The birdcages would have to be locked to the housing or the housing will just slip in the birdcages.

We run a setup similar to that only the birdcages are locked. basically a 3-link swingarm. car works great on tacky, dry slick, and real rough tracks. really anywhere you unload the car its going be pretty good. the only thing about this setup that is a downfall is, the car seems to be very sensative to adjustments. other then that its a heck of a good setup and really i'm surprised i don't see more cars like it. OOOPS I just let the cat out of the bag. i bet i see a few more next year. HAHAHA

AZRACE, I am running the left control arm in the top hole and the right one in the 2nd hole. I use a dirt works rubber pull rod. (the monty bar). Put the soft rubber in for a dry slick track and use the medium rubber for the heavy fast track. This pull bar is mounted left of the drive shaft down by the drive shaft loop. about 36 inches long. The setup I mentioned above worked very well on heavy fast tracks. I have been running this set up for awile. The futher i got in to this year we really got the car working very well. Adding rear percent makes the car probbaly as fast as the front runners on dry slick, but i think a little more tweeking,it will be the leader. (hopefully!!!!). This is a Sardeson car with a metric fornt stub, nova lower control arms.
