i run a 2900# metric on a steep banked 3/8 clay track in west tennessee. i am looking for some good starting points for springs and shocks. i usually run 54%rear and 53% left. i like to run light springs up front to unload the left rear(i like to run alot of left rear(vs right rear). anyway, if anyone runs a similar setup let me know what you run.

How long have you run that set up and what's it like for you? I run a very high banked (Gap) in East Tenn and run similar rear, but very heavy fronts.

i am building two cars, on to race at 1/4 mile medium banked and one for the high banked. the setup works well for the 1/4 mile. i was just wondering how much i had to increase the spring rates for the high banked track. for the 1/4 mile 800lf, 900rf, and 300lr and 250 rr.
