Jammin I have moved the pull bar to the center of the rear tracking width and the car was allot smoother. changed from the 1050 spring to the progressive and it seemed to be a life time before I felt the action of the pull bar and ended up spinning the rears quicker. My deduction is the softer spring lost me fwd bite so what do you think about putting in the 1200. What do you think this will do?

If you go harder on the spring, it will pull a little more on the chassis and transfer a little more weight, but you will loose that initial sponge on the tire patch if you go harder. Are you sure the track conditions didnt change on you?

Jammin that was fast but NO the track was DRY!! and the only way I was passing was to ride the RR on the cushion and about 3" from the wall on the straights but we passed allot of cars. just want to get the transfer quicker and thought this might do it. definately like the 1050 over the prog. I usually do not disc. my brain from my foot.

we found out if you put the pull bar all the way to the left at the hooked to the x of the car it will hook up hard and smooth and thats with a 1200 hundred pound spring and a bilsten 90/10

Well, if your running the left rear spring in front, if you actually soften the spring on the pull bar, it will rotate faster and put Left Rear bite in the car sooner. It won't have to lift the car to get a bite.
