moved up a class, and can now weight 3100 pounds, I was weighting 3500, I had plenty of weight to remove and got it down to 3150 my problem is I had to remove all the weight that I had on it. NOw it handle ok but its loose has a goose and the left rear is building no heat. So do I sacrifice weight and put some back over the left rear or what. This is a metric car. I just need some traction

add some left rear on the spring or weight have seen many cars alittle heavier do better than lighter cars.

Put a slightly stiffer spring on the lr. Will help plant that lr and tighten the car up a little.

Or you can shim the spring to make the ride height higher, or more spring on right front or taller tire

Also you can add a little more cross weight to it. Play with your tire pressures, too. Try adding a pound or two to the RR, or taking some out of the LR, or a combination of the two.
