Cosmo,What kind of mod. do you have? Teo Bicknell,?? I was looking at a friends mod. and am trying to get him to go with a 4-link. I think you would be better off with a 5th coil set up if you can find the room. You sit in the center of the car though, this makes it very tight. I think you should move the panhard bar to the left side of the frame and then put the tourqe arm on the right side of the rear end. This would allow you to be more like a late model set up.The other thing is do you run a live axle? If so this would be even better. I know troyer did some researck with the 4-links years ago but could not get them to work.

We have a 2000 teo going to be updated to a low rod and a 04 teo low rod. We just run a standard QC with the 3rd link on a slider. See the problem with the 5th coil is, to get a 32-36Ē torque arm in the car it has to travel under the seat through the dog house next to the trany up to the bell housing next to your right foot. Kind of tricky. I think thatís the way to go. Right now they use a rubber biscuit on a slider for the 3rd link that I think itís a little to ridged for dirt but its working. The problem is these cars donít handle like a sprint, late model or an imca mod Not even close; and the teams that have tried different setups usually donít run them long enough to work right or there something wrong elsewhere in the car.
