A good way to get bite off the corners is to add more angle to your left rear trailing arm or run 13 inch springs in the back and soften them up we run 150 and 175 in the rear with a 2600lbs hobby stock

I agree on softening the rear springs. We run 13's and a lr 225 rr 100, car leans over and bites great on a dry slick track. Car weighs 3100

more angle in the top or bottom or both. doesnt the 13 in springs sit to high. i know about softening the bushings and such, and figured more angle but have talked to people about lengthening the bottom bars to get more angle. Just wondering if anyone has used these.

How much should you shorten the top arms? How much angel should be on the bottom arms?
What rubbers should have the holes drilled in them?

That is an advantage with 13 inch spings is that you can run softer without coil bind plus with taller springs it puts more forward bite in the car.
You will gain a littlke ride height with 205/70/15 i went from 11inch springs and a ride height of 7 3/4 inch on the left rear to 13 inch springs and a ride height of 8 3/4 so all i gained was a inch but added more bite and softer springs
