  • Ion RL Traction Bars

    Don't want to sound like a nub here, but...has anyone heard of these?

    ION TRACTION BARS

    I don't want to buy them as I can make them myself probably. Just curious if they are a decent idea. From what the info says it's a sure thing, but of course I take that with a grain of salt. It seems like a decent idear though. Any naysaying, thoughts, bitches, gripes or complaints?

        I dunno, I haven't been on the RL forums since they treated me like second rate trash for working on a 2.2L. The link is up there mate. Its in CAPS under the initial paragraph.

          it appears to basicaly be anti hop bars that rwd cars use.

          curious tho. wonder what the effects on an independant suspension would be. as most anti hop bars or lader bars what ever are usualy on a solid rear axle

Pressures and stresses of all kinds thermal and mechanical loading across the board escalate to extreme levels. A Chevrolet 5.7-liter LS1 V8 with this much specific power (horsepower per cubic inch) would be making 2,137 hp

              Honestly wasn't thinking about the S-series...just thinking about the Ion chassis as it has those style LCA's. Dunnoo, might be some tomfoolery and shenanigans abound.

                2 of the redline guys in my area bought a set of them, I'll be installing them. I'll try to get pictures and a decent write-up on them.

                Josh not sure if s-series can use the same ones, but I bet we can build them.

                  Let me know how they work and throw me a write-up on it. Hopefully this will help down the road when I start putting some numbers down.

                    LOL. I've been mocking up a set of those for the S car, and the Ions.

                    $275 is ridiculous for e-bay...you could make that for much less.

                    The S cars are difficult. They have no bolt area on the lower control arm. I tried using the tie rod end and connecting to the rear cradle bolts, but the tires rubbed at full turn....still working on something.

                      i purchased a pair, but they have yet to be installed. there are these crazy strong ball joints on teh ends of the bars that still allow some 7 inches of wheel traval. quite a few people on the RL forums have them on, and are reporting some seriouse results.... im talking 4-7k rpm launches with no hop at all, just spin. and they have posted pics of the solid strips of rubber left on the pavement from such launches. i am excited as hell to get these installed... as some of you know, me and launching dont get along [img]{SMILIES_PATH}/rolleyes.gif[/img]

                        what about making a bracket to fit on the lower control arm.

                          sombody else said the same thing, then they priced those joints, and it turned out they were some 50 bucks a piece.
