hello guys just want to ask a question. i have a Champion chassis with 3 link, solid pull bar and short panhard.
the panhard is in fron on left side there is alot of rake in it. The problem is the cars is rolling over and the right rear tire is rubbing the shock. both springs are on top of housing and the lr and rr trailing arms are going up hill. i dont know the weights yet haven had it on scales yet. last sat. was the first time for me to drive a this car and first b-modified. should i move the panhard up a hole on the pinion side or both sides so it dont roll over so much. also i have a 4" offset on the rr should i leave the bar alone and put 3" offset. the track was heavy and biteing real good.
thanks Vince

hey vince88, I would take some angle out of the bar, probably on the frame side. You didn't say what hole you've got it in on the pinion, but most mount it on the second from bottom (4 hole mount). I go by degrees when I set mine because it's more consistant than inches of rake, but 3 to 4 inches is common (15 to 17 deg in mine). The 4" off on the RR should be OK, that's what I've got and I know guys running 4.75" offs. The further you move the RR out the less bite it will get, and the looser the car. What are your springs? (and really try to get her scaled)

Had 3 diiferent mods the last 3 years and never could run a 4" offset on the right rear. Caused the tire to rub every time.

thanks guys, im work offshore in the gulf of mexico <oil platform> and when i get home im going to try and get car scaled. the bar is in the top hole on frame and very bottom hole on pinion side. alot more than 17 deg. if i had to guess its like 25 to 30 deg.
thanks again
Vince
