    Default Chassis setup

    I'm having a little problem setting up the chassis on my blown 32 coupe. At half throttle the acceleration loads the right rear shock as the front end rises (not off the ground) but the weight shifts to the rear. As this happens the body starts to oscillate from side to side. Not sure why. My chassis has a rear sway bar, pan hard bar, and 4 link front and rear. I'm running MT 33x22x15 with 15 lbs. Can anyone point me in the right direction to adjust this out.

    It only happens when to tires hook.

    This.

    The only time I had a problem like that, I found that the pan bar nuts were loose allowing the body to shift side to side. A few turns of the wrench and the problem was fixed. Sounds like yours is something different. Is everything in the rear square with the front wheels? At the track, most pre-load issues cause a car to dart one way or the other on the launch, but not back and forth (side to side) once straight. Like the above poster mentioned, pics of the set up are needed.

    From the vid, just gettin in the car caused alot of body movement. Using coilovers? N are they adjustable? Like everyone else waitin on the pic's. COOL VID though....
