track went very dry early. Had 53% rear 49.1% cross and was unable do to lack of tires to get the 5 1/2 inches of stagger out of the rear tires. I would like to know seeing how our track will be dry-slick from now till December I want to increase cross increase rear and eliminate stagger. The car was fine going in and had a little trouble turning but I could not touch the throttle coming off the corner without hazing the tires and getting sideways.

Sounds like you need less stagger and more rear weight ,and don't worry your rear weight should help turn the car.

First of all, if you decrease your stagger, you are going to increase your cross, so you may be able to take care of those 2 problems simultaneously. To remedy the rear weight, add lead to desired taste.
