As someone has already pointed out, you already have a suspension layout similar to the NASCAR Cup cars. With approximately the same weight and CG height, there's no reason why the car can't be made to handle. Of course, if you want it to handle like a sports car, you have to accept the same level of harshness. Even a stock Miata has a harsher ride than a conventional car.
