Post Re: Bringing Back the Dead.
Usually issues at the front are solved by adjusting the rear and vice versa.

Your obviously lifting the inside front under power while exiting corners. In this situation you would stifffen the rear springs or add an anti roll bar. Doing this will increase over steer at turn in and power oversteer. How does the car turn into a corner?

It sounds like you like the way it handles as it is. You have a lot of power to put thru the rear I get the feeling stiffening the rear may reduce traction and driveability.
If you haven't checked already, the nylon bushes in the rocker arms and the lower wishbones get jammed by the metal ferrule rusting.

I only have 190 bhp and have resorted to 300lb springs at the front to get traction on the exit of corners.

I have just fitted 300lb springs to the front and they feel better. I may try 300 springs on the rear also and see what it does. I currently have 275's so not a huge increase. I will also slacken the arb a little.
