My question to all is, why do we only run a 100# or so front spring split? IOW, LF is 800# spring, and RF is a 900# (an example). Why not 200# or more difference (ie: 500# LF, 900# RF)? Why do we want to keep the spring differnce close in proxemity?

what would happen if you ran the same springs across the front? also many people who run on flat or very low banked tracks may run a stiffer lf than rf

We run a #100 heavier spring on the LF of our 95 GRT mod and it works really well.

How much heavier is the left front supposed to be over the right front. I mean on the scales and what changes does it seem to make going heavier or lighter.

i've been running a 50lb heavier spring on my lf than the rf adn it's been great. keep an open mind and give it a try. the cup cars run a HUGE split on the fronts on some tracks (lf stiff)

if you are running a lot of lr (over 200#) the softer rf helps the car turn. try this less than 100# and it can make them really loose.
