    They aren't better than stock on the drag strip.
    V6 springs are preferred because they are softer.

    Did you get an explanation???

    I would think stiffer would reduce weight transfer out of the hole.

    This post confuses me a bit.


    Could you post the explanation on how stiffer would be better?
    Or did you think I had it?

    They were most likely talking in terms of handling.

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    i guess if he asked "what's better at the track" well...a track could be consider a continous road-course/track so i could see why someone would tell him stiffer is preffered...if he said "what's better at the strip" and they said "stiffer" then they should be shot and hung by their ankles

    I understand that logic, but remember those cars are designed for nothing but getting down the track. The frame is built for drag.

    Softer = better weight transfer on a street car.
