Suspension Tuning, Troubleshooting, Design and Discussion

Ok guys, need a little help here. I’ve got a ‘70 Nova on a Nitto 275 drag radial. I run a turbo 5.3, th400 and a 3.31 gear. Caltracs, Landrum monos, sliders, plenty of travel front and rear. Viking DAs all around. I run the bars in the bottom hole with 1/2 turn preload. Conventional spring up front (165lb) and the car weighs 3450 with me. Sorry no corner weights. Let’s just say that the track prep is poor. I’ve tried quite a few different shock settings and have had the bars top and bottom holes. Maybe I’m just missing the setup. I’ve got a timing ramp setup for testing so maybe that’s the magic bullet. Any advice would be much appreciated. Let me know what you guys think. The car previously ran 107 in the 1/8 on 15 pounds and a dismal 1.89 60 foot (all my fault/boost controller brain fart). Should run 9.50s when figured out.

I’m starting to get it figured out somewhat. It’s definitely a cross between a settings for a slick and a radial as far as shocks go. Along with some fairly precise and aggressive power management. Seems we’re making progress, just need to keep at it. I’ll keep you posted.
