I went to a solid bar after I broke my spring arm and couldn't afford the $150 for a new one. I put it in at the same angle as the spring arm was (around 20*) and really liked how it performed. I even used it at a very flat dry/slick track without any problems which supprised me. Be sure to run it without the shock installed.

We always had luck with the solid bar when we made it as long as possable and kept about the same angle as with the spring bar. The farther forward it mounts the more weight it trys to lift.

A short bar loses angle faster than a long bar. Over a long race on alcohol your car will gain height from the wieght loss of burned fuel which will take angle out of a short bar.

A long bar will lose less angle than a short bar when both travel the same amount. Take a pencil and put it on the table and raise one end an inch. Then take a yard stick and put it on the table and raise one end an inch. The change in angle is significant.

Good luck,
