OK everyone. Im getting a new car that has every type of suspension mount you can think of in it. I'm pretty sure we will go swing arm on the right initially because a lot of the tracks we run get fairly rough, but also dryslick. The car is coming out with a swing arm on the left also, but we want to try everything. What's your recommendations? 4 bar with spring in front or back? What about clamping the lr spring to the housing? Throw it out there. We are going to rent a track to test multiple setups and I am looking for lots of ideas.

It all depends on what feels comfortable to you as a driver. The more comfortable you are the faster you will be. For small, smooth, dry slick tracks, the 4bar/zlink is pretty fast for a lot of guys. Most of the time you'll want the spring behind on the LR birdcage and on the swingarm for the RR birdcage with a 4/z.
