I have a ? bout mounting the spring on the z link rr. Currently we have it on the swingarm. What would be the advantages to mounting it in front on the birdcage. The LR is mounted behind on the birdcage. The car is good but not quite good enuff. Looking for that last little piece of the puzzle. Any info is greatly appreciated

I have tried bothe sing arm and on the cage. My feeling was that the car was more drvieable on corner entry with the swing arm. Realy not that much different otherwise. Remember that the rt rear doesn't really do a whole lot. What angle are you running on the top bar on the rt side. With the swing arm you need to have a little more angle to get the spring effectiveness. Try mounting the left side on a perch seperated from the cage in front of the rearend then you don't have to worry about indexing to get bite. Makes things a lot more simple. Worked good for me. With the spring on the axle your bars become more of a chassis tuning devices and you can change them without worring about indexing.
