I have been running 8.5 Outlaw all year. I have 1.30 60FT. Nick B is running the same kinda car same motor same NOS same tire and gears and he's 1.22 60FT. Do ladder bars just work better with small tires?????
You can only do so much with a ladder bar and they are much more forgiving than 4 link when it comes to the optimum adjustment. A 4 link car should hook better than a ladder bar car 10 outta 10 times if it's adjusted correctly. You need to take into consideration the adjustment on your car would be different with the 8.5x26 than it would be with a 10x29.5 and adjust for the tire on your car. If you have someone adjusting it that is used to messing with "big" tires then you need to step back and re-evaluate the settings based on your combination.
Well if I can get it to do better or same as Nicks 1.22 60ft on the 8.5s ladder bar set up we will be doing somthing right.Ladder bars just work better and are more forgiving than the four link. guys are running 1.0 60 ft with four links on 10.5 tires in outlaw 10.5 and guys are running 1.1's with half the tire in x275 and ladder bars. The post made earlier in this thread is right, there are more ways to screw up a four link..
