ive had a pretty good handling race car but for some reason last two races car was pushing really bad,last race i had the wheels turned all the way to left around the whole corner and still couldnt turn,the front suspention is all tight no broke ball joints weel bearings are good .i think left brake caliper might be sticking a little but would that make my car push could weel stagger or tire pressure matter that much i run all the same size tires but i always have never no problems

What you would do to correct a push on entry is the exact opposite of what you would do to correct a push on exit, so you must have some other problem. like coil binding, shocks gone, mounts busted, something is wrong. Get under there with a microscope

Steve, I had the same problem a couple of weeks ago. It ended up being my shocks were binding up with my spring spacers.

Scoot. Try moving the lower shock holes in towards the center of the car 3/4" drill new holes and weld nuts on top of the a-arm it will eliminate the shock binding problem.
