try running a little more front brake on entry, wont free up the rear as easily. unless you are unhappy with your car coming off, then you may need to look into puting some right rear in the car, could you maybe explain a little more whats going on from entry to exit, and trck conditions.

Triing to tighten entry by decreasing cross is a crutch and results in an overworked rr especially if the car is tailed out on entry. That is the reason it feels like it tightens the car because the rear tires are sliding lateraly on entry. If the car is driven in straighter decreasing cross will actually loosen the car. Ideally you should tighten/loosen entry with your shock/spring package to get all 4 tires working on entry. The most active corners on entry is the right front and left rear. In a properly set-up car increasing cross will tighten all aspects of the corner.
