Compact rear springs for the woods?

Postby mrfuzzyfelts » Mon Nov 03, 2014 3:28 pm

Any ideas on some springs for the rear of the compact for the woods??

Dont want to go coilover on the rear really due to the arms bending!

If the compact handles the same as an E30 you needs as soft a rear spring as you can find. I used std 316 rears. Anything to stiffer will give snap oversteer when drifting thro' sweeping bends. Not good for the confidence.
