Need help on figuring out how to setup a Super Stock 4-cylinder Mustang. We run 2340cc and the car has to way as much. As our car runs now, we are tight on entry and loose off exit. We run a strut/spring package up front and rear shocks. I need help with tire pressure, weight ratio from front to rear and cross-weight. We run on either a 4/10 or 1/2 mile high bank dirt oval. Any help would be much appreciated.

Run less crossweight or lower rate spring in right front. When a car runs excessive cross weight you end up loose on exit.

Need to get close, before changing tire pressures. Shoot for tire pressures between 15 and 24lbs. Alot depends on the radius of the corners.

We run a 4/10 high-banked he in kansas. Our track seems to go dry-slick Quick. We run about 51-53% front With 46-48% cross. Our car weighs about 2350lbs. If you want some setups E-mail me and I will send you What I have figured out on our car. Just remember the first thing I learned was every track and every driver are differnt. Get it close with weight and tune with air pressures.

Too much camber in the front will cause a push going in. 48 cross is a good start. The more rear weight you have the more cross you'll need.
