I recently installed a torque link on my 96 harris,I couldnt get the torque arm to hook up we run on very dry slick track.Harris does not have much info on torque links. so I ask for some input from fellow racers.My problem is I cant hook up coming off the corners.My current setup is. 50% cross 51 Ls 61%rear with 100lbs lead 650 lf spring 750 rf " 200 across back 76 shocks across front 94 " " back short bar ls diff 800 lb torque spring travel is 2.5" 3" stagger rear 5.43 diff. could be to low ratio Iam currently getting app. 3.5" rr shock travel Question,what effect does the location of the control arms have with a torque link Thanks Rick

raising the front of the trailing arm increases anti-squat on that side. Typical harris setup is both bars in middle hole but alot of people run the lr in the top hole and rr in bottom hole when it gets slick. Also most harris cars have the lr spring in front of axle and rr behind to add wedge under accel. Both those changes should tighten exit, also you may try more diagonal.

wfo what would happen if you put the left rear spring behind the axle I read on your post were the spring was behind the axle on the right what affect would it have william
