Looking for suspension & tire tips

Post by 86WhiteLightning » Sat Aug 05, 2017 8:58 am

Looking for suspension & tire tips for small nascar track. We do this every week at Langley Speedway's Wacky Wednesday in Hampton Virginia. I either race my Fiero GT or 05' Mercedes CL55 AMG. Previous owner of the Fiero GT said that the alignment of the rear tires are angled in some for better handling but it has wore the inside of the rear tires thin. I don't know if this is true or not.

Mods are
Stock 2000 Grand Prix GTP 3800 SC series 2 motor swap with Fiero Getrag 5 speed

Spec 3+ Clutch just installed

Eibach springs, rear sway bar, everything else is stock on suspension

Here is what I am talking about...

Need to know WAY more about your setup.

What wheel and tire sizes?
Do you have '84-'87 or '88 rear suspension?
What shocks and struts?
Urethane bushings in cradle and control arms?

Are there limits on what tires you can run?
What tires are currently on it?
You know your alignment settings?
