On a 3 link I would raise the right side link arm up one hole on the frame, or you could stiffen the left front spring rate.

I had this exact problem. First you need to determine if it is a throttle push. Mine was a throttle push, so I took out some diagonal and it really fixed the problem. You should also check the amount of static lead you have in the rear end. If you have any, take it out. Lead will make the car very tight in the middle. Adjusting the panhard bar will also effect the car in the middle of the corner.

Maybe take a little angle out of the panhard bar.

IF THE CAR IS FINE ON ENTRY AND EXIT, YOUR VERY CLOSE TO THE RIGHT SET-UP, YOU DO NOT WANT TO MAKE ANY MAJOR CHANGES. JUST PUT A LITTLE STAGGER IN IT.

If the car is that close I aggree with a little more stagger but you might also try a split valve shock on the LR with a stiffer rebound than compression like a 4com 6reb

i'd start with the panhard bar, stagger has more effect on entry than exit than on mid corner handling.

i also agree on small changes. stagger will affect mid corner tightness. maybe a little more will fix it. square the rear end or lead with the LR just a little. 1/8 to 1/4 maybe. braking points, throttle pick up points will have an effect also. shocks can have an effect. a tick more compression on the rear, but you can ruin the rest of the turn if not careful. just try ONE at a time till you find what works for YOU!
