Track Spring Rates
So this weekend I decided that my 500/700 spring rates just aren't enough to keep the platform stable through the COTA Esses. I also kinda mangled my brand new home made diffuser!
I saw there was a TT2 elise there with 1000 lb springs in the rear but I didn't get to talk to him a ton as we were both having a series of mechanical issues. So I don't know what his fronts were.
I am a pretty good driver, driving the car near the limit, sliding through high speed corners, but I don't want to get into a situation where only an expert could drive the car fast, so my question.
Is 700/1000 the right spring rate for me? Should I go maybe just one step below this to 650/900? That might be a little safer too as the car will still push slightly. I am using Penske DA shocks and Fred said they are fine with 1000 lb springs.
I have a carbon 2011 rear wing and dual canards + splitter in the front. Not sure what my down force is in lbs, but it is certainly non zero.
