we are running a 3 link on our left rear. we have it hooked up great when the track is tacky. we have about 7 degrees in our radius rod. when the track gets slick we tried it with 7 degrees we even went up to 24 and we can not get the car to do anything but spin its tires on a dry slick track. can anyone help.

Well...for one, your spring rates are going to be figured differently, so your rates are gonna look funny when you set it up. They will be pretty close to the same, but the weight at the wheel will not be. That is one thing, but it sounds like you need to add left side to the car for the feature. It needs to stay more on the left rear tire on a slick track.

for the feature we set up the car with about 275lbs of left rear but all we do is spin the tires

jammin i would like to thank you for the help but thursday night we sat down and we decided we were gonna put the left rear on a four link. it worked ok friday night our driver said he like it alot better on the dry slick with what little time we had out there. this fellow cut down on us and we got into his rear end and it tore up the nose and bumper and shreaded the right front. thanks again for the help sorry to waste your time
