Car has very little forward bite on dry/slick out of the corners. We moved pull bar to the bottom hole on the chassis and we raised the lower swing arms up (car is clamped swing arm on lr and swing arm-zlink rr)spring rates 250 lr 200 rr and a 1050 pull bar spring is that to stiff because of the clamped swing arm.the car handles great and is very drivable but feels and looks like it pulls to late on the straights.

I would try a 600 spring on the pull bar or try stiffer springs in the rear.

Why would you want to stiffen up rear springs that would loosen car up coming out of corner, Right???


What do you think of the Afco prog. rate spring

Go with the Hypercoil progressive spring it's a little but better then afco's. Afco makes good non progressive springs but they don't make a good progressive. That is just my past dealings i had with there springs.

I have a freind that has a swing arm car and he just went to a straight 1200#. It seemed to work really nice. He works up really well.gl

Donslink Some may not agree but we run a Z-link swingarm car like this it seems to work well. 950lf 1000rf 325lr 275rr allstar pullbar 25#lr bite with shocks mounted to swingarm bars in front of coils.I like the car with out clamping the LR. Metric (GRT)

Sometimes you have to take angle out of the pullbar on a slick racetrack and back the preload off also run split shocks on the front
