are they going to give enough hot laps for set up. I would start by just raising front and rear pan hard bar to the very top.

Took our Troyer 4-link to a asphalt track last year. Put lots of left side wieght in it and even put a helper spring on the right rear shock. Left the right side frame hieghts at 6" put lowered the left rear to about 2 1/2". Started 2nd and finished 2nd. We were given used tires to run on, the one the regular asphalt drivers said that are used junk. 15 cars started the race, there was no spin outs and no flats on those tires. It was the race of champions day for the track so we got to see a good show. And the track was Tioga Motorsports Park in Owego, New York. We had a blast and would do it again.

Add Lots of L/F weight and stiffen up your steering arm. That long arm will noticably flex on asphalt.
