My car is nearly perfect after it gets turned in, but i have trouble getting it in. Im running a z-link on the swingarm with a 275 lr 250 rr 950 lf 850 rf. I just changed from a j-bar to a long bar behind rear. The panhard bar is almost level. Our track is very dry/slick. Im thinking about softening the rf shock, or adding more uphill angle to the rr lower trailing arm. I sure dont want to upset anything after the car turns in. Any suggestions?

whats your pullbar angle, where is it located on the rearend, whats the spring you have in it
you might want to give it more angle
also take the lr down to 250 to even up the rears and see if that will help out any

If your tight going in, a a softer LF spring will loosen it up or raise the panhard bar a little on both ends.

My car has a progressive spring on the pullbar that is mounted 20 degrees downhill. That is the maximum amount I can run downhill with the bracket arrangement that I have now. Explain to me why lowering the left rear spring rate would loosen me going in. Thanks trip143

A softer Left Front spring will take weight off of the RR which will loosen entry.You will need to rescale after changing springs.

Sorry,I misread your post as LR. That makes sense now. I'll let you know.
