#3 My favorite option for a lot of customers = Whatever is on your car.
One of my favorite suggestions for our customers is whatever is on your car. You know what is more important that a never ending build trying to perfect your car in the garage? ....Actual track time. The more passes down the quarter mile you can make regardless of your suspension setup the quicker and better not only will the car get but you as a driver will get. I don't care if you have stock springs or basic lowering springs and performance shocks it is far more valuable to get track time than anything else. You will easily become quicker and faster just by familiarity with the car and how it reacts going down the track. Plus you will also develop a great sense of what the car actually needs suspension setup wise to spend your hard earned money correctly the first time. One of the hardest parts about racing is actually getting to the track. Don't let the idea that you need a perfect car / setup to be achieved before heading to the drag strip deter you away from how valuable seat time and repetition at the track is.
