Hi guys, My name is Wade. Im diving into the stock car world feet first here and was hoping for some setup help. What I have is a lm was told it was a mid 90's Howe. Howe says no. Any way its an offset chassis with a howe XL coilover front clip, 3 link rear, and iron head small block 2850bls w/driver. Currently has a conventional spring set up.

I will have to rescale the car for me and the changes I had to make to meet our rules. Plate the dr side bars and 1/8 floor and under seat.

Any help or advise I could get for first time setup and driver or any recommended changes would be great. Thanks guys I know its old school but I needed to start somewhere. lolSmile
