I am hoping you guys can tell me some info on 2link bar angles.I know changing angles affect the rear steer.When do you want more rear steer,less rear steer?What kind of crossweight changes does a guy need to make when changing rear steer,any?Any other changes?I'm asking because I have my car as a 2link for the 1st time,was swing-arm.I see some cars with 2link bars level.some all the way up,some 1up1down.what gives????

The angle of the bar depends on what you want the car to do. I personally run my bars all the way up on both sides, but I do this because my car was tight in the middle of the corner and this loosened it up. Normally the flatter the bars the less the roll steer, and vise versa. But more angle usually promotes forward bite. I have seen some guys run the left side up and the right side down. Those cars usually pull the left front wheel off the ground. This looks cool from the stands but it doesn't win races. It makes the car hard to drive in traffic.
