I'm at the point where I am really trying to improve the handling of the car to get it somewhere towards the handling of a modern car. At the moment I'm wondering what alternatives there are to leaf spring setups. What I know of so far includes

- Jag IRS (does anyone have details on such a swap?)
- Supra IRS (more hacking than the jag setup)
- TCP rear setup (messy cages)
- Fibreglass leaf spring setups (much lighter, dont know if there are any other beenfits)

The objective is to make a hard street work with occaisional circuit track car (ie straight line isnt my objective).

I'm thinking of building a 3 link someday. I got the idea from this race truck.

I'd tie the bracket for the top link into a roll cage (rear seat to likely be deleted). And I'd add a watts linkage and coilover shocks. Adding coilover shocks to the front, along with a selection of springs, the car could be setup however you like. . .
