Can someone tell me what would happen with the following on a 3-link set up? If all things stay the same with the other parts of the setup.

1. LR has a 250 pound, RR has a 325 pound spring.

2. LR has 325 pound and RR has the 250.

3. LR has 325 pound and RR has 400

4. LR has 400 and RR has 325.

Thanks.

I'll take a swing at it .If you make a baseline and the car is close with a 250 l/r and a 225r/r and doesn't get on the bars real hard.Smooth driver.
1.tighter on entry,looser middle and exit.high bank hammer down setup
2.Looser entry ,tight on throttle.might work on a paper clip style track
3.Would be loose then tighten up when you hit the wall.
4.Would work good once you got the swing arms on it.

if you are racing on dirt, i do not think any of those spring combos will do what you are looking for, unless your car weighs 4000+ pounds
