How well can a Fox Body handle???????
I've got a 93 LX....original owner with 100k miles. Stock suspension.
I've only cared about straightline performance in this car, but recently I've wanted to get into road racing. Since I don't want to put a roll bar in my '03 Cobra vert, I'm left with the option of using the Fox or selling it for something else. The car has sentimental value, so I'd love to keep it and use it for road racing....BUT....I have several questions.
1. Assuming that I'm capable of doing extensive suspension mods, any re-conditioning required and with above average driving skills, can a properly set up Fox Body hang with the M3's, Evo's, Vettes and Vipers on a road course???
I'm sure those gutted, wide body and heavily cambered cars can do it, but can a street car ever be setup to hang with them? I'd be willing to go with a rollbar setup, rear seat delete, battery relocation, lightweight hood, splitter.....but I don't want the car in the weeds, don't want a huge wing and I want to keep it streetable and registered (I'll do exhaust mods anyway).
If so, what are some good examples of fox body's that can do this??? What's the mod list?
I'm not looking to win class championships or break records but I'd love to be able to mod up my Fox Body and, with some good driving skills, run with some of today's high performance cars.....and ofcourse....represent fox bodies.
If there's a thread that covers this in general, please do send. (I didn't see anything from a broad point of view)
