I recently installed a torque link on my 96
harris,I couldnt get the torque arm to hook
up we run on very dry slick track.Harris does
not have much info on torque links. so I ask
for some input from fellow racers.My problem
is I cant hook up coming off the corners.My
current setup is.
50% cross 51 Ls 61%rear with 100lbs lead
650 lf spring
750 rf "
200 across back
76 shocks across front
94 " " back
short bar ls diff
800 lb torque spring travel is 2.5"
3" stagger rear
5.43 diff. could be to low ratio
Iam currently getting app. 3.5" rr shock travel
Question,what effect does the location of the control arms have with a torque link
Thanks Rick

raising the front of the trailing arm increases anti-squat on that side. Typical harris setup is both bars in middle hole but alot of people run the lr in the top hole and rr in bottom hole when it gets slick. Also most harris cars have the lr spring in front of axle and rr behind to add wedge under accel. Both those changes should tighten exit, also you may try more diagonal.
