There are a bunch more of me and the guys in the Classic Gear jammers on my page on Youtube.

These are the first few vids of my car after the mini tub and coilover change.

Any of you suspension guys see anything you don't like? I'm always begging for input. Any help would be great. Pay attention to how quick the wheelie bars slam down. What can I do to keep the rear from rotating so much. Stock location suspension and coilovers.

dont clutch it and you will pick up .2 tenths easy, by the way I wish we had something like the gear jammers around here.

I shift clutchless now. I wouldn't have it any other way. I CAN tell you that stick cars LOVE new slicks.

what kind of bushings in the rear end? Looks like it bounces a little on the rebound after the hit.

All heim joint ends and solid bushings. I THINK my rear springs are a little too stiff. I already have my rear shocks set to full soft and I still have a little bounce. I think my instant center is too far back in the car, but I'm not sure what to do to fix it. A 9in rear in a fox does not have very good geometry.
