got a dw7, four bar...thinking (if i can use that term) of maybe trying a 750lf, 650rf and then trying maybe a 250 or 275 on the lr..my thought is that the car will roll up on the rf more, indexing the birdcage more and with the stiffer lr, want to push up more on the lr enhancing the bite....alot of guys were racing really appear to be on the rf alot more even coming off....is this a viable idea or do i need to quit sniffing the fuel so much, lol? thanks..

i'm not really sure how you could do it, but lifting the left rear spring up about 2-4 inches from where it's at now will give you similar effects, I believe. It's just another idea that I had.

I got a 3 link but it is a little different than any others I have ever seen before, In that the mounts on the rear end are straight forward from the middle of the tube. I run an 700lf, 600rf, 225lr, 175rr. This gives me about 150 #'s of bite on the lr. It makes the car tight,(on a tacky track) but it really locks it down on a dry slick!! The car really rolls going into the corner and has a lot of sidebite in the turns. I run about 10 degrees angle on a 10" bar on the lr, the rr is 11" that is straight. As I said the car works good and is consistant every lap. It will let me throw it into the corner or roll in. Just depends on the track. The other thing you have to watch is your panhard placement. With this setup the car has to roll so you need to adjust your panhard to do that. I have run a j-bar and short straight bar, I like the straight bar better. Hope this helps. ltr spde
