I am currently designing a fox body mustang to build after my army tour in Korea is over (May). First off I will be running NASA.
8.8 IRS (out of a tbird) tubular a arms and coil-overs on all corners
302 carb engine aluminum heads forged rotating assembly t-5 transmision
nasa approved cage
tubular diff and tubular k member with redesigned tube strut mount for proper coilover travel etc.
the car will be completely gutted with fabricated dash and solid steering column
I am thinking wheel travel will be around 9 inch's on all fours
Is there anything I am missing to be legal in 2wd open and anything in my plans I can not do?
Also I need help on spring length and rate Also over all coil-over length. Shock rebound and compression rates.
What gearing do you guys usually run?
Me and my dad have built plenty of race cars and my dad is a mechanic by profession however this will be our first rally build I am expecting the build to take a year or so. Any and all input would be greatly appreciated. I want to have the design hammered out by may so I can begin work when I settle in at Paso Robles CA.
