Way back, I did a lot of residuals analysis on data I generated in my experiments. If I saw any pattern in the residuals, such as you have, I tried another type of transformation to normalize the data. What you are shooting for is a random distribution of the residuals. Whatever transformation that gives you that result is what you are looking for. I would probably try a natural log transformation e to the x.

Hope this helps. I had the help of a professor of statistics when I was doing this, using SAS for my data analysis in the 80's.

Thanks Randy. While researching for an answer I stumbled across a "Box-Cox Power Transform" method. It seemed to do the trick in straightening out my residual normal plot once I, by trial and error, got to the right "lambda" value for the transform
