( 1 ) 90/10 to right
BITE:
150 lb. to 200 lb. LR bite
CHANGES TO HELP PERFORMANCE:
  • Car too loose on entry and tight when you pick up the throttle go to a pair of 250's on the rear.
  • Smooth flatter tracks go to 350 lb. spring on the RF
PANHARD BARS:
Standard Long J-Bar 24-1/2" to 24-3/4"
  • Bottom hole on pinion, and 9-1/2" to bottom of bracket on frame side.
  • This position and panard bar style is good in most track conditions, especially when track has any traction, rubbered down or tacky
Straight Left Side Panard Bar 17-1/4" to 17-1/2"
  • Second hole on pinion from bottom, and 8" from bottom of frame to bottom of bracket
  • This bar works well on smoother, flat, slick track conditions. Creates side bite and forward bite.
  • This bar also will cause car to be more eratic and make it difficult, do not use when there is traction in race track.
New Seven Rod ( Right Rear 6th Coil in 90/10 Position )
  • Use only when there is a loose condition on entry, when all other set-ups don't cure loose entry problems. Shock is a 70/10 small body with a 550 spring when setting car up with 7 rod installed. Put shock in top hole on the rear end bracket. Make sure car is at ride height and set spring with no preload ( run adjuster cone up till it touches spring ).
  • This set-up works well on most momentum banked tracks
RUNNING SPRING BEHIND ON LEFT REAR:
Run spring behind axle on all track conditions, except on rubber down or extremely tacky tracks.
DOUBLE SHOCK ON LEFT REAR:
We do not do this but some people like this option. This set-up has the real shock on the front side of axle, and no valve shock and spring behind. This setp up will calm down movement of the car. This is not a cure for the erractic movements, but will tone it down.
