On page 102 of the March edition it says that the
stock spring rates are 106 lbs in front and 239 lb
in the rear, and that you installed Eibach springs
with a spring rate of 274/342 front and 116 lbs rear which is not only too soft for serious
autocross, it's also backwards. The rear rate
on an E30 should be higher than the fronts,
not lower. I can't see how the car can handle
well with the rates being so far out of whack,
much less placing well at an autocross. What
