Rear suspension? Truck-arm, 3-link, or 4-link?

Here is an open ended question, looking at the differnet types of driving from street/strip, full drag, weekend auto-cross to full road race. Everyone knows that drag guys love 4-link but opinons very with road race cars. Some like truck- arm others leaf spring or 3-link. I don't know if there is a correct answer but what would be th best choice for a weekend autocross car or full road racer?

I think the quad link not to be confused with the four link.May be able to add a antiroll bar and have a supperior street and strip qualities.I kinda wish I went this way instead of a four link with a diagonal track locator.Look at the components from DSE and go back from there.They are some what pricey but you get what you pay for.If yo want a bumpy ride go the way I did I do like it for going straight but thats it.

Poke around on here. You may find some good deals. Check out what some of the road course racers are using. http://www.race-cars.com/carsales/ch...06036376ss.htm

the 3 link with a watts linkage is the current popular favorite, but i want to see how a truck arm setup really compares. the truck arm setup is similar to a torque arm setup- which is also pretty popular these days- but it has 2 long links instead of the single torque arm setup.

you don't plan sincerity.
you have to make it up on the spot.

wanna hear about 20 years ago when i was too smart to know any better?
