Hey guy's I was wondering if any of you can give me some info or guidence. I run a Mod but I'm building a purestock for a good friend of mine. I need spring sugestions, scaling starter num and any suggestion any of you have on building a top notch purestock. The car must weigh 3100lbs and the driver is 250lbs. OH the frame is a metric monte. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

RF1050-LF950-RR250-LR 350 If you can get 50 percent rear out of a "pure stock" your doing good. allthough depending on what can remove or cut out depends on what the rules allow.hope this helps.

Racer19s thanks for your suggestions, one thing I forgot to mention is the track is slightly banked 4 to 5 deg and it's a small 3/8ths. Is this still a good starting point? What about ride heights? Where do you measure them? Again thanks a million!

I run 1200 rf 1000lf 225 lr and 200rr on 3500
ponud metric works for me, but I dont run any sway bars on dirt. Its a good dtarting point and you can adjust from there depending on what the car does. I also run stock mount afcos all the way around but here blistens are great too. Myself I have liked the afco and have not had a chance to try the blisten but I will one day,

HEY 17 WOULD THOSES SPRINGS WORK ON A 3/8 MILE 4-5 DEGREE BANKED PAVED TRACK? I'M IN THE PROCESS OF CONVERTING FROM DIRT TO ASPHALT. I CURRENTLY HAVE A 900LBS IN LF AND A 1000 LBS RF AND 300LBS ACROSS THE BACK. THE CAR HANDLES WELL ON TACKY TRACK BUT HAS A MID CORNER PUSH ON DRY SLICK. WHAT'S YOUR THOUGHTS?
