your gonna get alot of different opinions on this one.it all depends on the driver and the track your running.for me i think the a 4-link 4-link with the lr clamped ahead and rr floated on birdcage behind is the best.but alot of people are fast with a 4-z with the lr clamped in front.I ran that for awhile, but the 4-4 is faster for me.

King & Doug, where do you run at? Florence or Brushcreek, or even Kc or Portsmouth?

We were going to run Mudlick a week or two ago, but had trailer troubles, sounds like you guys are in my area.

I have a Champion swingarm (2-link) and run a long panhard bar (on rearend on left and on frame on right) and I just can not seem to run with the bar cars. Do you guys run a jbar or a short bar in front instead of the long bar behind? We are thinking of switching this week, but now I see you guys beating the bar cars. We won once by a good margin on a tacky/rough track, but now that it is slick, I sort of just hang on and hope for a top 4 or 5 finsih. I do not like it this way... Any help is really appreciated. (By the way, the Stealth Cars are the cars to beat at Davenport on the 1/4 mile) Thanks

What length of swing arms and spring rates are you running?

Like he said you are going to here several different opinions. Main thing is depends on the driver. We are currently running swingarm on both sides springs on the arms and my car is awesome on a slick track the slicker the faster we are. We have won the last 2 weeks out. We are running against some bad as! Prierce cars & Dirtworks. I would have to say 2nd setup would be swingarm rr & 4 bar left.
