    What are the bar angles? Sounds like you have too much RU bar angle and not enough LU bar angle. Do you have limiting chains on both sides?

    Chain it down on rr. Start with about 1/2" of ride height being tight.
    Tighten to 0 as track slicks off.
    Should tighten considerably middle-off
    I think there should be lifeguards in the genepool.

    Chain the RR like what was said above.

    I gather this is not an IMCA car. I wouldn't mount it to the birdcage. It can create binding by not allowing the cage to move freely

    no its outlaw we run any tire soft med spiolers wat ever we want i think when the cage is rotation its rolled over off the chain aint it

    When it's rolled over, yes, depending on how much slack there is. If the chain isn't centered when that side is lifting, it can pull against or into the spring. The bars are trying to push the chassis up so the chain will try to pull against it. Just pay close attention to where the mount would be under acceleration

    The farther away from the axle tube, the more the age rotates. The degrees will be the same, but the distance is greater. If you are going to mount it to the birdcage, try to get it as close to the tube as you can

    I would lower the RRU one hole. What length bars C-T-C are you running?

    Also Check the RR shock. It may be dead/bad. We had a pro shock that gave up one night on a fast hammer down track and it started climbing the rr and hopping as well.

    Also that chain deal on the RR is ok on smooth tracks if it gets rough hold onto your fillings.

    If you are still at 19 on the upper you could stand to lose a coupe more degrees. What is the rr lower at?

    And what is the LRU upper/lower at? Just because its 46 at drop doesn't mean you have the correct starting angle. you may just have more drop than others to get to that but you are saying the car doesn't hike so that number is some what of a moot point.

    I run a standard bolt together clamp ring, with 2 ears on it for a double shear for the chain to bolt up.
