anyone ever took a swing arm car and locked the birdcages and made a 2 link swing arm type car? just removing the rear traling arms and leaving the spring mounted on the swing arm?

It sounds like you are talking about taking a z-link car and making it a regular swing arm car. Lots of people run and are very quick.

that's right. my swing arm is a rocket one week and next week it is junk. we go back and forth. i'm looking for something easier to tune and more consistant from week to week. got any ideas on what type of tracks like z link swing arm cars? 2 link swing arm cars?

Junk the swing arms and put a two-link on,simple and fast.

The z-link sure is fast on dry slick.

we have a very fast swing arm car, it seems to do good on all types of track conditions, our car also favors softer springs on the rear
