Hey Guys, I am building a 1981-83 Buick Regal
I need some help in the weight to take out and rear spring rates, I will be racing on our 1/3 clay oval, with minimal banking. I have seen trunks completely gutted out, but in my trunk I see 1 bar on each side that is supporting the quarter I cut those out and make bars from the rear hoop to support it or leave the stockbars in?
any help is greatly appreciated.

from what i have seen over the years a little tail weight never hurt anybody as far as springs i run 250lr and 200 rr but i run on tracks that have some decent bank to them
