So far we are very happy with the car. We are just going thru the learning curve of a 4 bar Z. Everyone says it will take 1/2 season to get really fast with these suspentions, but we are already running competivly and winning some heats and B-features. Its just a matter of learning the suspentions and driving techniques.

The car handles great and is easy to drive. We will see as the season progresses.

I really don't know why you would need a 1/2 the year to learn the 4 link Z link set up. Start with 40 to 50 of lr and adust from there. run a 200 to 225 spring on the rr, remember if you run the spring on top the the rear end bar angle will not be affected. Try running the lr spring (200) in the front of the axel on the birdcage. This will keep the car smooth. don't hit the brake getting in, just apply them softly until you hit the apex of the corner. Your car will turn.

Hey Mike,

The car looks awesome. You guys did a fantastic job on the sheet metal. I should have had you do my car when Richard had it.

I hope I will be able to get my wishbone Black Diamond to work as well. I still have a few weeks before the start of the season.

I am working on a new chassis right now gettign the stub ready. I hope to incorporate the above mentioned suspensions plus the 2 link into one car, combo suspension mounts and to change between them just by changing links, locking birdcages, and using bolt on plugs for the lower links. Will keep you all posted.
