hey guys the track i normally run at is a 27degree really smooth track and its closed up.
the only other track i can run my car at is a 1/2 mile really really rough place.
im not exagerating when i say racing in the corn field would be smoother.
any suggestions on springs/shocks?
thanx for any help in advance

springs on the soft side, 50/50 shocks on the stiff side

Softer springs on the rough track???? Really? I am not doubting you just have always gone stiffer myself. Maybe thats why I suck so bad in the bumps
