There are someone that has tried this or a similar spring for Spitfires or a GT6. But I never heard the end result. I think it was Steve Smith, a well known GT6 racer. I think his was less expensive.

Hi Rob,

I'd like to give monoleaf springs a try some day. If I do, it will probably be in conjunction with a change to either a tube shock setup or larger lever shocks. A monoleaf will work the shocks harder than a multi-leaf spring, which has some inherent dampening just due to the leaves rubbing against each other. Hope you get some feedback. Please pass along anything you hear elsewhere.
