we run a dw8 four bar with z-link option on the rr....i normally will run the four bar but have tried the z-link, only thing i noticed with it is it made the car pretty loose getting in....do you guys switch back and forth with it and if so what track conditions do you switch..is it better gettin off on the slick, never tried it there..the guys i asked also said to run it as low as possible on the chassis mount...if its loosening it up gettin in i may try it on a heavy track since i usually run a tight car and experience a push in that situation..any thoughts?? preciate it..

The z-link was designed to keep rollsteer to a minimum. I feel this is the way to go on a rough track because when you go bouncing through holes, you are not inducing steer into the chassis that results from suspension travel. As a result the car will be more controllable.

if you do it right you will not loose much roll steer, use the z link on rough tracks, also put alot of angle in the rear rr link and it will give some good roll steer, and free up the car with more bite than the four bar.
