We run a purestock class that will not let us Lock up the rear. No welding or stock Posi either.

I seen a car that looks like it is driving off of the right rear. Is it possible to Modifify the carrier or spyder gears to do this.

Our car and all the other cars spin the left rear.

yes I know I didn't post this in the proper spot.... looking for some expert advice here!

I just can't figure out how this is possible.

Any Ideas?

I read an article a long time ago about adding shims behind the spider gears to make a "poormans posi" or even lock the rear if you add enough shims. I've never tried it though.

i have heard of taking the drivers rear parking brake cable and rigging it so that when the body rolls through the turn it pulls the cable to apply the left rear parking brake. ive been told it works but never had to try it.

Yea I seen people shim them, but they get tight & spin both wheels & easy to catch being modified.

When the car goes through the corner it paddles the left rear....just wondering if there is anyway to get the power to the right rear...
