a little more weight, wider stance, longer wheelbase all helps, also the older frames have better front suspension geometry.

I asked the same question some time back, and most seemed to think that the metrics handled better, but I still have my doubts.

Maybe you just had it setup better. Maybe the metric car could have used some work on weights and percentages. My opinion is, if your put the same amount of time into each, the metric car should handle better. I think it is more tunable. The front suspension geometry is better, and I like the rear suspension better. But in a bomber class, depending on how rough yours is, the extra weight and stiffer car may come in handy.

your way heavy on the front that could be part of the problem 1100rf and 950 on the lf 250 rr and 200lr thats what i run works good. another thing you might want to consider as to why the chevell handled better is the speed how much faster was the metric car i know the best handleing car i drove was my 74 bonneville cruiser but it also was only gong about 50 mph
