If I lower my air pressure and the whole car handles better, would this be a sign of too little weight on the right side? I go up in pressure 2 pounds and it wants to skate around. Last night I run them to the limit and the r/f wheel dug in the track, but the rest of the time it handled better. Any ideas? This is a mustang stock chassis btw.

G45 goodyear 13x8 punch 55. 8 pounds left side, 12 pounds right side. 1/2 stagger in front 3/4 rear. Roll out on r/r is 74 1/2. Seems r/f won't hold the car unless it's almost flat. Running 1/4 mile flat dirt.

Scales:650 600
555 499

Springs:750 800
175 175

Left front us coldest on the car but anything to bring heat in it makes the car either too loose or skate around. Rolled tire to the rim on r/f with 10 pounds, BUT handled better. Are my springs too stiff? It rolls over good.

First, is that the only tire you can run? If so, then:
Weights with driver in car I assume?
So is it pushing entry and exit?
Are you on gas first 1/3 of corner?
How much are you feathering throttle, any.
If you set the car with out brake and using the throttle and gently roll the throttle open as traction allows, what will the car do? Spin or hit the wall?
Is this a mustang......leaf car or coil/strut car?
Are those the wheel weights with those tire pressures?
