pulls right

#1 Post by drag 57x2 » Mon Jun 24, 2013 7:09 pm

my 57 chev drag car launches strait as a arrow with 07 compound tried 05 compound it started to pull right on launch . Would softer slicks change suspension settings ? Best time 6.00 1/8 1.32 60 .113.97 m.p.h. When weather cond.right will hold wheels up for 60' or so. Any ideas on this problem ?

New tires - did you check roll out? If not you might want to. That would be the 1st thing I'd look at if nothing else has changed.

I'm sure you can patch it by preloading / adding weight to the side it's pulling to. I think I'd be tempted to get some fresh tires for it, sounds to me like they are getting old
