Thats probably more driver preference than anything. I used to run a J-bar now I'm running a straight bar.

The J-bar seemed alot smoother to me. The short bar really hikes the car up. The short bar seems to provide more side bite. I ran the j-bar on a high banked track, now I'm running a track with little banking and I really like the short bar better. If I were you I would try both and see which one you like better.

I run mine all the time. I am thinking about running at the high-banked track we used to run, sometime next year and I will probably have to go back to the J-bar for that track. But on my usual flat 1/4 mile track I never change it.
