how would i stop the car from rolling on the right rear so bad? it has great forward bite for slick but pushes in middle and overheats right front and fades. car in real fast for 4 laps then starts to lose grip on right front. should i stiffen both rears until it turns better then try gaining forward bite in other ways? or can i leave it soft and find another way to get it turning in the middle?

What are you running for springs? Corner weights and weight placement would be helpfull as well as trailing arm an panhard bar angles.

Tire stagger also would help but need to know what you are running. That way the car could come to you instead of fading. Same preasure on both right and left rears will help or a 2 inch stagger will nelp. You will have to run different things and see what you like but before buying alot of stuff work with stagger first then air preasure then go to springs to fine tune the car.
