Full cage and subframe connecters keeps this bitch pretty stiff.

EDIT: Shit cappy, you can see the cage in the picture.

Well, the 500ft/lbs of torque going through 11.5 inch wide goodyear slicks doesn't hurt. :)

fyi most sfc's are not enough to come close to this. most of my friends run sfc's on their foxbodies and 99% of them suck ass. not that i'm saying yours arent. just putting that out there.
i was excited when i started peglegging. although there is a jcw mini s 2nd gen that lifts about a foot. it's nuts watching him.

Yeah but that's a minimum for fox bodies. They're flimsy like gumby.

The slowica would hike a leg all day man. Something about 63/37 weight balance.

parhaps mine is better planted...or from my diagnostic, not enough tire. i've come to realize that there is never enough tire. and should i decide to spend some real money on racing then i'll be on 17x10 wheels with 315s on them. but i'm cheap.

Ah, I ran 8fr, 6rr with a whiteline RSB (Can't remember size).

Whiteline bar for the GT is 19mm iirc... maybe 21, I know the ST bar is larger by 2mm.

might be the sway bar difference. mine is larger than the whiteline, plus all the other little things add up to a bit more spring as well. i'm not familiar with your setup, joey.
but i'd imagine them being pretty close in spring rate.

Dur, yeah ST bar.

I think the higher spring stiffness might be a part of it. Plus I never got the car super low so might be the higher CG.
