has anyone ever tried this, we broke the brackets on the rr in the heat and were forced to run it like this for the a, but the track was bad slick and the car was still a little tight, has anyone tried this before, if so howd you like it.
Im thinking of leavin it this way.

Should work real well for you. There are a number of guys around here who do that and like it. It gives the LR alot of bite and more travel. I've gone to shorts on both sides and am getting more travel and better bite than ever.

i did have two shorts on and it was pretty good. im still tryin to figure out what to do on my car to get it the best it can be. I really like the three links and it seems to be hooked up great no matter what, just wondered what i can to to make it better. thanks for the input though, i appreciate all the help i can get.

i like the short lr and long rr, it will make the car gain lr thrust fast, and loose rr thrust slower than a short rr. and also it will add some rear steer to get the car threw the corner better.

Short and long works for me ,never had a 4 link or 4z but with this set up I dont think I need one ....we run with those guys and beet them on a consistant bassis ....always have people asking if I run a 4 bar and some are surprized when they find out its just a simple 3 link.

My ride came with the setup already set that way and I love it. Car never seems to be out of traction even when the track slicks over. The mix combo doens't beat you up even on a rough tack.

We run a 4 link and broke the top mount on the birdcage at a money race. We put a spare pull bar (40 inches long) from a friends car on the right rear, clamped the bird cage, and used 2 weight clamp brackets and a peice of steel for a mount, we switched the left bars to the same angle and left them on the birdcage and ran it as a 3 link with a lift bar. We guessed on the setup and the car was fast and fun to drive. I finished 4th but it was a blast. We finished the year like that and I am building a new car for the same setup except I am building it with a pull bar.

Sometimes the best things you run across, are found by accident. I think you are on to something JR
