We have 3 wheeled with the long trailing arms and a jbar before. Put on the short arms and a short panhard and 3 wheeling is a given.

Yea, 150 on the RR, with a j-bar and both arms in the middle holes. We ran a short panhard bar, and the car stood up so high that it was undriveable. it looked cool but it wasnt fast

our car has carrera 93's on the back with 200# LR spring, and 150# on the RR. I think the trailing arms are like a 10 or 11 inch tube. Like I mentioned in my previous post we tried a short panhard, but it was too hard to control, we now run a j-bar

tdevans...what do you mean the track was junk??? we raced there (up until this year) for almost 5 years and that was one of the smoothest / nicest tracks I think anyone could ever find. What gives? I wouldn't think Bob would allow his track to go crappy! Just curious.

I didn't say that West Plains in general was junk. I love the Gibson's and their facility. What I said was THE track was junk on Saturday. Don put down some new clay to get ready for the SHO-ME 100 next weekend and it got really wet from all the rain. Therefore the track got real rutty and rough. It was very tacky, but very rough. Stricktly a one night deal, but still junk in my book.
