Does anyone have any experience with the setup from MiniMania for 1/4
spring cars?? The rod mounts to a bracket mounted at the very back of the
transmission tunnel, and the other end to a bolt on one side of the axle. The
setup creates a 'triangle' with the rear axle preventing it form moving form
side to side. It looks like it should work, and it's fairly cheap, but I was
wondering if there were any problems with this setup??
