Are there any chassis builders in the midwest building a car designed around a 4 link rear with LR behind?

I know many builders have the option but doenst seem like there are any cars that are spcifically known for that setup, like how the skyrocket cars are known for the clamped up 4 link it just doesnt seem like there are many known for a full floated setup.

GRT uses the Spring Behind on most of there 4 Link Cars.

Give Mark Elliot 515-832-4937 a call. He is a GRT Dealer in Webster City Iowa (Terminator Chassis). I'll have my new car the 25th of this month and will be on a 2 link, but when I do convert to a 4 bar it'll have the spring behind. I think a lot of the Dirtworks also run the spring behind.

there used to be some nice pictures on the BMS website of a blue chassis that showed the spring behind on the LR on a birdcage and the right in front, I thought Shaw cars were that way too since a lot of late models have the springs set up LR behind RR in front.

I've talked with Jerry on more than one occasion and he really likes the 4/2 with LR behind. I actually just bought a Hoffman roller and that's what I'm going to put on it. I did quite a bit of research and he seems to be one of the best, if not the best, in tuning and racing that setup.
