We are running a 75 Camaro factory stock on a 3/8 mile banked track and are looking for help on the spring rates to run. The car is ~3300lbs. The front springs are coils and have leafs in the rear. Any help with spring rates would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

we ran an 81 and ran 1100 rf, 900 lf, 200 rr leaf and 250 lr leaf. ran a 90 inch tire on rr and other three 88 inchers, with carrera II Stock location shocks with a extra heavy 50/50 valving on rf and the other three medium/heavy 50/50 valving. Then just work with the air pressure. 8.5 rr and 10 lr and 8 rf and 11 lf good luck remenber the tires heat up and gain more air

We run Hoosier asphalt take offs. 15 inch wheels 10" wide. We ran a '73 mustang in this class last year and ran 2 and 3 inch offsets (car was pretty loose up in the groove, worked good down low). The local performance shop told us that most people at our track were using 3 and 4 inch offsets. Any recomendations?

Thanks.
