I have these rates in my metric LF1000 RF1500 LR200 RR200. I run a 3/8 mile med bank dirt track. Track damp to dry slick.

Has anyone used this combination?
How has it worked?
What changes should I make?

THANKS

I have the same question about spring rates on a metric body weighing 3400lbs. I will just post here instead of starting a new topic. I am racing on a 4/10 mile track with 23 degree banking. Would a 1200rf 1000lf 250lr 225rr be a good combination?? This is a new track, so we know nothing about it. Also, we have to run stock shocks (not stock mount racing shocks). So, does that affect how low I can go on the rear?? Also, what height springs would give the proper height?? Thanks.

I didnt know that about the Bilsteins. The rules say nothing about them, so that is a definite possibility for the future (tight budget at the moment). So, would 9.5" on the front and 11" on the rear be high enough??

id try to go atleast 11 tall in front that willput steering straight across. i may be way off here but i went that route. and im thinking maybe youll wanna soften op rr spring say 200 its all up to u you gotta tight budget start out with what u got. but the fronts gonna be very low i think unless you got adjusters or spacers.

Thanks for the info guys. I got a sponsor that might buy me the set of shocks, I know they make a huge difference. Thanks again.
