What are people using for the solid bar on the long bar setups? I have a 40-41 inch pullbar and I can't find a long enough tube to use. I was wondering if people are somehow connecting two of them together? I don't have a good place to put a shorter one with out adding a bar somewhere.

the question is with a solid bar do you still want to or need to run a 90/10 shock?

One of our modifieds that we run here in OKC, we bought with a long solid pull bar on it the tube is well over 3feet long, so yes they do make a long single tube, but I dont know who makes the tube. The chassis is a White Lighting chassis. Also, we didnt run a 90/10 shock on it

On more than 3 cars i have built and tested things on like solid long top link, shorter top link, rubber biscuit or bushing top link and the spring loaded top link with either a 2 link or a swing arm i have found i like the spring loaded one better. I never could get a solid bar to work when the tracks got slick. what worked best for me and on my cars was a 1000lb spring for a swing arm car and a 600lb for the 2 link.

I ran the solid bar with out a 90/10 shock, in hotlaps i made 1 lap and the rear needle stuck and flooded carb out, in heat race it was fast as he!! track was little tacky and i couldnt get anymore forward bite. feature came around and got wrecked comin off 2 on first lap so i dont really know what it would of done on a slicker track. Although it did fell pretty good goin down the front straight and getting into 1-2. Find out more tomorrow, also i put 12 degree's of pinion in it and w/o the shock it would wheel hop a little getting in.

Too much pinion angle,all you are going to do is wear out u-joints and possibly break other parts.

it was a hyper coil and it was with a swing arm chassis and it was moving about 2-3" depending on track conditions.

I am also running the hyper coil 600/ 1200 spring on a swingarm with a afco torque link i have always felt i was close but what i have not figured out is how much movement you really need some poeple say 2inche and some say three i know you can go to stiff.I try to run 7 degrees pinion angleany thing after 7 degrees on wrap up to me is too much What do you recomment on this maybe you will understand what i am trying to say
