by no means the fastest but the most predictable would be a leaf spring set up. But Id say take your time and go with a 3 or 4 bar setup to be copetative or maybe a z link but there alot more to learn

3 Link by far the most consistent and reliable rear suspension you can have besides leafs.

Mono-leaf is the easiest. Three link is close. Learn about link adjustments including the panhard bar would be the advantage of starting with a three link. It would be a good transition to a more complex link system. You would be better in the long run starting there I think.

3 Link by popular demand I still have questions about spring placement different J bars and placement and the popular pull bar questions but thats a good starting place.Are there any real good set up books? Any input will be appreciated.....towman

Towmandan, If you are looking for a good modified that works great and is not hard to work with, Then i would highly recommend you get a Racemart FR-1 leaf chassis. These cars are fast and easy to set up, and are proven winners. Randy is a great guy to deal with and they build good cars. They are located in Memphis Missouri.

I have to agree with MD, Mono Leafs are probably the easiest to work with.

Our track has been open 7 years 7 track champions all using mono-leaf gives you the most consistant car night in night out

They are the most consistent, hard to get way off. Of course the only thing running at SOS up to a couple of years ago was 2&3 links and monos. I don't think there is anything that isn't out there now. LOL
The diversity has made things more interesting and fun I think.

In a B-Mod I would have to say a leaf car would work better for the simple reason you don't have the horse that the A Mods do. The leaf car would be more consistent. Then again Webster is most of the time dry slick and you could use the bars to load the car more. I still say a leaf car would work better in a B-Mod
