This is my first year in the factory Stock class and the first year for the car I am driving. I have been working on set up, trying to keep the car on the track. I run on a high banked track. I have a friend that set up my car and had put two different spring heights on my car. He put a 14" 250# on the LR and a 11" 200# on the RR. He said that this is the set up for a high banked track. If any one can help answer if this is true, it will help in finishig the set up.

uummmmm... ahhhhhh... wellllll.... errrrr......

Don't think I'd ever do that. Using a 3" taller spring is gonna force the car over onto the right while it's sitting still. Then, when you hit a turn, it's gonna roll even more than it should. So, you'll be killing the right side tire and the left won't be doing much of anything.

Around here, most everyone tries to get the car with a slight lean to the LEFT at standstill. Not preloaded leaning to the right.

man i would hate to see how that sucker sits i take it he told you to put alot of stagger in the rear also to get it to sit straight if your going to run different heights do it in the front and only about 1/2 to 1 in higher. right now you have so much weight on that lr i'm willing to bet it just pushes straight to the top of the track?
