I am looking for decent steet handling, with some help on launch at the occasional strip foray.

Go to my site and check the specs on my car.

I have 12" 175lbs. I run it on the street and the strip. Works well for me.

225-475 is too stiff for a great drag launch.

The 225-475 is a decent all-around coilover spring. I would use a 12" long spring instead of 10".
