I have only raced leaf spring cars in the past. Thinking of changing to coil spring a car.Does anyone have any suggestions the best car to use,and how much difference will there be on set up.

I'd use a metric,some like the bigger monte carlo or caprice but i like the lighter mid-size monte,cutlass etc.As far as setup IMHO camaro's don't need near the rear weight as a metric to perform,metrics are harder to hit the right combination but can be fast if done right.Also leaf spring cars seem to like more stagger than the coil spring ones,metrics loose forward bite with too much stagger.
