How does the Z-link actually help you? What type of track condition do they work best on, should we Z-link the right rear and left rear, or just the right rear.
This is on a DW-8.

a z link depending on the length of the radius rods and angles of theem will likely havee no rollsteer. but changing the length of the top or bottom on one or both sides you can change the ammount of rollsteer. a common thing to do is run a 4 link right rear with a z link left rear for roll steer puroses and to have more right rear bite, the 4 link will drive the right rear harder.

We have a DW8 and run Z-link on both sides. This is what Jeff Martin ran when he won the UMP championship in 1999 (he was our 'dealer' when we bought the car in 2000). However, our car has custom mounts as per Martin and our birdcages were made by him. Last year we ran really good on tacky, this year, running good on slick. Someday we'll get it all together.
