What type of Spring loaded pull bar works better? the short one that hooks up by where the damping shock hooks up. Or the longer one that hooks up by the drive shaft loop? On a 3/8 mile dirt track mostly dry-slick with slow corners and fast straights (Garnertown)

I have run 2 types and I like the specialty type biscuit pull bar it works great on dry slick. The spring bars are ok but to many workin parts.

The one I use is the type specialty uses on there cars but I thinks its built by allstar.

That is the piece I like it very much on the dry. As for pre load I just snug the jam nut down, I adjust how it affects the car by movin it up and down by the front mount on my car.

When i put a simalar pullbar in my car i had to take some angle out of the pullbar so that it would not lift the chassis to far up. I also had to be just a hair more careful with the throttle btw we also run hoosiers.

Well my car is A WADE MOON car, It has swing arm rear sus, and I run Hoosier dirt bozzes. I also run Bilstien shocks on it. With that Biscuit piece on I start out the night with it about level then I pretty much drop it to my bottom mounting hole, Plus I do some RR and RF shock changes, and some wheels offset changes.

Be careful pullin off the 90 10 shock. I tried that also I too thought the car felt better. But with out that shock on there, it tends to do some destructive things to the car. I started out racin under IMCA for 2 years then the track I run it changed to WISSOTA. I ran 3 types of torque links. I like the one from allstar the best, All the guys I run with think that piece is magic.

Yeah I had the driveline pop out, I had the front torque link mount ripped apart ,and I had one of those afco bird cages ripped in two. Right now I am leadin the points series at my home track. I would rather finish the race instead of be on the trailer broke. I just learned to adjust my drivin style to the car and to the track. Because I used to run 2 90-10s on my car when I was runnin those McCrearys, That worked on dry slick, but now I run hoosiers and one is all thats needed!
