THE TRACK TRACK WAS IN FAIRLY GOOD SHAPE AND EVERYONE ELSE WE TALKED TO HAD NO PROBLEMS. IT FELT LIKE THE BODY WOULD ROLL OVER THEN DROP AND THEN ROLL AGAIN AND SO ON.

I race a 72 torino gt 400 Cubic inch mod.You said that the body felt like it was rolling over? Is this in the front and back or just the front?or just the back?The whole body cannot roll.Is the rt.frt. dipping going into the turn and the lft.rear raising?or vise verses. Is it a floating bounce or a chattering bounce? Give me a little more info. and i will try to help you. FORDS ARE FOR RACING CHEVEY'S ARE FOR GETTING THERE LOL

It has a 3/4 ton truck spring on the right front and i think the its a floating bounce from the left rear. I bought the car (already set up) . It has longer racing shocks than original in the rear and longer mounts to compensate. It also has racing springs or so they said.
Im normally nothing but a CHEVY
man!
I also put my 240 pound partner on the left side since i am about 160.
