Ok yall i have this problem this is on a imca hobby stock regal frame regal body
I run a 1200 rf spring and 1100 lf and 225 in the rr and 200 left rear Irun the rear spring that way because the car is so tight comming off the corner that it wants to lift the front end and when i stand i on the gas it wants to start pushing Now this is really good for dry slick tracks which about 60% of the time they are dry
Iam wanting to know what i can do to try to free the car up a little and have the car come off the corner a little straighter and still not loose my forward bite

The offsets are 2 inch on the both fronts and straight up on lr and 31/2 on rr with a liuttle spacer i have 1 inch of stagger on the front and rear the lf 200 lbs heavier then the rf and the lr is 60 to 90 lbs heavier then the rr i also run a 1 7/8 sway bar in the front stock bilstein shocks ak 1043 front and ak 1044 rears
Thanks again to all for the help

The car works really good on dry tracks
if i put a 2 inch offset on the rr it loosens the car up too much and iam having trouble getting more rear stagger all that i can get is about 1 inch sometimes i cant get that
the air pressure that i run now is 24 lf 26 lr 35 on rr and 35 rf

If a 2" backspace RR makes the car loose on a Tacky track then .... you are really close, and/or.... you have been spoiled by your tight-on-exit car and you may need a gentler right foot.

try something in between the RR offset that makes you too tight and the offset that makes you too loose.

or try bringing in the LR (bringing in the LR also increases the effectiveness of your rear stagger since the stagger effect is directly proportinal to both relative rear tire circumferences AND track width).
