Stay with the biscuit less maintenance just as fast if not faster. If everybody else jumped off a building would you? Stay with what works for you and dont worry about what everyone else is doing and you will be fast. Just my opinion.

I went from an AFCO spring pull bar to a ALLSTAR biscuit type pull bar and I am way more happier with the biscuit. Mod6m is right, way less maintenance.

I ran the allstar bar last year and really liked it. The car was better getting in and more stable. I also have a allstar spring bar setup if it gets real dry.

I ran the biscuit pull bar all the time after I swithched. And our track was always dry slick. I just changed the angle of the pull bar from the heat to the feature!

Ok for what its worth my car is a lot diff than most. I do decrease the angle with the rubber bar than say a spring. I ran the med rubber and it seemed to work real well. The angle that the bar is at will determan how you like the car and how the car likes it. I had to take alot of angle out do to the fact that it would lift the car all the way up. I can tell ya that when i put it in i felt as if i had more control of the car with the quick reaction to the rear. Just my cents for what it worth

Is this the same type torque absorber as the one Quick Car sells? If not has anyone had any experience with the Quick Car type? It's pictured in the May Circle Track ad.

Where is the best place to buy the All-Star Torque Absorber? How much did you pay for yours? The only place I've found so far that has them is Lane Automotive.

Mod6M, Hook me up with D&M's number. I guess they don't have a website, because I could not find it.

Thanks

The # is 1 800 233-0571 they say to run 1" to 1.5" preload I think its better with about 3/8. The price in the book 95.00.

You can get a new biscuit from GRP out of Oklahoma for $65.00 ea. You can get pull bar and biscuit for 140.00 for the both of them. Diff compounds for more travel for dry slick tracks.
