air ride is so overrated
it makes for a stiff ride with not much in the way of shock absorbtion.
remember the old hijacker airshocks?

Given the fact that you're building a pro-touring car, with the limited choices given, I say mini-tub and relocated leaves.

Wrong....My car has air ride, with shockwaves in the front, and the ride quality is great....you just need to have the right components. The fact that you are comparing contemporary air ride systems to airshocks of the 70's tells me that you probably haven't had much experience with a good system.

Airride is nothing like this and if you have been in a proper airride car you would now this. Airride is nice smooth and handles great. You could not ask for a better ride and it performs. If you saw the green blazer on the autocross you know you can actually drive it. Airride all the way much nicer than coil-overs.
