Is it better to have a low ride height? I bought an old asphalt camaro, and am going to run it on dirt and was just wondering if i need to raise the car back up some. I think it probably has about a 4 - 5" ride height. I'm kind of new to this and would like some other peoples opinions. I've heard that on dirt the car may be to low, and I might not get enough body roll.

Last year was my 1st year of dirt after running about 10 years of asphalt. i read somewhere that if you ran dirt to raise the car an inch on each side but i do think it depends on the track. One track i ran you needed the car higher because it was so rough the other is smooth so i dropped it back down and seemed to have good results at both tracks,maybe some of the more experienced guys can help out with this one.
