Default Springs set up

I will be racing my ld3 this race season. I have to stock springs. The road course will be on asphalt with vht put down for traction. The track has not been setup yet but we will be racing in a different location. I think the turns will be a little tighter and less speed because of the space the track will be setup.

My question is what spring(soft or hard and front and rear) would I need to have for racing??

Thanks in advance.

start with a equal loads and damping at the front and rear and work your way up...

if its understeering...go for harder back/softer front

if its oversteering...go far harder front/softer back

This is in consideration that there are also other tuning methods involved...
