I was considering my options for next season. I definantly want to go to a 4 link with the clamp bracket in front of the left rear. My car is a 2 link right now. I was considering the different rr options I have. Can some one tell me the advantanges and disadvantages of my 3 rr options and car charactristics with the 3 different set ups. I run on mostly 1/3 mile tracks and they range from hooked up and rough to smooth and dry, so I want something that is going to be consistant on a wide range of tracks with the right adjustments. Thanks in advance for any input any one has.

i think 4bar is the way to go on smooth tracks. But the best all around I think would be the z-link with spring on top of rear end(not alot of rear steer good for rough) but the 2 link would probly be the most consistant for all track conditions because you dont have hardly any rearend movement which is a plus if the track is rough, and i know some USMTS cars use it and they run on all different tracks so it must be good all around.

I run on 1/4 tracks all different conditions with 4bar spring behind on hook and right side swing-arm z-link. When track gets rough i just add stagger and hold on usually top 5 or close to it. Slick track car is awsome.

Just my opinion, hope it helps

We like the swing arm z-link really well, slicker tracks the car still maitains alot of bite.

I am thinking about trying a 2 link RR, just to be able to maintain more corner speed on one particular track we run at.
