CQ suspension tweaks and track mods

That was my thought as well originally, so I upgraded to a 16x17.5 TSW Hock
R with 205/50 Z rated tires.  The grip from this combination improved
substantially over stock, but the roll wasn't affected much.  I can
certainly corner faster now, but the body roll is quite pronounced when
pushed.  I'm sure some of the roll is a function of the weight of the car
(the CQ is a bit on the hefty side compared to the 4kq) but that aside, I
seem to think there should be ways to improve.

Just out of curiosity what kind of tire and size wheels are you using?
i know when i changed the 4kq from 14x6 to 16 x7.5's the handling increase 
was phenomenal.

'86 4kq
