Making a track car streetable

Postby oldhead » Sun Sep 10, 2017 7:55 pm

I have streeting it 11 years,1980 malibu, it was a race only car, but that has changed, I drive it on long trips. It runs 8.70 at 157 with 1.30 60s. I am 81 years old and love the wheelies a 100 ft. long and more, IT RIDES HARD, Bottoming in the rear alot. Are the springs to light(Comp.Eng), there 100#. The car is 3570#. I dont want to hurt the track times. Oldhead
