drag/street suspension?

i was curious if there was a suspension that handles good at the drga strip but can also take corners in the city? i am piecing together my parts list and well suspension is the last thing.. brands/names would be much appreciated. thanks in advance

also randomly noticing when i went to my friends house (lives in a close town) most places only sell 89 octane gas can you get tunes for superchargers to run on 89?


imports ..... for kids who cant afford gas

You're not going to want to run a supercharger on 89 gas.

"drag/street suspension"
That's an oxymoron:hihi:

If you want to do both stick with stock shocks/springs, go with LCA's and an UCA and remove your front swaybar when you go to the drag strip.

If you want to lower it for the looks do the same as above and use the BMR springs. All the other lowering springs will have rates too high for a good launch.

Well, at least get some adjustable shocks and struts, really the only option that I can think of.



You get the launch you need, and the G's you want! lol.

haha i can get 94 octane in the city but if i go to my cabin or farm i wouldnt be able to drive it into town to get anything. do they have an octane boost or something you can throw into 89 fuel to bump it up to a 92 or 93 octane?
