As I am coming out of the turns under power, the rear end acts like it once to come around but it is sticking good. I guess it is on the verge of being loose but since it is sticking it is helping keep the car fast. My problem is the transition from coming out of the turns onto the straight away. As I enter the straight, still under power, the rear end snaps back to the left really hard and points the front end to the right which means now I have to get off the gas so I dont hit the wall which now is slowing me down. LOL, seems I have a great setup for the turns now it's just a matter of fixing it for the straight away....weird. Do you guies think it's just a matter of where my weights are located? That is what I am thinking....I just dont know where to add it or take it away from. What do you guies think? Why the snapping back to the left??

Very true when it shoots you right you gained traction with the left side. When we have had to much left weight that has happened to us.
