Car has push in corner

Hello

I have A 1 3/8 front bar & .98 solid rear bar.
The car pushes bad in the center of the corner.

Looking for ideas!!

Also have:
1.10 solid front bar
1.04 tube rear bar

1/2 mile asphalt oval race car.
that's if you didn't already know that.

rear bar?

Hi

But the 1.04 rear bar is lighter?! (Hollow)

Was looking for a stiffer rear bar?

Was thinking about a set on early SC bars??

On the Lemons car, we run the stock SC bars front and rear. Of course that mostly has to do with not being allowed to spend any money on some addco bars. We still have a little understeer that we are trying to get rid of, but we can't spend any real money on some Addco bars, so we are focusing on weight reduction now. As far as the 1.04 bar, just because it is hollow and lighter does not necessarily mean that it is weaker. As easy as it is to swap out the rear bar, it may be worth trying, unless you already know it is a weaker spring.

rear bars

Hi

I already swap for the 1.04* to the .98**
Got better. But still pushes hard.

Was reading on some post that guy's car got loose with bigger rear bars.
I just wanted to recheck my memory.

I am going to try more rear weight. maybe 50 to 100lbs.(50 per side?)
I also need to upgrade my rear brakes. cooking the fronts.

I have a 1 3/8 addco rear bar I'd sell to you fairly cheap; I think it's too stiff for the street. I was keeping it for the future, and an equal size front bar...

yes, the 1 3/8 rear bar should help your problem significantly. Also some RR spring rubbers if rules allow
