Default Advice stringing Wilson Six One 95s

Hello, i have a question for stringing this spin racket.

Wilson Six One 95s:
Mains - 18
Crosses - 16

Inside frame before stringing:
Length - 32,0 cm (12,6 inch)
Width - 23,6 cm (9,3 inch)
String - Wilson Ripspin 1.30 (16)

I always string one piece, around the world with 2 knots.

When i follow the tension adviser the crosses should be 6 kg (13,2 lbs) tighter than the mains. Seems logic because this racket has less crosses.

Now i have 3 comments:
1) 6 kg (13,2 lbs) difference seems much, I would never go further than 2 kg (4,4 lbs) between mains and crosses. How far can i go?
2) When you tension the crosses harder are you not going to undo the spin function? The mains are going to move less?
3) How far may a racket deform? Is 3 mm (0,1 inch) or 4 mm (0,2 inch) allowed?

I did a test but the result was strange:
Test 1) M: 24 kg (52,9 lbs) C: 24 kg (52,9 lbs)
Frame after stringing L:31,8 cm (12,5 inch) cm W: 24,0 cm (9,4 inch)

Test 2) M: 22 kg (48,5 lbs) C: 24 kg (52,9 lbs)
Frame after stringing L:31,7 (12,4 inch) cm W: 24,0 cm (9,4 inch)

Test 3) M: 24 kg (52,9 lbs) C: 22 kg (48,5 lbs)
Frame after stringing L: 31,7 (12,4 inch) cm W: 24,1 cm (9,5 inch)

Test 4) M: 20 kg (44,1 lbs) C: 24 kg (52,9 lbs)
Frame after stringing L:31,7 (12,5 inch) W: 23,9 (9,3 inch)

Test 5) M: 20kg (44,1 lbs) C: 26 kg (57,3 lbs)
Frame after stringing L:31,8 cm (12,5 inch) cm W: 24,0 cm (9,4 inch) = NO DIFFERENCE AS SAME TENSION M & C!

Someone has tension advice for stringing this type of racket. Or are here people playing with it?

It seems to me that you are warping the frame, this can't be good for the racket. If you are going to string a hybrid, I would say string with the same tension, your racket will last longer..
