Hey there Girl i really like that air pressure we ran 20lf 25rf 20lr 24rr and could go more and will. But now i have a ? on a little problem i dont like!!!! What do you work on when the car tries to snap back to the right on exit. Another words i think it is getting to much left rear when leaving the corner. It has done this for awhile depending on the track, Entry good get on the gas good in the middle and then on exit it trys to jerk to the right. Is this a shock problem and all are good or is it weight placement or driving style i need to work on. We had a flat in the heat and had to start 28th out of 29 cars and finished 9th. It felt like we won lol Roll out on rear was 87 3/4 rr and 86 5/8 lr 53%left 50.4 rear 49.1 cross why does it want to snap to the right on exit. Thanks guys

Ok wish you could see tape but it comes off good till right before the straight then i might have to fight the wheel and it is costing me time. It comes arond good in corner and then on exit the rearend wants to go left and the front go right. Like the left jus got traction. Is this a shock problem or driver problem or what. I know you have had this happen to you it basically get loose as entering the straight but on tape and driving i cant say that but its how a driver tells you something and how you take it that matters. Entry good car comes around and back on throttle after the apex and then as we leave the corner the car looses traction or something and we have to fight wheel a bit. This is mainly on a tacky track not a dry slick. We are running 50/50 racing shocks on the rear and front. Just know if we could fix this it would be faster!!!!!! I see this every week in our tapes and need to fix it.

I know on our car that if u unload the rr in the corner it wants to snap to the right.
So to fix that u need to keep the rr loaded all the way through the corner.
So we found out that if u go in the corner just fine and then u r off the gas for a split sec the rr unloads and to fix it hit the gas to load the rr????????
make any sence??????

That does make sense. I hate to ride the brakes or even use them if i dont have to but noticed that if i used brakes on the entry and then got on gas it was a little better. The track still had a little moisture in it and was really pretty fast so it wasnt a dry slick. I am just wondering if some shock changes or weight movement might cure this.
