Hey everyone! I run a mostly stock '92 pony on a 1/4 paved track, with these specs: 1.9L four, 5 speed, enduro type cage, 175/70R13 tires all the way around (used sumitomo HTR200 in front and right rear, and a "junkyard" right rear.) I'm running 50 P.S.I. in the right front, 40 in the left front, 30 right rear and 27 in the left rear. It has maximum allowable camber in the front, and 1/8" toe out. I'm running a straight thru exhaust (no cat, no muffler), a left rear spring that has two coils missing from being broke, and the right rear has all coils, but two are broke apart. It has stock brakes and no air filter.

I want to run it on a 1/3 dirt track, with low banking, and was wondering if I could have some tips? I already plan on switching to 14" tires since it's a longer track, and will be reinstalling the air filter. What should I run for tire pressures? Should I run staggered tires for the front so that it helps turn it? Should I change my toe setting? Should I do anything to the suspension? Anything else I can do to increase my times?

Thanks!

ok i used to run a lx about 3seasons ago found all kinds of stuff u can do to start off go to a junk yard find a escort gt 1989 it has a stock header and the motor is a 1.9 also remove all belts get a deep cyle battery since u wont have a alternator and the motor has a internal waterpump so yuor all good there just thos mods alone make it alot faster. i would go ahead and get some 195/60/15 as well they are a good fit for a 1/3 mile track as well as others. take off all componets that the belts was on (weight reduction. cut out bottom of air box turn it toward the front of car9cheap cold air setup) on the rr toe the front of the tire about 1/2 inch to the right on the lr toe the front of the tire about 1/2 inch to the right. un hook your front sway bar just let it hang there it wont get in the way this always you to keep pressure on the rf because with the sway bar hooked up it lifts the rf you will notice a big diff...ok back to the rear take out the bolts on your rear sway bar the links.. the find the biggest threaded ro that will fit through the sway bar and crossmenber on the left side of sway bar bolt it directly up to the cross member on the right side of sway bar make it have about 1inch to 1nch and a half i have helped other racers with this setup for dirt and helped them get championships you wont be disapointed maybe mess with the toe a little for perfection good luck...also airpressers i use are lf 30psi, rf35, rr35,lr40
