Coupla things to keep in mind on your racing endeavors...
1)Im assuming you already have the confederate flag painted on the hood. 
If not, do it. Its quite the statement.

2) Rule of thumb: The higher the vehicle, the better it is.  I know a set 
of hi-jak air shocks in the rear will fit. They fit my hi-po pacer wagon 
years ago.

3) If you mount the radiater further back, you have less chance of 
puncturing it during the demo-derby. (I learned this the hard way on the 
ol' rally vega)

If you have any other tips for us let us know. Its always a challenge 
driving your race car on the streets. Good luck!
