First one is the winner of the race.



Second is second.



Third is a chassis built by someone I know that is not a hand full.
He went in the first round with Powerglide breakage. I'm surprised more people don't?



Which car looks more stable at launch?

It's amazing the twist these cars endure!

The 32 is launching hard and straight. The Camaro is twisted way out of shape; so much so it is unloading the left rear. Chevy II is doing well. Looks like a twelve point cage with tube front subframe tied together well. He could preload the four link a little better to leave level.

AF2...... It looks like the 1st and 2nd cars don't have a anti-roll device like this.



I get the feeling that you have seen these cars in person. Am I right?

Both of these cars look very well built, so I'm suprised they don't have a anti-roll device.

They all have the sway bar. Your pick is where the first 2 are locating them and have leverage beyond calculation. The 32 Ford has the points at near the axle flanges and has very little leverage along with a very good engineered chassis.

I see your point about leverage.
Right now I'm considering installing this type of sway bar. So I'm curious as to how he got it to attach closer to the axle tube ends. Is the torsion bar part of the sway bar a lot longer than the rear frame and braced to the frame with tubing? Or is the rear frame just wider in general allowing the use of a longer torsion bar allowing the arms to mount closer to the axle ends?

I might be in luck if its the 2nd one.
