Car is way loose gettin in the corner when the track drys out, and i have more front brake bias than rear, heres what i got....springs LR 225, RR 175, RF 1400, LF 1200. shocks LR 6-2, RR 4-4. percentages left 54%, rear 53.5%, cross 49%. bite around 100 pounds, stagger 1 inch in the front, i have ran no stagger in the rear & it helps coming off but i cant tell much difference goin in. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, if ya need any more info just let me know. Thanks

I would either drop RF spring rate to 1300Lb or increase LF spring rate to 1300lb. What shock valving do you run? Or you can increase the compression side of the LF shock to help with enty. A shock change would be easiest and quickest way without rescaling car. IF shock change doesnt fix problem then id do a spring change. Hope that helps.

You could try putting a little more rr spring in it, but that would affect your exit also. Or you could take a little left% out of it and that would tighten you up on entry. Or like the above post change the lf spring and that would only change your entry.

How much does the car weigh? And are your percentages w/ driver and how much fuel? Also how's your braking coming into the corner? Is it heavy braking, maybe your locking your tires? If so then have you tried taking away some rear brake bias? Brake bias might be your easiest fix.

The easiest thing to do is add more offset or 1" spacer to the RF wheel. If that is not enough also take offset from the LF.

stiffer front springs and less split
