Author Topic:   how would this work?
posted March 02, 2003 02:43 AM
i'm brainstoming (scary huh lol)and after talking to one of my modified buddies i kinda came up with this experimental setup.

lf 1100 rf 1100

lr 300 rr 150 or 175

my cars usually are right close to 50% rear and 52-53% left side weight.

my thinking is this setup is goin to get in really good(loose even?) and maybe be tight coming off.i usually use 2.5" stagger in the rear and maybe 1" in the front for heats then go down to 1-1.75 in the rear for the feature.
this is on a 5/8 barely banked track that has a tendency to be dry.

if yall have any input i'd really appreciate it.

on my first car i had the stock deisle springs up front and it bounced like a basket ball on entry so i put a regular v8 spring on the left and it didn't do it any more. on all the cars we have out of our shop we run no less then 200# split on the front and no more than 50# on the rears

75x thats what i was thinking too about the buddy who used to run sreet stock even went as far as swapping the front springs 1100 lf and 900 rf with the big split in the rear and won a crapload of races at two different tracks.maybe its just whatever fits your style?
