What makes a chasis 3 wheel excessively? Would rather keep all 4 on the track....

You might have too much lr drop. Pull bar angle too much, too much jbar angle, rear percent too high. Just a few of the things that can cause three wheeling.

too stiff rf spring possibly, too much lr bite, theres a ton of things that could cause that

Redesign the LF to allow the tire to drop farther.

I have heard some people going to a 9" LF shock.

sometimes raising rr upper bar up will help drive the lf back down, usually if its hiking up a bunch its too tight anyways so thats a good solution

I had a car that did the same thing... Found that my l/r shock was to long. took the spacer out of it and it helped, then raised the l/r mount and almost completely stopped it. Found that putting a chain on l/r stopped the hike and fixed it completely. hope this helps

If the only problem is the lifting of the LF wheel, i.e. setup is good and car is fast the believe it or not a 10 lb. weight under the nose panel along the left frame rail will keep that wheel on the ground without changing the way the car handles. If you could run along side of the car you would probably be able to push the corner down with no effort at all. 10 lbs will do it.
