Long time building and im still having to put money in this thing, ****!
To be very general, the motor is a smallblock 353 with lots of goodies and a mild cam w/ some bump. The transmission is a new turbo 350 connected to a Moser Eng ford 9" with a ford traction lock posi, 3.70 gears, and 31 spline axles.
My problem is, I want to use the car 2-3 times a week to cruise around town. I also would like to be able to drive it to the track, put some small slicks on it and race it. The motor is estimated to be making well into the 400hp+ range. I'm looking to hear some options on what i can do to make this thing hook (and hook HARD) and still be able to have a smooth daily driver. Right now the suspension has stock control arms and the width of the rear end from Moser is stock as well. New body mounts, polyurethane everything, eibach sport coil springs, and edelbroke performer IAS shocks are in place now. Rim/Tire size is also becoming a serious issue (those stock $32.99 goodyear tires burn off quick!).
Should I do a street ladder or just some new control arms, wider tires, and some coilovers? Any suggestions would help thanks!
