Need more input on your setup. The reverse spring setup can be fast if you get it tuned in right. Running the reverse spring set-up will make you tighter in and tighter off as compared to running the RF stiffer than the LF (normal spring split). The key with this setup is to run enough static cross so the car is not loose in the apex of the corner. With out knowing anything more about your setup, I would suggest running more stagger in the rear since you are already tight. Post some more info about your car (weight %'s, stagger, etc.) and we'll be able to tell ya more.

I would drop the lr spring down to 225 I think the 275 is a bit much. I would also reverse the front spring set up. Eddie

I was told that if I reversed the fronts the car would be loose going in and in the mid. but tight coming off the turns. also front springs are 12" and rears are 11"
If I cut 1" off the 12s will it make them stiffer or will there be no diff.

swap the fronts for sure...unless your track races clock-wise. That would probably show a big differance. Alot of guys have told me(and wrote) they use around 225 or 250 in the LR.

Heavier lf can work on certain tracks depends on driving style. Alittle less split in the rear

do you fellas run sway bars? if you dont run a swaybar run the heavy spring on the left and if you do, run it on the right

`longracing25 has it pretty close that set up should work great and he is correct get a 1000 for your LF. metric cars are rarely too tight. you didn't say what type of track you race so i can't tell you much more.
