I run a 82 monte carlo on a 3/8 oval.  Car weighs 3315, 48.9% rear 55.9% left.  Rf spring 1200, lf 1100, rr 100, lr 125.  It seems like no matter what I do I cannot correct this loose condition. Its loose on entry, middle, and exit. I have tried spring combo after spring combo with only slight improvements.  Any input????  

12 degree banking.  1 in sway bar(also have 1.25in bar I will try next weekend)
tire temps: lf-106  rf-124  lr-148 rr-172 front stagger 2.75in rear 2in. The biggest improvement was running 0 rear stagger but then it pushed a little on the way out of the turn. The rear is a posi(clutches) so its not locked or open right?

U really need stiffer spring stEt off with a 200 rr 250 lr your fronts are good but u need about 50% rear and get your lr 120 lbs heavier than rr on the scales that is 120 lbs bite!

Add accordingly to left for ur driving style also u want 54-56% cross from rf and lr

get that set up and drive it!  We use screw jacks all around to gain our percentages as well!  Don't know about sway ars we get rid of them but I know u can load them as well

we also run this setup at 3/8 med bank track

I am limited to 49% rear and 56% left side according to the rules.  I will give your setup a try if the rain ever stops.  Opening day has been rained out three times already!!  Thanks for the input
