I have to say I agree.
I think Serpent designed the front springs either :-
1- to fit the most common but reasonable ride height or
2- to limit you from converting your 710 into an off-road monster truck.
I guess using rear springs would work. The car must not handle very well at the beginning of the race.
NOOB-SMOKE, use harder shores in a long final, set your car accordingly to compensate for lost traction from the harder shores and don't use more than 8mm ride height - even that is too much already.
If you still can't make it work then it is far better to change tyres mid race by using the best shores for grip than to set-up your car up all wonky and possibly having to use non-optimal shores.
