    Default Road Course/Top Speed Suspension

    Hey everybody,
    I know I'm a bit different seeing as I'm not going too hard for the 1/4 but more towards road racing, but I figure variety is the spice!

    Anyways, I was wondering if anyone here had any experience with the different rear suspension offerings for the 1st and 2nd generation Firebird?

    The chassis this is bolting into is a custom tube-frame with built in cage set up for A-arm fronts and stock mounting locations in the rear for ease of part availability.

    Mainly I'm trying to decide between:
    Modified Leaf
    4-link setup
    Watts Link
    Torque Arm
    or
    Truck Arm

    I'm looking at running this car in SCCA autocross and large track events, along with the HotRod Top Speed Challenge and even Bonneville.

    I'd like to see what everyone thinks, and if anyone has experience it'd be appreciated being passed down.

    Thanks!
