When the panhard bar is mounted behind the rearend how does the length effect handling? Left side mounted to the frame right side mounted on the backside of rearend. It has a 2 link with pullbar RR brake floats

The longer the bar is, the slower the reaction it has. A short bar on the left side of the pinion will throw the car over quicker than the long bar mounted to the right.

Longer panhard bars also load the right rear more than a short or j-bar that loads both tires more evenly.

I ran a shorty bar for the first time last night and I will not be taking it off. I love how it loads the LR.

This might be a opinion thing but what would be best for a dry slick track. I was thinking of running my long bar behind the rear in heats (load the right) and if I see the track drying out (which most tracks do these days) then change to the shorty for the feature (load the left)
Any thoughts.
