Good article, lots of good info to help folks dialing in their car at the track.  It's great right up tog] the end where I hit the "Grizzled race veterans say you're not working the suspension until you hit 600 HP".  Which was translated to "no wheelies until you get to 600HP".  My rebuttal to that is a 480 HP 351C, 4800 stall running 7.30s @ 94 with a 1.60 60'.

103109 Falcon800

It was hoisting the left front 1" at 400 HP.  8 point roll bar, Caltracks, Rancho rear shocks, 46 year old stock leafs, CE 90/10 front shocks and 260 in/lb Moroso Trick springs

Don't worry about what others say. As long as you are having fun what difference does it make?
