I was wondering about mounting a short panhard bar behind the pinion. Anybody try this set up? I want to put a slotted piece on the housing that will allow 1/4" adjustments up or down. I would think that mounting it on the back will result in less fluctuation in the roll center hight from pinion climb, hopefully making the car more stable and predictable? Any thoughts on this?

I run one on the back with a sloted mount and like it, my bar was 19in though. You don't need much angle in the bar. As for the fluctuation in RC height, it lowers it as the rear end wraps up and it tends to tighten up the car on the throttle and loosen you up on entry.
