Running a metric car with nova lowers and pinto spindles on a 3/8 mile high banked track that goes slick at feature time we have
LF-850 Left side-53.5%
RF-950 Cross-51%
LR-300 Rear-60%
RR-250 Left rear bite-117#
Total weight-2627 with driver

LF-75 Left rear swingarm-15 uphill
RF-76 Left back bar-15 uphill
LR-94 Right rear swingarm-7 uphill
RR-94 Right back bar-10 uphill

Shorty bar left side in front of rear second hole from bottom of pinion 3" of rake.

Just wanting opinions on if this sounds like a pretty good starting point never run swingarms always 2-link thought we would try something new this year. thanks

hi , we ran a zink in my car last year and we had a 225 and 175. but my swingarms were short one, when i went to longer swingarms , like the ones from day motorsports, we had to go up in spring rates, we tried the 300 and the 250 and it seemed to work good, hope it helps
