We currently have about 16* of angle in our pull bar on our new car. Afco 3 way, with yellow biscuits, 1075 spring w/ 1/2 inch preload, 3/4 gap before hitting bisquits. The car keeps momentum up through the corner really well, but when we go to get back on the gas coming out it takes abit before it hooks up. Would adding more angle to the pull bar help with this? We run on 1/4 and 3/8 mile tracks usually.

Back off Biscuits first. Then try more angle. Or get a shaw 700-2000 spring and take out the biscuits alltogether

More angle = more intial bite fades quicker
Less angle = less intial bite but holds on longer.
We run a momentum 1/4 track with 20* of angle and wish I could get more.

Get on rightfootperformance.com. An u can figure out I'm learning with it to but one thing for sure is. 1075 spring or whatever u run plus the two yellow biscuits at 1 inch of spring travel it adds up to be more like your running a 3000 pound spring. Half inch off movement on yellow biscuits equal out to be alot not saying I'm right but I myself am going to shoot softer than purple I will let u no my results later.

im thinking of just getting rid of the bushings all together, and going to a 700-2000 shaw progressive spring. Sounds MUCH easier to tune.
