are you sure you don't want to carry the LEFT front. not sure i would want to race someone who lifts right front.

Put a sprint car wing on and take out the lr spring, either that or run clockwise

the cars that i have seen do this, use a RF spring around 1000 and a 125 RR on a link car. not sure what kind of percentages they are using. i will say that out of about 15 cars i have seen do this, only 3 of them were fast. the rest were just a hazard to the other drivers. it does not appear to be a very stable set-up. just my opinion.

I saw a couple that were extremely fast with the left front tire up. They were four bar cars with short bars, the panhard bars were on the left side of the pinion with alot of angle and very short. Also there pull bars were angle to the left. I think one of them had a 225 right rear spring and the other a 250. Thats just what I noticed, I beleive it's done with geometry and not soft springs and ballast.
