There is ALOT of information to cover about bar angle adjustments, for lift angels, rear steer to bird cage indixing. The best thing to do is to get the NEW bok out about the GRT chassis form Steve Smith. This is a very good information source.

that book by grt's joe garrison can be found by searching the steve smith publications web site. i bought one just 12 months ago and it has been very good.
the 4 link tech on jimmy judds web site is from the afco tech page, it is a good introduction but very basic and a little outdated. that said it is definitely worth reading if your just starting out.
the best bit of information i read on j.j.'s web site is the article by scott bloomquist about weight placement & distribution, that really got me thinking.

If your using the 4-link rearends you should know that the birdcages are playing a very important roll in the setup be sure to have bearing type birdcages and be sure to add the sixth coil to help spring the corners smooth without hopping also check that all parts kept clean after every race clean and lubricate then check for loose bolts and watch the J-bar lenghs and buy the multiple hole plates because one small adjustment will WIN you a Trophy! Never try to run a second race without cleaning and greasing the birdcages and check for bent or broken links! loosen your J-bar and slide the rearend from side to side watch the action underneath the car while someone pushes the rearend left and right slow with small amount of pressure pay attention to the birdcages sliding GRT has all the lengths of the bars online and make sure you put the behind the rearend shock update on your GRT Chassis if it is not done!
