Ok, I am a HUGE race fan and am starting out in Street Stocks next year, but I have a question for you Modified guys. At our track, 1/2 mile, I am seeing the left front come up off the track, and even more so with the Late Models. My wife has asked me why some are doing that, and some aren't, and what's causing it. I told her I'd post it on here and that you all could answer it. Thanks a ton!!!

Go to the SEARCH link on the Modified Tech Talk board. It is right below the Post New Topic link. Search for how to 3 wheel, or lifting left front, or something similar to that. This topic has been answered MULTIPLE times on this forum. Good luck!

It's all in the rear suspension. The ones that aren't 3 wheeling at sedalia are most likely leaf spring or swing arm cars.

I may be wrong here but the latemodel guys found a new setup a few years back that they called the "hook". They called it this because it hooked the cars up way more than their previous setups. LOL looks like you got over ruled on what the jet said, outlaw
