you also are aware that you will be adding a decent amount of weight right? these things are heavy.

I understand. But in adding weight to the rear, im also making the weight distribution better. And i really dont care about weight. I mean im not all about racing. Just a nice street car. One that can handle the race track, no matter what kind it is and then be able to be just as impressive on the street on the drive home.

The weight is not really an argument. A panhard/torque arm set up will add about the same amount of weight.

It is all preference in what you want. I will be sticking with the SRA but the IRS is a perfectly good choice also. Both of the designs have their issues that must be corrected.

Of course. as does everything. Its like sc/turbo. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. IRS seems to fit my bill better than the SRA at this point...so i think.

You know it! There is a track about 50 miles from me. Expensive as all hell though.. Totally worth the price however. I dont really like my 4.10s for that track though, way to much gear changing.

For what its worth, your car will be more rounded with a ta/phb set up.

It will grip like a **** in a straight line and you wont have any problems in the twisties, the car will handle WAY better than you can drive.. I promise.

4.10's are good for auto-x but not for road courses. I had that experience and there is a lot of gear switching. I mean for the straights that were on the track they were great. I was finishing the end of the straight at about 5500rpm before i let off to brake. But for the sets of twisties, there were a couple small straights that required quick shifts to remain competitive. But still a great rear end gear!!!

Iv got a friend with a ta/PHB setup and his isnt anyworse than a lowered mustang. If you get good shocks/struts its fine.

But if you go to the track with 28spline axles and put some m/t drag radials on...be prepared to buy a new rear end lol.. a t/a phb setup grips like crazy.
