Do I need a 4 Link with a 347 Stroker or not, some guys at the track said I do and others said I dont. I need an answer so I can be competitive. thanks
Ever look at a true 4-link cars suspension? When you look at a tube chassis car equipped with a 4-link you will notice that the lower control arm is horizontal with the ground while the upper control arm is angled down. These angles are critical for locating the Instant Center for Drag Racing for the best hook and best stability which is why there are so many different holes to choose from. The Instant Center position DOES make a difference.
Team Z and BaselineSuspensions.com both make upper control arm kits that relocate the axle side mounting points of the upper control arms to correct the factory angle and make it more like a true 4 link car,then you can adjust the ride height for your setup to get the IC closer to where it needs to be...Stock Mustangs were not made for Drag Racing and have the upper arms horizontal with the ground and the lower arms pointing upward, just the total opposite of what is needed for a Drag Car. If you are serious about Drag Racing then you should be concerned with how your chassis and suspension is set up as a complete system. The Mustang platform is a great starting point but finish what you started when you decided to do some drag racing and get the suspension set up like a drag car should be.
It happens everyday......1000 plus hp & stock suspension......uh ya right:rollgrin:
On the bottle w/ 300 shot...... i am close to [email protected] the wheels......
Stock style suspension......
yes sir it most certainly is......"stock-type"..there's quite a difference.....
about a 4000 dollar difference......:yup:
I'm not disputing the HP, what I question is somebody wanting to do it with a "stock-type suspension".
