I have appox. 4" that I could raise my cell. Was thinking about raising it 3"(just to leave a little buffer zone) and was wondering if it would be beneficial enough to go thru the extra work. What do you think?

Our rules state that the cell has to measure 10in from the ground. Eddie

Make sure you measure the hieght with car in race ready condition with you in the car. You don't want to be DQ'ed for something like that and it is a safety issue as well. If you give yourself 1/2" above the stated height you will be fine and it will have no adverse affect on the performance of your car!

Sounds like you want to raise it for more roll over onto the rr??
If you need more roll over to the rr at all times I would raise it.

But if you only need it part of the time like on dry, and can raise your lead when needed instead I wouldnt raise it up.

we have allways placed our cells as high as we could get them, havent done it any other way, but our cars have allways been way better on dry slick than most.

Istock66 and theBomb, that was exactly what my question was referring to, I just didn't know if the 3" was worth the time to do or not. I think I might just leave it alone for now because I also was running almost 2" low on ride heigth in the back, so maybe I should wait and see what difference that might make. I can always raise the cell later if I think I need to. Thanks to all.
