what are you running for stagger? what adjustments can you make ie adding weight ,shims anything like that also can you change offsets last but not least what about air pressure

My opinion is to try the rear springs switched and see what happens the lose off is probably because of the puch goin in. Focus on the first problem and it may solve the rest. hope this helps

We changed the lr shock to a 94 and lf spring to 900. Car is now good off, but still tight in. We put one round in rr,but made the car a bit loose off again, so we are going to take that back out. What next?

Can u run brake bias adjusters? When I can get the car good off and have a slight prob getting in I use the adjuster to fix it. I would try a LITTLE more rear brake. That is if your driver uses the brakes on entry, I know some driver preferr to get the car to turn without useing the brake as a crutch. Just my opinion.

Had the same problem 3 weeks ago I move the right front tire in alittle and helped alot. For the next two races the handled fine until the guard rail jumped out at me last week= bent frame and end of this years racing.

54pitboss Change left rear shock to straight 5. Also add 25-35# of bite to left rear.If this does not loosen you enough going in add more L.R.bite untill car will set going in,as you add loosen going in you will also get tighter off. CD2

54pitboss You can increase your left side weight some to loosen the car going in and this will also tighten you getting off.If you have some weight that you can move try about 30# on the upright bar behind the driver about 12-14" above the not make this change and the above change at the same time might make you too loose in.If you try either one use the straight 5 shock or if you choose not to use either one still change shock.
