I went from a 175 LR to a 250 and it made a severe push turn it a loose condition off the turn.

try going to a 1150 on the rf and put some more stsgger on the front. if you can change offsets too that might help by putting a big offset wheel on the rf

yes sticking it out further will help and like ac said it will add cross weight to that corner with a taller tire i run 2in min stager on the front up to 4 inches max and run even up to 2 inches on the rears i tried 3 inches on the rear last week and blew what could have been my first feature win because it made me way loose and the rear end just went right out from under me in the first turn. i'll give you fair warning if you are going to buy a new wheel make sure they state if the are talking about back space or offset you will want a 2 in back space or a 4 inch offset it just depends on who you buy it from it's the same thing tho

I went from 1125 on the RF to a 1200 and it helped the loose-off a ton. I had to give up a little at the other end of the track, but stiffening the RF definetly helped. Next, I'm bumping the LF up from 900 to 1000 to see what that does.

Well I run a lf 1000 lr 250 rf 1200 rr 200. I run 255/70/15 all the way around the car, on the left rear i run a 2" offset wheel. My car has never been scaled of anything I dont know my cross weight but my car runs awful good at both tracks i run. Oh yeah I also use the heaviest stock shocks I COULD find... I'd try a new set of heavier springs. Midwest motorsports where I get my front springs there $60.00 a pieace....

Hey Sonewall,
you have 46.5% rear, what if you had more rear weight? Like 50-52%, then you could steer the car with the throttle/brake and there wouldn't be much of a push left to deal with.
All your weight up front is pushing out/up, which is why you are turning left all the time.
Just my opinion.
