Our track has just opened up our rules and they have allowed us to run full race suspensions. What would you all sugest we do. We have already changed the pinion angle, by making our own adjustanble control arms. We also put some good shocks and springs on. Theres not much we cant do, my dad is pretty talented, so if its a homemade jobby just tells us how. We are running a mid 80's mustang. Thanks for any and all help

I feel your pain. I guess that that is a strut car?. From my very short experience, a leaf car would be better, if that is possible. Landrum makes a spring that is just for Mustang and Pinto cars. with the right combination of racing shock and springs, along with the right rear weight percentage, you should be ok. Just my opinion. Ask MD, he is my car builder and crew chief. If anyone could steer you in the right direction ,he will.
