Me too just scaled my car today going to try and sort out my suspension issues and make some appearances this year if possible. Scales looked good think I found my issue, so should be a relatively easy fix, but you know how that goes.

I had the shocks looser and the car would ether smoke the tires or shake them hard enough I had to peddle. I talked to a few of the drag radial guys and they said to start tightening the shocks. The tighter I got them the less issues I had.
