c21 basically hit the nail on the head. Lower your RF spring rate and add some bite with shims, more air pressure in RF and/or larger tire on RF.

c21 is exactly right, swallow your pride and change the car exactly like he says and I think you will be happy.

Thanks guys,
I won't say that this is THE set-up for this car ...... just the direction I would go.

I realize that ARR was only concerned about the problems on a slick track, but his set-up relies on body roll to tighten it up ... which he wont get as much of on a dry slick track (where he needs it most for this cars set-up). And ... the reversed rear springs look like a band-aid for the too-big front spring split.

no small fixes for this problem .... time to stat over on springs it would seem (refer to previous post)

good luck,

Thanks for all your help, we won are 1st Feature of the year last night. We put the 1000lb. spring back in the LF. Worked great!
