track size is a 1/3-3/8 high bank. Run a 650 9inch and a 355 motor. bilsten stock shocks on all corners and have never been on scales. Have to run IMCA rules

Adjusting your pinion angle will get you foward bite. 7-8 degrees is a start

Personal opinion, gearing may be a bit low, causing you to overpower the track, and constantly spin your tires.

Make sure the rear end is square in the car first align the right side tires , scale the car, work on your springs then the shocks. Record everything you do and keep very good notes. What everybody is telling you is good, but start at the beginning and understand what you are doing Read articles about how to properly set up a dirt car.

Left out one very important part- after you square the rear end set the frame height for your car , then scale the car. Keep the frame heights the same when adjusting the corner weights.
