lf weight=532
rf weight=543
lr weight=730
rr weight = 622

Wheels...sorry....the setup sounds like it will work ok on a dry slick track, you probably need to play with spring rates and shock valvings for the heats, they seem like they are a little heavy and will keep the car from rolling over in the heats like you need. The hold down on the left rear is a prime example along with the 94 on the right rear...I would try a 93 on both in the heat and see what it does for you.

I am wondering, what do you think the degree of banking is on the track you run. I was looking at your setup, and think it could work on our car, if the track is similar enough. Our track is about 12 degrees. Also, what tire pressure do you run, and are they Hoosiers? Thanks!
