Running a metric car with nova lowers and pinto spindles on a 3/8 mile high banked track that goes slick at feature time we have
LF-850 Left side-53.5%
RF-950 Cross-51%
LR-300 Rear-60%
RR-250 Left rear bite-117#
Total weight-2627 with driver
LF-75 Left rear swingarm-15 uphill
RF-76 Left back bar-15 uphill
LR-94 Right rear swingarm-7 uphill
RR-94 Right back bar-10 uphill

Shorty bar left side in front of rear second hole from bottom of pinion 3" of rake.

Pullbar is the edge angled down 22 degrees angled slightly from left rear to right front about 36" long.

The Car is z-link both sides was perfect every on the track except a little loose on exit all I want is more forward bite coming off. I want more forward bite but do not want to change the handling any where else. I thought more left rear bite but wanted to see if anyone had any other ideas as this is the first time on a z-link z-link suspension.

How much stagger are you running and you can move the whole pull bar to the left little at a time. You said you was running the edge pullbar this ia a biscit bar right how much movement are you getting

WPP we are running 1.5 inches of stagger and getting 2-2.5 inches of momvement on the bisquit bar. Yes the pull bar is fully ajustable left to right on the front side and on the housing side but we can only change the angle on the front bracket. We talked about that on the way home last night moving it to the left but were not sure what else it might effect and if we should move the whole bar or just the front or back any help is appreciated.

You may try to take a 1/2 inch or one inch of stagger out that should tighten the car up some also you can take the angle out of the right upper control arm to make it level on the right side . Also if you move the pullbar toward the left i would move it small amounts keep the pullbar straight front to rear. All of this should tighten the car off the corner
