Default Shock Spacers?

Our club is traveling to another track for something different. We normally run on off road oval and have been invited to come to an on road track. The on road track operator has organized a 2WD SCT race for fun. We are all running Spec Bandito tires.
Since on-road has no bumps or jumps, what is the best thing to do to my shocks for on road?
I have added shock spacers in an attempt to lessen roll in corners. Is this a good idea?
Anything else I can do that does not require a lot of modifications?

Thanks, Rick

Rick,
to prevent down travel on the shocks some folks will cut a small piece of fuel tubing (size will depend on the need) and put it inside the shock behind the the shock piston. This will prevent the shock from completely extending causing the vehicle to be closer/lower to the ground (lower center of gravity) and less prone to roll overs.

Get the car as low as possible (centre of gravity)and put the thickest roll bar on that you have
