it would depend on how the car launches. most people would recommend it im sure, but if you dont NEED the airbag, but you would have to play around with it. same as the air pressure in it. trial and error. probably be between 15-20 psi

An air bag can still help unless you go with a rear sway bar like the wolfe.

A very in-expensive and quite rewarding mod, if you play around w/air pressure and get it right... it'll help you. WJ. <img border="0" alt="[burn out]" title="" src="graemlins/gr_burnout.gif" />

Where can you get an airbag and how does it install? Can it help out a launch with a car with hypercoil springs in it?
