    Same as the old days. Loose in, tight off.

    So if itís tight in then you need bump the 3inch up to more load help turn in and if itís loose take it away

    That's correct. I see that adjustment more for off corner adjustment though and your description just being a side affect of the exit adjustment.

    Compression on lr shocks, if car is losing lr height as you attempt to turn.

    You treat it as exit (think I remember your in a crate), so you reduce the load to make the RF travel father and dewedge the car to loosen it (assuming you can change the RF only and not make an adjustment elsewhere)

    Would this work same for cars that are on single spring rule and canít run bumps stacks or any of that as well

    Load (or if you want to look it at as travel) doesn't know if it's a single spring, stack, bump, or an air bag for that matter.

    If you lessen the load at any point of the RF travel, you will travel farther and dewedge the car when it's at that load on the track.

    Doesnít more travel on RF help get bar angle in LR for exit traction?

    Load gets the car off the corner. Bar angle only lifts the car until the chain is tight. Once your chain is tight, your bar angle means nothing as bar forces and chain forces cancel each other out.

    Would you benefit more say taken the 350 outa rf and putting like a 475 500 in there but lowering the ride height but still ending up with same load number at 3.5 to 4 inches travel or does the softer loaded more 350 spring have better feel or transition goin down

    Now you start messing with body heights while sitting in the pits.
    Also, load numbers above and below the load numbers are different. So, if your car isn't at the load center to center, the loads are not the same.

    If you are using someone else's setup, need to follow their exact setup if expecting similar results

    At that point, you are just going back to an old school setup. Car can drive fine, but your spoiler is lower while you race around the track.

    So then with that. Maybe the stiffer spring but lower starting ride height would be best then but still end up at same load at the 4 inch mark
