Author Topic:   Need advice on right-chassis mounted panhard?

There shouldn't be a big change in handling if your running the bar almost level. I like the setup if for no other reason it puts the bar in tension which is much safer.
Other wise the car may get tighter in the middle since the r/c will drop as the car rolls to the right, vs raising if it was left side frame mounted.

Running your the long bar connected to the chassis on the right is norm for an asphalt setup. If you're always dry slick this may work better for you. You may want to look closer at other asphalt setup options as well.

I also am trying this setup. If you put more angle in the bar will it still increase side bite?

pan hard ba mouned on left ive car a machanical loadingof rear end.
mounted on right is a smoother transition and not as irratic. try and keep angls close to 4.5 up or down for best results.

We tried our panhard bar mounted to the frame on the right for the feature last weekend. The track was very slick as usual. This tightened the car up through the turns, but we seemed to loose some of our forward bite coming off compared to the bar mounted to the frame on the left. Is this a trade-off we will have to live with or is there some other change we could have made? The bar was mounted about 1" above center of rear end on left and about 1" below
center of rear end on right.
