Mr. Zombie,
I was helping Chris get a good rubber tire setup for Stockton. The Rayspeed red spring is right on for the front. But you may be running a little too stiff in the rear (Rayspeed white = 17.17 lb/in). You might be better off running a softer rear spring like a rayspeed yellow (14.87) or even the stock Alex racing spring (14.39).

I guess it's for the better...the weather outside is horrible...winter rain storm coming through
Hopefully Saturday I can try to hit the track...

Merry Christmas Everyone!!!!!!
