Given the limitations of the stock type rear spring setup, What type of  class and which racing organization? It's a compromise at best.  Ask Brian Walsh or 71 Hanto.  My 72 hatch has to do dual duty for Auto X and Timed hillclimbs, it's a good setup but has flaws in both setups.
Yes, it is possible to study and become a master of Pintosophy.. Not a religion , nothing less than a life quest for non conformity and rational thought. What Horse did you ride in on?
