My cars running the short 2 link are having success with 15-16" lr and 20" rr. new cars are going to be 18" lr and 20" rr std with plugs available to go shorter.

i just changed a car from 20.5" both to a 12" lr. at the same time i made some adjustments to loosen the car, moved diff 1" to the right, raised pinion mount of jbar 1", and ran 1% less crossweight.
this car has been loose for two years, it is now tight, comes off the corner awsome. we raised the jbar another inch because he was tight through the center, but he got a flat in parade laps, didnt get to race.
driver said it was the best the car had ever been.
set the lr bar at 10 degrees and the rr bar at 5. spring pullbar at 18. both springs on sliders behind the diff. i would mount the springs on top with jack bolts, but this car was done this way.
