What would you suggest forspring rates on a 1/4 med bank dryslick track. The car is 1981 Celica with 22R. I was thinking about LF200 RF225 LR150 RR125. I have not finished building the car yet so weights are unknown.

On my 82 Celica I put 300 rf, 250 lf, 100 rr and 125 lr. The car weighed its minimum 2400 lbs and had about 53% rear weight bias. The car when built weighed 1960 lbs, and after adding my big **** I still had to add over 200 lbs. No sway bars and no stagger on the front tires but I sometimes ran a 235 rr and a 215 lr. I also had very soft old shocks on the rr and a 50/50 race shock on the lr.

Hope that helps some. I won 2 track championships and 2 runner ups with the Toyota. Too bad they cut the class after the end of last year........sigh!
