IS HAVING THE PULLROD ON A 2-LINK CAR AT TO MUCH OF AN ANGLE, SAY 20 DEGREES OR MORE WITH NO 90/10 OR BRAKE FLOATERS GOING TO LOOSEN THE ENTRY WHEN ON THE BRAKES?THIS IS WHAT MY CAR ACTS LIKE...OR FEELS LIKE. WHAT CAN I DO TO CURE THIS PROBLEM?DON'T WANT TO CHANGE THE SCALING,BUT AM OPEN TO SUGGESTIONS,I'M THINKING IF I RAISE THE FRONT AND LOWER THE REAR OF THE UPPER LINK IT WON'T UNLOAD SO MUCH,ALSO THINK I SHOULD LOWER THE REAR OF THE LOWER LINKS TO PUT MORE ANGLE IN THEM TO GET MY INSTANT CENTER BACK UP TO TRY TO HAVE CLOSE TO THE SAME AMOUNT OF ANTI-SQUAT.LATER LITTLEMAN

i run 15 deg all the time and have tryed 20 but seemed to be looser going in and off. just diddnt stay hooked up. i run 15 deg on 1/2 and 3/8 but when either track slicks up i take angle out of it by lowering it on rearend or raising at the front on chassis.this was also without brake floaters, but i have heard from several that you can run more angle in the pullbar when you run brake floaters. floaters will help the car set in the corners harder depending on the angles they are set at. if you dont have room for them on both sides at least try to get one on the right rear, you will notice a difference with just one when braking and entering the corner.

CUSTOM PERFORMANCE,WHEN YOU PUT THE TOP LINK AT 15 DEGREES.WHAT ANGLE DO YOU RUN THE LOWERS AT?I'M THINKING THAT PUTTING MORE ANGLE IN THE LOWERS WILL PROMOTE BITE.DON'T WANT TO RUN BRAKE FLOATERS BECAUSE,WHY PUT MORE ANGLE IN THE BRAKE FLOATERS TO TIGHTEN ENTRY WITH THE REAR BRAKES,AIN,T THE REAR BRAKES SUPPOSED TO BE USED TO LOOOSEN THE CAR UP?MY CAR WORKED BETTER WITHOUT THEM LAST YEAR,THINKING THEIR A KIND OF A CRUTCH FOR OTHER CHASSIS PROBLEMS.THANKS FOR THE FEEDBACK,LITTLEMAN

I HAVE RACED WITH AND WITHOUT BRAKE FLOATERS. I FEEL THEY ARE A BENIFIT TO SOME DRIVERS AND OTHERS CANT TELL THE DIFFERENCE WITHOUT THEM. JUST LIKE SOME OF YOUR REAR SUSPENSIONS, SOME CAN MAKE ANYTHING WORK, OTHERS CAN ONLY MAKE ONE TYPE OF SUSPENSION WORK,
