At the end of every straight there is a corner...
I don't think anybody got really touchy man. I have been sidelining this place for about 2 years on and off now, trying to figure out if I wanted to build cobra or a notch and from what I have seen there are 4 distinct flavors of guys in here and a ton of info for each mantra.
Road Race/Auto X
Bolt on Barneys
Street guys that want a neat car
The bolt on Barneys get pounced on quite rapidly...
That being said, Almost every part you listed is for an all out straight line kind of build with no real merit for suspension travel and weight and roll center transfer (at least laterally) but, the first sentence in your post was "great handling" so guys here see that and, roll their eyes and go "man doesn't this guy read anything." So don't take any offense. I am asking all sorts of obvious questions in the engine tech forum about motors right now just because i have never got in that deep so I don't know the lingo and i'm sure these guys roll their eyes on my posts a lot. There is way too much good info here to even get ruffled about it.
Look at my signature...the suspension parts in there are just about minimum for a "good & tight" handling car and, I am not even half way there. I could spend at least another 5K in brakes and front setup just to get to "Great" but, the card was smoking and I had to let it cool for a while. If you peice part a MM kit together for just the "middle of the road parts" it will run you about $3500.00 but it can get over 7K if you do everything they recommend. I have called them quite a bit and they are great with the info...Ditch the drag stuff if you want to carve a corner...No offense drag boys (that sounded weird) sorry for dragging on.
