Top fuelers have a 500 cu in Hemi, a blower, and nitro. Does your car have that too? There's pretty much NOTHING from a TF car that applies to yours. Sorry, but as stated, look at the chassis and suspension of cars closer to yours in class, like Super Stockers. The successful racers in those classes aren't using expensive, super-adjustable suspensions just because they like to spend money.
