I'm curious- at what point does the MC need rear suspension mods for drag racing, and what are some must-do changes? I was surprised I pulled a 1.72 60' with a completely stock rear suspension. If I throw some N20 at it, I can't image the stock suspension will continue to "work". I'm used to leaf-spring cars that need slapper bars with any sort of power.

If you change your upper and lower control arms to the boxed type,it will help alot with wheel hop. also adding a rear sway bar helps to stiffen up things alot.

Leo, you have to remember I've seen your so called junk and the junk part just aint true. If I have a new tranny by then I say let's "Get'r Done". Maybe by then I'll actually have been on a track more than once in my lifetime. You definitely have a big edge if you bring the pro-street car. Finally signs of life in here. I was getting bored.

Leo's feelin' onery today!

 

I have South Side Machine lowers and the same Edelbrock adjustable uppers as Sam and was very impressed with the quality and the type of joint they used, not a typical rod end.

Steve,

 

I run air bags and relocation brackets on the lower control arms. I preload the right side with 18 psi on the right and 0 on the left. Helps the car leave straight and helps with traction and planting the r/r tire. See pic link below;
