I was wondering what the down the middle of the road set up is on a DIRT mod as far as total weight, percentages, and spring rates front and rear. I know many use torsion bars in the rear. I'd like to know what the actual rate would work out to not the bar diameter. I've also noticed you guys run big angles on the rear radius rods on the torsion bar rears. What kind of angle do you run left and right. Any input would be appreciated, I would like to apply it to an all torsion bar vintage super modified I run in the midwest. Thanks!

You can go to WWW.TEOPRO.COM for a basic set up. Then you go to WWW.PROSHOCKS.COM and click on thier calculator and then click on torsion bar spring rates. You will need to know your bar dia. and arm lengths. Hope these can help. RACER
