looking to build a new z-link car for next year and was looking for input. am wondering what bar angle/length most of you are running, what style/length panhard bar, and a good starting point on spring rates, etc. any other tips/suggestions would be appreciated. thanks in advance

I can tell you the set up info on the new GRT modifieds. They run a swing arm z-link. The lower swing arm is 15" center to center and it starts at about 5 degree of upward angle. This is the same for both sides. The upper link running rearward is 30" center to center and runs level, same for both sides. They utilize a long panhard bar and start with it at center of housing and have about 2-3" split running upward to the chassis mount on the left of the frame. I can't remember the spring rates, but you can see them if you go to their website. These cars seem to run real fast out here in California, but I'm not sure how they run in other parts of the country. I have never driven one myself. The short lower links with the static angle would definitely react real fast. Just food for thought but not an endorsement.

I race primarily at Kings Speedway in Hanford, this year. I'm the #54. I used to race at Watsonville and San Jose the last few years before I moved to Visalia last year. Are you going to make the open show race at Bakersfield this week end? It's a "run what you brung" show. Should be interesting. I'm contemplating putting a wing on my modified, but we'll see what happens.
