AE92 Race Spring rates

Postby Linesy » Thu Nov 08, 2018 11:51 am

I am setting up an AE92 for Circuit Racing.
It is currently fitted with a Whiteline rear Sway bar (16mm??), BC Reds with 8KG/mm front springs and 4KG/mm rears.
Poly bushes in the front arms and RCA's.

The car has had one track outing in very mixed conditions making good analysis difficult.

I'm keen to learn where most people land with Spring rates etc and what their real world experience has been.
I'm experiencing Understeer in most corners, so suspect a rear rate increase is on the cards.

Any experiences out there?

Thanks

No experience with that platform, but ae86 coilover kits (likely aimed at drift...) are 8kg front 6kg rear. I'm going to be 6kg front 3.5kg rear in my AE70, but that isn't a track car.

Do you have adjustable dampening?

I'd do a bit of googling too as there are many forums where spring rate is discussed, as well as sway bar sizes etc. No links as i've only been researching my AE70 platform, but have learned a lot though reading threads on car setups. 8kg and 4kg does seem a bit unbalanced.
