Re: Taking it to the track

Thanks everyone.

The car is full of compromises to make it a better street car (heavy OD trans/converter, sound abatement, pump gas, sort of a full exhaust, full carpet, 20 gal cell, all steel except hood, etc...) so I'm super happy with the results. Without major changes to the combo and giving up street manors (like a trans swap) I think my areas for improvement are in the front suspension & ladder bar settings. Thinking about ditching the coilover springs (keeping the DA shock) and going with a full length spring that will store some energy and loosen up the front. After the front work, maybe experiment with front ladder bar positioning. Leaves pretty straight so for now the preload must be about right.

Thanks again
Allen
