How many of you guys run with rear spring rates under 200 lbs. on the rear. At my track, alot of the fast runners are running with 175-200 left rear and 150-175 right rear.(Metric frames)

What you guys think?

We run a Metric car on a 1/3 20deg bank clay track. 175/150 lr & 125/100 r/r. Everyone thinks it's nuts and the spring manufacturer tried to talk me out of buying them. the car weighs 3000 lbs. I do have to replace them every 12 to 15 nights, but the used ones are hidden by the trophies, so it's worth it to me.
