just swapped suspention over to 2 link on the rear end...
running springs on top of rear housing, lr trailing arm has about 20 degrees uphill angle, rr has about 5 deg uphill, long pull bar with 900 pound spring with a quarter inch pre load, going to r un 7 degrees pinion angle
spring rates are this

pro wb-76's across the front
carerra 3193's on the back-(same as 35/30s or 30/30's)
long panhard bar behind rear end, bolt going into bracket on rearend for bar is one inch below rearend tube, mount on chassis is 2 inches above rearend tube
what are some good starting numbers for percents on a limited mod, track is medeocre as far as wetness, its sometimes dry, sometimes wet, sometimes tacky, i'd probably say on the safe side it is the way most tracks are reight before they go dryslick...
running a 5.43 rear gear, looking for starting ride heights, percentages...
stub like what the jet uses... custom performance should know this car it was mike olears xtreme i put a 2 link on it...
should i trail the rear end or leave it straight up...
3 offset on rr, 3 offset on lf
2 off on rf and 2 off on lr...

Start with the rearend square in the car. The pullbar spring is too stiff for a 2 link, needs to be softer like 600 or 700lb.

If you cant get any info on the Extreme chassis since it is similar to an early Jet car i would run Jet ride heigths and run 56-58% rear to start and the rest looks good to start out with. Why did you change it from the swing arm to the 2 link?
