sounds right i run 900 1200 250 200 on fast half mile light banking. my question is im thinking that on a smaller track with more bank would you need a little less spring on rf? like 1000 i ran the 1/2 miler all season and had a special event at challenger at end of year (fall fest) i think it was 3/8 tighter corners with more bank and i did fair but wasnt impressed with the car it turned plent fine but slid right up track just had probs holding line thinking needed more side bite tire psi was rf14 rr 13 any ideas apprec

i have tried to run less split up front and the car seamed to bounce going in and was very unstable. i too ran a different track this year one nite that was tighter turns and higher bank and had a push going in did two things helped tremendously more stagger in the rear and changed my line with the tighter turn and higher bank it helps to have a looser setup so you can use the bank and launch off the corner. to the point where on a sweeping track you'd be about ready to loop it on the tighter track your pointed right down the shoot already and rolling down the bank helps alot too or atleast it felt that way lol
