Also you might want to check out your air presures. As the race goes on you might be heating up and expanding the tires too much which would cause you to get loose.

How are the track conditions during your feature?

I'd look at the tire pressure also.....the longer you go and especially if you are spinning....the tire pressure is gonna go up.....

------------------
If you can't work em in close & git em in your face with their orange landing gear down, don't bother taking the safety off......

fyel cell is 16 or 18 ( cant remember off hand) fuel cell is centered.

I have also been thinking about tire pressures.
I am running 18lbs. at three corners
and 14 at lf. I am afraid to go any lower.
I was thinking og going up 1 or 2 lbs in
lh rear or adding a some weight to rear center of car.

Do you run dirt or asphalt, how big is the track and what kind of banking.

Put more air pressure in your right front. What class of car is this? If it is an IMCA stock car type I would raise the right front to 20. If it is another type I would go to 22 in the right front. Plus I would run your left side air pressures the same if you are having a problem with the car getting loose. This will get your left front and left rear doing a more close amount of work. I use air pressure to adjust alot of setting on the car. It is just like changing springs but only smaller adjustments.
