Putting together a Celica to run on A quarter-mile banked dirt track. Just a claimer class, so everything must be pretty much stock. Can use up to DOT 70 series tires. Any tips?

Find the front strut spring from an 83-84 celica gt use this on the rt front it has a higher spring wieght. if you can find one with the 4:10 rear use the gears. Lock the rear end so it is a posi track. I used 205 60R 14's on my celica and I could out pull most of the cars on the track. If your rules allow it use a piece of all thread on the right front sway bar. Put the all thread in place of the existing mounting bolt. use 4 nuts so you can adjust tension up or down to assist with handling. also if the car is loose on exit put a smaller tire on the left rear and it will help keep you under control.
