I currently have a harris car with a long panhard bar and have been thinking about swithching to a jbar. Most of the cars at the track I run are harris or pro chassis with the exception of one dirt works car that runs a rubber cushion type Jbar and this guy is wicked fast. We both run a 2 link with a torque link. There is a slight difference in my rear tire temps but nothing drastic I'm wondering if the Jbar will help much. I going to buy a dirtworks next year and keep the harris as a backup, but I would like to know if anybody has seen an improvement by replacing their long panhard bar with a rubber biscuit Jbar and what angles worked best. Harris doesn't run alot of angle on the panhard bar.

I have a Harris and replaced the long bar with a solid J-bar, and have had better luck with it..I would recommend running about 5 degrees in the bar, I tried more and the car got real erratic, but what the hey I'm new to this stuff anyway.
