What suspension and spring rates do you run?

Positive rake a lower speeds, neutral or slightly neg at high speeds.

Spring Rates, Wing, AOA of Wing etc etc all play into effect when trying to properly setup a car to be balanced at all speeds possible.

Can you bolt on a wing and be faster? Sure maybe. Can you maximize the impact it can offer? No

Me too. Do you think 8k or 9k would be enough to compensate the aero?

I dunno. Itís going to depend on your setup. I am trying 10kg based on what others are running but may try some different rates down the road.
