HO, A-6 should give you close to 18.5lb, start there. I would use the blue goodwin sec. spring if you have it. In the goodwin kit that you have, what ramps and spring colour doo you have?

Stock according to the 'Doo specification book is 15.4#...IMHO that's too loose... I run 18# with a Goodwin Blue secondary spring and their teflon buttons.. works good at my low altitude..

everybodys got thier one experinece. For me, I find that 19lbs is the best no mater what spring/ramp combo i am using... Unless i am on the grass. then i run 15lbs.

Call Greg Goodwin at 847-872-4001 and ask him about your clutch set-up. I used to own that exact sled and had a goodwin clutch kit and it used to rip. In fact i used to regularly win a lot of grass drags, even against pros. If I remember though, I used to run it in B-5/6 and my TRA was in 4 for trail riding. (I may be wrong though, it was a few years ago)

Also, who installed the clutch kit? The first time I had it installed, I had a "mechanic" friend install it, and the performance just wasn't right. I took it over to Goodwin and had them install it, and they found it wasn't shimmed properly (they need to be aligned perfectly) and the difference was night and day.
