What spring rates do you use for your dual (road/race) use car?

I used 150 lb/in front and 120 lb/in rear and spaced the aeons down 20 mm and used a 7/8 inch roll bar when my Elan was truly dual use back in the 80's and early 90's. Now though its road registered and I drive it on the road it is not really dual use and to stiff for comfortable road driving

Your car looks period on this picture. No matter the thickness of the front bar was.
Next year, you 'll have a time to beat.
