What effect does it have if you move the torque link to the left or right of centerline on the rear housing? Does it matter if they have any angal from the front mount to the rear, its on a pull bar that is 35" long and angaled downhill at 20 deg and over to the left a littal.

Whichever tire its closet too at the housing will be more effected. I have used it as a tuning tool by making adjustments at the track and it definitely makes a difference. More angle equals-earlier traction but will give out faster. Less angle equals-less traction to start but will last longer. The adjustments on my car allow me to have either 15 or 20 degrees of angle. 15 always worked better for me but 20 wouldn't be out of line.

I always start mine at the center line and move it to left as the track goes dry. The further you move it to left the more the car will bite, I only move mine mabey 1-2" depending on how dry it goes and you can really tell the difference.
