is there anywhere to get info on the short bar off the pinion. What length are this bars (range)? are they better than the J-bar?

well ill just offer my experience..we run a dw7 dirty works..alot of the guys with the 8's are running it in my area so we tried it..put the loop in the bottom rail below the rearend to allow for more travel..tried it with about five inches of rake and tried it level, different scaling, bunch of stuff..never could get it to work..messed with for about a month..went back to the jbar and won the first race back out with it so i stuck with that for the remainder of the would be a rocket when the track was tacky but very crappy on the the slick, just never would take the bite and i did all my usual slick track adjustments i always did..would be willing to give it another shot if i could get some feedback on what i may have been doing wrong..anyway thats my story..good luck..

thanks for the info, thinking about changing out the long bar behind axle to one of the shorter ones.
