I suggest Cal-Tracs they are by far the best setup out there, E-Mail Alex I think he is a dealer for them.

I like Cal -Tracks for strip only and the C&E slid-a-links for double duty cars.

My son has slide-a-links and they work well for street/strip use. Very easy to adjust.

I'm using CalTracs with around 500hp and a 4 speed. My 60' times are low 1.5's with a couple of 1.50's. They have worked quite nicely and CalTrac has been very helpful in setting up my combination. I could very easily get it in the 1.4's with a good clutch and flywheel setup. But it's not free so will have to wait until after I get the car painted. Current best 1/8 mile ET is 6.95 at 99 MPH. Later!
