Anyone running a reverse swing arm on the right rear?Heard that it gets good side bite with a 4 bar left rear,The swing arm goes towards the back of the car from the bird cage and the top bar goes towards the front like a brake floater bar(15 to 25 degree upwards angle).

willy kraft out of lakefield minn runs this on his cars, have seen many drivers in his cars run this, seems to work well on any kind of racing surface, for more technical answers you may want to call willy.

My old car ran a z link with top bar forward and lower tothe rear with sping on separate swingarm worked real well. Think about floating my rr sping on my new car this year.

Thanks for the info guys,Was thinking trying a reverse Zlink with the spring on a slider mounted on the front of the birdcage on the rightrear with the brake bracket mounted on the birdcage also.Was really looking for links or angles of the bars people have used.

on willy's cars the spring is mounted on the rearward facing lwr arm ,it is a short bar, with the upper link angled uphill around 17 degrees, remember the right side upper angle will decrees with body roll.
