Hello fellow Ford nuts! I am looking to race on a 3/8 asphalt circle track if I can get my car together. I just bought a 91 Ford Escort GT and am looking to find out if anyone out there knows what the setup should be for the following:

What stagger to run on the front and rear?
What should be done with the sway bar on the front and any other modifications that could help improve a bad push? The front end is sliding out.
Lastly, I need assistance on what spring rating do you use?

Thanks.

Adjust front tire pressure until push is less. Then adjust rear stagger to
get more of the push out. THEN worry about springs.

camber

how much camber are you allowed? that will help you a ton with a push. we are allowed 6 degress about 2.5 inches or so. Lots of ways to get some....drill your strut and /or spindle drill you top holes can get you some turn you strut mount around can get you a bit and is legal everywhere...when you look at the strut tower and the mount you will notice that the top hole and the interior circle of the mount will have a different size space between the sides make sure the smaller space is on the engine side giving you a bit.
