Now I have have been running demolition derbies since 2004 and have never ran a figure 8 car. I figured I would give it a shot since regular derby has been getting kinda boring to me. I have a 73 monte carlo that I was building into a derby car that will now be a figure 8 car. It will be wire class so it has to be some what stockish. I shortened it 4 inches and hard nosed the bumper. I am not done with my cage but I will have a four point cage with 4 down bars and a halo bar. Not sure what else to do to the car. I know how to build a derby car so I will do all of that stuff strength wise but what should I do to make it handle. Brakes, steering, gears, etc. A buddy of mine said not to use back brakes but that didn't make sense to me. Anyway any help is appreciated.
