j-bar gives you quicker response because it is shorter.

The placement of the J-bar has a big effect on weight transfer. Most asphalt cars use a long one because it frees the car up by planting the RR tire harder. The j-bar will plant both rear tires more evenly, while a short-straight bar will plant the LR more.
