I am running a Midwest Mod, (For the fist time ever) and the car does really good when the track is tacky, but after a the track has been raced on a few times, (Dry Slick) the car will push right up to the wall. I have to slow down way to much. What can I do to get some grip in the turns IE. Tire PSI, Shocks, Springs (Its a McDonald Chassis with a Zlink). Thank you.

sure you aint driving in too hard on the slick and causing it to slide up to the wall? Normally the opposite is true, car pushes on tacky and is loose on dry not pushes on dry and good on tacky..................

also is it pushing on entry or exit?

2ND2NONE has a great point. What did you change from the heat to the feature?

Changed The Tire PSI (Lowered it), No I tried everything, while driving, Slowing down, ajusting the breakes, etc, coming out of the turn in all 4 wheels would just slide right up to the wall and I would have to slow way down.... and get passed.

what do you have for shocks?? try a 5/3 lf, 6/2 on rf, 3/5 on lr, and a 4 or 4/3 on rr. also try less cross weight, a little more stagger ( no more than 1 in up front) maybe a little less camber and caster on the right front. what are your ride heights????

I have one of these cars. If you set up the car like Jay tells you to it will work on any track and any condition.These cars are also set up for big motors.I would say that the lower power of your midwest mod motor will keep the car on the tight side.When the car is setup properly, about the only thing to adjust is your panhard on the rearend side.These cars work very well on slick tracks.
