With your car having the ladder bars, the rear end already acts as the anti-roll bar. If you are having excessive body roll, then be looking for broken brackets, twisting axle tubes, or other...

With your MPH, it looks like your 60ft times should be in the mid to low 1.3's, so yes it is a little slow. You should probably move the IC out to at least 42", because right now you are even shorter...

Your statement says 24" in front of the rear end centerline, but do you mean 42" because you would almost have to be in the same holes with 21" 4-link bars? If it is indeed about 42" then that is...

Charles,
The difference on the roll out of the slicks will move yours on up to 18% slippage. The slippage isn't always about how old the converter is, but how efficient it is. Age can make them...
