drifting yea! i just thought that was the way you were supposed to drive until a few years ago when i heard someone call it drifting. I used to call it late for work. I guess i have been drifting for a long time now!
here is a little of that kind of driving right before i pulled the old 360 last summer.
I have a suspension jig that i use on streetrods to build C4 vette suspension with if you dont mind a couple vette parts.
the biggest problem with getting a daytona to handle other than suspension related stuff is that the motor is so far over the front axle centerline that its got a lot of weight up front and you cant change that with any suspension. you can either move the motor back under the firewall and completely gut the dash and move your front seal back and then it really wouldnt look stock inside anymore. you could also stretch the front end a few inches to help and move the front wheels forward at the same time.
mine still handles pretty well and i dont have the sway bar up front anymore. the one i am building now will have front and rear sway bars.
I had thoughts of doing a independant rear and a non strut front suspension but i moves on to planning another project. from the 1930's ,i have had sitting here for ever and want to get to work on. i want something i can chop up and customize more.
the daytona has been my driver for a while and i never get tired of driving it! its as much fun now as it was 10 years ago. I have even got married since then and she isint scared orf riding in it with me. I let her drive it to carlisle this year for the chrysler show and she didnt want to get out of it,except that i never hooked the air back up and it was really hot. i am surprised there have been as many people interested in building cars like this as there are.
I redesigned a new front suspension crossmember and engine mounts for this 6.1 to fit a front sump oil pan that it came with. the transmission actually bolts to the oil pan on it.
