If I am not mistaken, Jet uses a panhard bar like you describe on their Lear modifieds. Seems to work good on the dry, like good swing arms or z links should. We are looking to put ours, like a rayburn, from the right to the left think this will enhance the left rear bite from the middle out. Got any comments?

DOES JET RUN THEIRS FROM THE LEFT ON THE CHASSIS THE ONLY THING I HAVE NOTICE ON THE RAYBURN THE BAR WAS STRAIGHT ON THE CHASSIS I THINK ON MY CAR IT WOULD HAVE TO BE INCLINED TOWARD THE REAR END I DON'T KNOW IF THIS WOULD EFFECTED ANYTHING OR NOT

Why do you want to run it on the right tube? I would recommend running it off the right side to the left tube.
You say you were looking for a way to smooth the car down, what do you mean exactly? Keep in mind with the rayburn bars that the closer you attach it to the wheel, the more that wheel will be affected and the less the opposite wheel will be affected.

We are running the jet panhard setup. The bar attaches to the left side of the frame and runs to the right tube on the rearend. We are just now learning how to set it up and don't really have any help for you yet--but friends of ours run the same setup and has great success with it. We set it at about 9 degrees and it seems to work great on tacky track but we need more experiments on dry/slick. we seem to be getting really loose on dry/slick and need to work with it more to find out how to set it for dry/slick.--- Wheels

The rayburn style pan-hard bar you guys are talking about, is that a bar that is bent and goes over the top of your yoke? If so I tryed that bar on my IMCA mod and had it hooked up that way and bent it, yea I bent that heavy bar
