handling fix front or rear? Woudl you soften the RF spring or soften the RR spring to help a slight push...car is bad fast in the tacky but suffers getting in when the track blows off...

thanks in advance

not on the brakes cause when i got on them the car turned like i expected, but it seemed as if the car would "slide" the front end unless i got on the brakes hard at the center just as i wanted to pick up the throttle....just wants to push the front end a little to cause me to either wait or brake to be able to get back in the throttle...

Make sense?

decrease your rear percentage or try and get some more stagger.

wouldnt use stagger will effect exit too much. sounds like the car is very good, other than a little tight in. assuming you are high rear weight, over 54%, i would run a lighter lf spring and/or lighter compression on the lf shock. the left front changes will not make a big difference anywhere but entry, a softer rr will tighten exit as well as loosening entry. until the car is tight out you could also try adding more crossweight and/or more bite to loosen entry.
