with a metric front clip? the springs seem stiff maybe soften them up 50 pounds each to see if it helps and go from ther.

Do these cars still use the Metric lowers, or does it have Nova lowers

Don't know a thing about TND, haven't ever seen one in person, but 3 things that come to mind, how much rake in jbar, how much lr drop do you have and are you running a lr brake floater. In our experience, these can cause what your describing. Good luck.

I have a thrown dirt with the same problem, running same on front and was 225 springs on both sides rear. I changed for this past weekend to 150 and 175 and 600 and 650 on front big mistake if you find anything out let me know to please. lol

soften up on rf. Is it bottoming out because rough track or cushion??? More than likely if track was smooth it wont botttom out. Raise lr lower to 3-5 deg up to chassis with softer rf should help in middle. Josh

best advice i can give you if you plan to continue 2 run a slick track is to drop it off at local junkyard in get a new chassis jmo

Heard That But We Did The Whole Car Over Ourselfs Its Gettin Close But Needed That Little More Lol Nothin About It Is Original Hardly.

Things to check/try:
Left side % = possibly decrease
Cross weight = possibly increase
J-bar angle - increase angle / lower rear roll center
Reverse front springs to softer on the RF.
Good luck.

has a bracket on the underside of the frame horns above lower control arms,cut them of and you can gain right front travel,sometimes it looks like its bottoming out ,but is actually hitting the bracket,but usually not enough to cause a push,but can also cause a push..hope this helps..windy..
