What are your percentages? Are you using any lead on your car? What kind of track are you running? High banked? Dirt or clay?

60-80 is on the high side.I went to 45-55 on my 2000 Harris and it was much better,also hung 35 pound chunk of lead on right rear,it was unbelivable how much better the car was.Try it and let us know.

Dude,,Is that120# the split? If it is thats a problem.Try closer to a 50 lb. split.Putting lead on the left side of your car will tend to make it loose going in.I even ran a 25lb. bar in the right rear window,,That helped until I lessened the splint to 35lbs.Then I took it out.

Just a thought, are you sure you are having a problem with side bite or could you be possibly be lacking forward bite??? This is a confusing situation where I have seen many drivers confuse lack of side bite with lack of forward bite. After you enter the corner and as the car is drifting in, when you apply the throttle, does the car go forward or continue to drift??? I'm sure Jammin can add some of his knowledge to helping you diagnoss the difference if you can give a detailed description as to what is happening as the car enters the turn and goes around.

You might try running 25# of RR for dry slick. Also a short panhard bar with angle in it. Some guys where I race have bars that are only 10" long at the most, mounted on the left side.
