any comments are welcome. want to build anew car for next season, choices are 3link with everything solid,no traction promoting bushings,third link springs ect.orleaf springs,must be stack only no mono.What will be better on areal dry slick banked track? this is on a 2900lb wissota super stock. no one around here runs leafs any more but with our rules it sure seems the leaf car would have an advantage. comments please.

I would think leafs should be better. atleast they would wrap up some and help with traction. A solid pull bar will just rip the tires free.
if you run leafs check out this sight it is a tech help thread on a different forum about a leaf car might help. http://www.4m.net/showthread.php?t=145502

coil springs rule wissota super stocks. They give you so much more flexability with set up. you can run a round pull bar bushing. what kind of chassis do you have know?

a good driver with a decent set up coil car will whoop up on the leafs any day..people use leaf cars for a crutch...
