Well? How competitive do you want to be? Speed cost money. I spent alot more experimenting with stuff than if I just raced stock. Did you ask Troyer if they would sell you all the tubing,spuds,etc, all the weld on stuff and measuments to do it yourself. I know TEO will sell any part he makes at almost any stage.

they will work. The key will be getting all of the chassis mounts in the right places for alignment and adjustments. You might be able to buy all of your rear cages and axle brackets at Lebanon Valley's swap meet. If im not mistaken I have seen 4link Troyer cars for sale. Complete rollers for around 2000, That would give you everything. Just an option.

We want to start initially with a 4-link set up(we have a friend(track champ) with one and can get a bunch of set up help)Make mounts so that they can be easily adjustable. We run paper clips so the rear suspension has got to take a pretty good beating as well..The we can hit the track swaps and know what we are looking for.
