I RUN A 3 LINK ON A HIGH BANKED 3/8 TRACK THAT IS ALWAYS DRY SLICK AND WAS THINKING ABOUT TRYING A 4 LINK. BUT THE FAST 4 BAR CARS ARE THE DIRTWORKS WITH THE SHORT LINKS AND THE LR SPRING BEHIND THE TUBE AND THE RR IN FRONT OF THE TUBE. MY CAR IS USUALLY A LITTLE TIGHT COMING OFF THE TURN ANYWAY AND I WAS WONDERING HOW THESE CARS TURN. IT SEEMS TO ME THE SHORT LINKS WOULD GAIN MORE ANGLE AND ALONG WITH THE LR BIRDCAGE INDEXING AND COMPRESSING THE SPRING WOULD MAKE IT PUSHY OFF THE TURN. BEFORE I TRY THIS I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW SOME IDEAS TO COUNTERACT THIS. ANY INFO WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.

I know some or them are running a softer right front spring to loosen the car some when they come off the corner

The short bars allow more rear steer, thus freeing up the car without removing forward bite.

ARE THEY RUNNING LESS LR OR LESS REAR?

I'm not sure I understand your question, but we actually can run more wedge this way, because the car will turn. It's not uncommon for us to have 300# wedge in the car. Rear% usually in the 54 to 55 range.

If your car is tight coming off the corners on a dry slick track......I wouldn't change a thing!
