We just put a 12" long shorty bar on our car saturday night, we ran a short 1/4 mile thats been kicking our collective butts this year. The car loved it, it finnally started to turn in. Dont know why i didnt do this along time ago.

I shaved our lap times down .3 ths a lap off the leaders, from a full second and a half at the first part of the year. I figure with the proper gear we'll be all over them.

Anyway, our next race is on the Big tri oval, do these shorty bars behave pretty well on a big tracks? or should i put the J-bar back on to keep it smooth.

I could use more turn in on the Big track, so i was thinking it may help?

Any thoughts?

Thanks, Krom.

Short Panhard all the way... If you get it on there right, it'll plant the whole right side of the car. 12" is longer than I like to see ran, we've been running 10" heim to heim, even 9" heim to heim.
