Sorry, but I don't understand what your car is actually doing. What do you mean it leads the rear similar to a sprint? Is the front end pushing up the racetrack? Does the rear end come loose and try to swap ends? Are you spinning the rear tires?

how much stagger are you running in the rear also air pressure on rr last but not least el hit another good point are you busting the tires loose and the rear end is coming out from under you another thing to look at do you have any lead in the rear end at all?

To much stagger maybe.....To much lead in the right foot could be the problem also....not picking on you just making suggestions....Towman

sounds to me like you may need more sidebite. get that rr to grip off the corners more. shift some of that lr ballast over to the rr.

WHAT SHOCKS ARE YOU RUNNING ON THE CAR?....ARE THEY STOCK MOUNTED TYPE SHOCKS?.....THEY CAN MAKE THE CAR DO FUNKY THINGS!

NO ONE WILL AGREE WITH ME BUT....SWITCH YOUR REAR SPRINGS AND PUT THE HEAVY SPRING ON THE RR...SET YOUR WEDGE AGAIN WITH A SOCKET AND A FLOOR JACK...YOU WANT THE RR TO COME UP ABOUT 1/2 BEFORE THE RIGHT....

THIS WILL PLANT THE RIGHT REAR INTO THE TRACK AND INSTEAD OF BODY ROLL YOU ARE PUSHING THE TIRE INTO THE TRACK TO GIVE YOU MORE SIDE BITE!...IVE WON 2 TRACK CHAMPIONSHIPS WITH THIS SET UP AND 3 OTHER CHAMPIONSHIPS FROM CARS I SET THIS WAY!....THANKS

TELL ME WHAT SHOCKS YOU ARE RUNNING ALL THE WAY AROUND AND I WILL LET YOU KNOW IF YOU CAN GET BETTER.....

NO....I MEAN PUT THE HEAVIER SPRING IN THE RIGHT REAR AND PLACE A SHORT 1" SOCKET IN THE MIDDLE OF A FLOOR JACK...SLIDE THE JACK UNDER THE CENTER OF THE REAR END AND JACK IT UP UNTIL THE LEFT REAR IS JUST OFF OF THE GROUND!....THE RIGHT REAR TIRE SHOULD BE OFF THE GROUND ABOUT 3/8 TO 1/2?........THANKS
