I use to run a push bar....didnt work on tacky or rough tracks...would pin the car up as soon as i got on the gas...was a rough ride. If the track was smooth and super dry would be the only way i would run one...i took the same car and put a pullbar on and love it!

No reason why a push bar can't work as well as a pull bar if you have the room to make it long enough. D&M ran for years in their cars. I would say it needs to be at least 20" long not to be jumpy.

Yes D&M did run them for a few years...maybe 2 and no longer do any of the house cars run them. I would say that if you could get a spring one then it would tune a bit better...but all they had was a rubber one when i bought my D&M wishbone with the pushbar. With a tacky heavy track like we have, there is no need for it.....i got the nic name bobble head when i had mine...the car would hope all over the place and any rut on the straight turned to a jump! Just giving my 2 cents!

Okay, I know that a push bar will actually lift the back of the car when there is bite, but with know bite wich I am luck to see a track on a scale of 1 - 10 I would rate the tracks I see as 2.5 (10 being a bitty track)anyways my car doesn't really seem to get on the bars, unless I throw the car in the corner extremely hard, but then it goes away as soon as I hit the straightaway. Maybe i,m bot doing something right or something? the push bar has 4 black rubber bushings I belive with 1/4" preload
