It is possible, for instance, that when YSR say 8/6 there might be some rounding involved and it's more of a 8.3/5.5 ratio (measuring in whole kg is a bit odd really).
Anyway, I'd just like to hear about the balance of the car from these YSR owners with NA or NB and the '8kg/6kg' springs when used on a track/hill climb.
I can honestly say your alignment plays a far greater role in balance than subtle differences in spring rate ratios. I currently run max rear camber that stock suspension allows, and -0.5' front, with full forward caster @ front. Standard sways, and yellowspeed Sports.
With this in mind, I get very neutral handling at speed, with a slight tendency to understeer (this is the opposite effect to the increased rear spring ratio suggested in the linked thread) at lower speed corners (i.e. 1st gear before you hit the power), or in rough/choppy turns. In all turns the car balances well using throttle and brake/trailing throttle, so I wouldn't change my camber settings at all.
I suspect that swaybars will play more of a role in balance than the spring rates do, since you're limiting the grip of the inside wheels more when running stiffer sways, but on standard sways, it is VERY well balanced.
Just my 2c as an owner of the yellows after owning them a while.
