Have a 3 link with a spring pull bar. Have a 600 lb spring in the pull bar. 200#lr and a 150#rr. Car was a little loose in the heat but not bad. It dried out quite a bit for the feature so I added about 70# rear and raised j-bar 1 inch. Car worked awesome for about 4 laps then loose as heck. What am I doing wrong? Had about 110# lr bite. 3/4 inch stagger across back. About 51.5% cross and 55% rear.

Thanks

I run a 650 lf and a 750 rf. By the looks of the tape from a buddy of mine it doesn't look like the car rolls all that much. If you look down the side of the car the rear tire is in a couple inches in from the front tire. Thanks

Your car may be so tight that it may seem to be loose .
As soon as you pitch it in,it would want to turn you around ,It's going to take some figuring out but that's my two cents worth.

BETTER CHECK LEED ON THE REAR AXLE AND SEE HOW MUCH BITE YOU HAVE ACROSS THE BACK MAY NEED TO POINT THE PINION TO THE BOTTOM OF THE TRACK A LITTLE!

if you point the pinion more towards the ground you will get more bite???

Went with a shorty and car was fast. Man did that ever make the difference. It could have been just a little better but at least it was progress.
