I went from a dual spring upper link to a 32" torque arm mounted on the left side of the pinion. I tried it this past week with three hard rubbers above and one below, I had great bite when I picked up the throttle, but it gave up too early down the straights. Would replacing the rubbers with a spring help prolong the bite ? I don't have room for a very tall spring, I was thinking about a 500# rate ? Am I anywhere close ? Thanks for any input.

I run a long torque arm using the middle or 36" setting on 1/4 and 3/8 mile tracks. I run a 11 spring/slider 225# spring with a 5300 shock. I have had great luck with this set up, great forward bit.
