were new to mods. are car has 4 link on left side and z link on right side. we were thinking of switching the right side to 4 link also just see how it works out. witch set up works better? we rase at a 1/4 mile banked tracked. it is usually black by the time we race and sometimes gets pretty rough. this is the first year for are driver so we are all just learning. any help is grateful. thanks

switched to 4 link 3 weeks ago and i wont go back, dont go radical on bar angles. lowers at 0 degrees and upers at about15-20 and hammer down.

when the track goes black and slick what do you run your rr top bar at? I put mine to 11 degrees on top and the bottom is + 1 degrees,does this seem alright?

if you have the rr all the way up doesn't want to be loose off? if the rr is topped out where is your lr top bar? a tacky track we run lr at 13 and rr at 15 degrees.slick i go to lr 17 and rr 11 degrees.it seems a little tight but has good forward.

mine start out at 15 degrees on both and when it slicks off i put the lr up 1 more hole and the lr lower up 1 hole to add rear steer.

4 link definitly if the track stays smooth.a z-link might be better on the rr if the track gets rougher.for the four link though,when the track is slick i run the rr upper bar at 15 deg and the lr upper at 20 deg.the lowers i run both at 5 deg uphill. If the car is loose i lower the rr lower bar 1 hole and if the track has alot of bite i raise the lr lower bar a hole.I never change upper bar angles.

thanks rpm20 and nyimcamod8t,it doesn't seem like i'm too far off,i have never moved my lowers..lr 5 uphill and lr 1 degree uphill,if slick and smooth they should be neg.or just the rr.

Are these setups floating the right side and locking the left side? ~slowly gathering info & parts to convert a 2-link

my car is clamped on lr and the right rear is clamped with either the spring on top or in front,only the bars are floated.

i run my 4 link with both sides on the birdcages lr behind and rr in front . it hooks good and i like it. i really dont mess with the lower bars but may start by raising the lr lower bar when it slicks off.
