So why does everyone say the pinto is a good mini stock car?

I can't speak for everyone. But I like the pinto because the shorter wheel base, and their very light. I like the front suspension better than the struts.

I wouldn't go the pinto rout. first of all can you say ugly, heavy. I like the corolla. mine weighs 1800lbs it is way cheaper to build the motor and they walk all over the fords, unless maybe they put $8500 in there cars. and they still have a hard time beating the good old 3tc engine. the struts are good and there is racing parts out there for the 3tc, just got to look.

We raced a 78 mustang the first year we did minis it was a decent car,but the pinto we ran was lighter and it handeled a lot better than the mustang. once we got a decent head on the car it was hard to beat,we ran under no weight rule and those 1800 lbs.rice rockets hated it when we pulled in the track.we run a pro 4 car now it's fun to..
