Your front srings seem to be way to stiff.Try a 700# lf and a 750# rf.This will let the front load more on entry.The stiff rf will not let the weight tranfer to that corner.Also try a 175 lr.

hey BROWNSTONE are you willing to trade a 600# 5 1/2in x 9 1/2in TRU_COIL has 1 night of racing on it.I need a 800# spring.I also have a 500#.Tried it on my limited mod. and could'nt keep from spinning out.when i would enter in a corner front would go down to far and off load the rear to much.they say MOD. springs are closer to the ball joint you need to run softer springs i thought that's what i needed that's why i tried a rf600# lf-500# to soft for me.I dont think you will ever go back to 800# & 900# to strong will not let your rear off load that why your tight.thanks

maxwell,
thanks for the offer, but I am gonna hold on to the springs.
I am gonna pick some lighter springs and in the mean time I ahve some lighter ones to try. I have 820 and a 770. But I bet those are not gonna be light enough.
Good luck and thanks again for the offer.

It sounds as if your set up is jacking cross weight into the car under acceleration. This is good on dry slick but it may take a good axle dampner and less initial cross maybe 48% to start. If you add ballast add to the right side frame high or higher. These setups take some a$$ backward thinking to get right but they will work. The theory is the same as the 2 link with the left spring ahead of the axle. Acceleration creates the bite in the left rear so dont get too wild with the the static wedge.

good luck

Another problem you might be having is something in the RF might be rubbing or binding up under suspension travel. Wouldn't matter what set up you have if that is happening. Could be tire rubbing the frame, shock bottoming out, control arm running out of travel, or something else that binds up the suspension. Even too much front brake. Did you check what it does if you enter the corner without using brakes? (Mind you a bit slower than normal might be wise. Just enough to see what the car does with no braking.)
All I know.

We tried swapping our front springs this weekend.Went from a 900 in the lf and a 800 in the rf.Swapped them to a 900 in the rf and 800 in the lf. THE CAR WOULD NOT TURN GOING IN.The stiff rf spring keeps the lr loaded, making the car tight on entry.

Then do what you have to do to MAKE the front end stick. Can't be fast if the car won't go into the corner.
