anyone know how much angle you can get in a shorty bar before it gets high centered in the car. would it hurt anything to put it at 25-30 degrees. the car is a three link.

I am not sure about angle in degrees, but with a 12" bar I wouldn't go more than 3" rake. Longer bar you can go with more rake. The short bar changes so quickly that you dont need a lot of static angle to make it work.

the one in my dads car is about 15-16" and the one in my car is about 12", so would it be okay to run a little more static angle in his bar then mine?
i know that three wheeling a car isnt necessarily always fast but some of the things it takes to make a car three wheel are what make a car fast, so.......how much angle do you have to get in a shorty bar to make it three wheel?
