I have a metric chassis With a three link set up. Spring loaded pull bar at 18 degrees down hill , j-bar with about 4" of rake, trailing arms at about 5 degrees (or so) up hill. Springs are 1200 rf, 100lf, 250's across the back. Shocks are lf 95,rf 96 and rears 94's. The ride heights on the car are almost the same on all four corners. I havent had access to scales which i know would help but what do u do ? The car rolls over very well into the corners and im ok on entry. When the track is heavy i get around excellent. I can do this with 3" of stagger but no way could i use that much during the feature because of the dry slick track conditions. When feature time comes i take alot of the stagger out which helps. Im good going in but cant seem to get the car to pull me out of the corner and get down the straight away. So could wedge help this ? I need to know how many rounds to put in or take out at the corners to start with if it will help ? Or am i way off base ? thanks for any input.

remember it is like a bar you wedge yourself in and stagger out..

racer17j,

yes its pulling me out of the corners and continuing down the straights is the problem. big forward is the thing i need to fix. people in the stands can see the tires are spinning more than they should. i seem to loose more ground behind the pack as the race goes on.
