I was wondering if any of you out there have tried a soft spring setup on a metric car, and how well it worked. I've heard some stories and just wanted to hear who was doing what.

With that soft of a spring I would be thinking he does because that is about the range I was going to try with the swaybar. Eddie

So what would you bump that up to on a 3200# car? 600 and 650? What are you running for a sway bar? and last but not least, what kind of track? I run a moderately banked 1/2 mile... Wide corners...

Soft spring set-up on pavement requires about 58 to 59% cross weight and the biggest sway bar you can find. This set-up will be very competitive in a pavement Late Model running 10" slicks. I thought with so much cross that the RF would be junk after about 50 laps but it ran strong for 100.
