The short pull bar reacts faster, it will change angle faster than a longer bar.
The differences you will see are the short pull bar will react faster, the longer one iwll make the car smoother.
the longer pull bar(like some guys run 42 inch ones), begins to react similar to a 5th coil in that it reacts slow.
also the short one will give you more instant bite, but the longer one will hold bite longer.
side note, on the longer ones especially make sure it is strong, most regular swedge tube ones that are like 40 inches long will flex when you get on and off the gas.

Zero is correct, 2 weeks ago we took the checherd flag and when set my car down off of trottle we bent our pullbar rod over double. Made the car turn hard right into the wall but I was happy we won. My Pullbar is 43'' long I am using a thick wall tube now.
