Has anyone ever tried a shorty bar [15"] behind rear, from left frame to left of pumpkin housing? Idont have enough room to go in front.Wondering if it has same effect as a front mount?

I tryed a 18 inch bar behind the rear end and had o.k luck with it so i tryed my short pinion mount bar witch is about 9 inches on the left side tube on the rear end and the car was a wheelie buggy bad off the corner it would tighten up when you picked up the gas almost instantly it was bad fast on the real dry-slick also had alot more latteral movement of the rear end which i thinked helped on the dry, the car really rolled hard on the rr. It gets more angle as the rear end is rotated under acceleration which gives you more bar angle it also should loosen you up comming in because of the rear end movement

Andykmod, are you saying that the shorty in front was better? Or was it to earatic? Would a longer front bar been more driveable, say maybe a 14"bar?

I went back to my shorty bar at the supernationals only because i bent the bracket behind the rear end. The short front mount worked alot better down there then the 18 inch bar behind did but i usually run 1/2 miles and 1/3 miles at home and loved the 18 inch behind it seemed to tighten the car up less irracticly in mid corner.It does tighten the car up a bit more under throttle because the pinion angle pulls out of the car and the rear mount is moved downward thus creating more angle in the bar
