I think they are a good item to have if you have plenty of traction(not dryslick). What do you think?

I think you can get by without them. Just by moving the rear springs to swing-arms, or the top of the axle housing you free up the front of the rear end, like floaters birdcages would do. You just wouldn't be able to adjust out roll steer. I think a little roll steer is a good thing.

I don't realy understand what your queston is.On certain kinds of suspensions you got to have them.Dry slick is not going to affect a car on birdcages that is built right.

I have aquired a 2000 DW8 that will accept a 2 link or a swingarm(z-link) I have always wanted to try a swingarm but hear a lot of people bashing them, how about some input on Z-link swingarm vs. 2 link???

I think the people you hear bashing them just dont understand them. I have raced against some DW8's with Z-link. The cars really hook on dry. You can tune out the roll steer I think. I would run the Z-link before I would go 4-link. I think you would have more weight on the rear springs with z-link. Just my opinion.
