Bouncing Problems... badddd

We just got done pulling at the southern kentucky fair, and our d max was bouncing like hell on the track... were running new suspension blocks and new traction bars and i *think* the traction bars (home made) might be the cause, not sure though.

Any ideas on how to reduce all the bouncing?

Pump your rear tires up to around 65-70psi and it will stop.

Agreed... this will help. If wore comes to worse have some pulling springs built.

Tire pressrues are key, also watch the sled and track usually seems all the guys go to one side run the other side.
