what it is is a ladder bar, or looks like a ladder bar that hooks to a birdcage so rearend can float, and hooks to one mount on the frame. it would be basically a floated 2 link. john logue off boone iowa tested this for harris auto racing back around 94 or 95.
yes the car sure did have some bite, with the short torque link mounted clear to the left , the thing wanted to carry the left front tire all around the track. it was pulled off the end of the year and changed back to reg 2 link. drivers preference

I personally have never ran one, but have heard of a few late models running them. They run them on the right rear, because it is supposed to take rear steer out of the car. It is used around here on smooth dry slick tracks. Not for sure though, that is just what I have heard.
