How do you get a car that is 4 bar LR and swing arm z-link RR to have foward bite up the a$$ and have no roll on the RR and no lift on the LR? and have it turn on a dime and the tail stay under it?

Thanks in advance and sorry for the dumb question i just cant figure it out.

No roll on the RR??? Sounds like you need a spring and or shock thats stiffer. No lift on LR??? Decrease your LR bar angles. Forward bite up the ***?????? I must be understanding your question wrong or something. Why would you want NO roll on the RR. Do you mean no roll STEER??? Also without lift on the LR your not getting the mechanical leverage that a 4-bar is designed to give. With all of this I don't see how you would have ANY forward bite. As far as turning on the dime??? It should. When you go in the turns it would probably turn around and go were you just came from. Like I said I must be compleletly misunderstanding the question here. Please try to explain more, maybe I can help. As far as this being a "dumb" question...... the only "dumb" question is the one you never ask. Thats what everyones here for is to help each other.

Ha-ha-ha-ha..... FlyNLoIMCA17, I love that statement of "....probably turn around and go where you just came from." Gotta love it. But, I do agree with needing more information.

Sounds like he is looking for the ultimate set-up, or "dialed" as we call it. So you can drive it hard around the track, or "strapped" as we call it.

Hehe good luck on finding it thou, and if you do please share. I'm converting our car at this very moment to 4-bar LR and swing arm z-link myself.

this is a car that i have seen race before, it just sits there and doesnt roll or lift but it is a fast car on a slick track and even faster when its on the cushion. it just looks super easy to drive so i was just curious. everyone on this board has been very helpful, thanks for replying.
