4 Link dragster, Measuring from the bottom of the midplate to the floor, what do you like to see the ride height at with the driver in the car?

I was told about 4.5 inches, just seems awful high to me but thats why I am asking

We run our Americans at 4.25, mainly because I like a little more bottom bar angle.

Remember this is with the driver weight in the car.

My American car is setup. with the following. Again it is a single shock swing arm.

ground to the lower bolt at the back of the four link- 7 1/4"
ground to front lower bolt- 6 3/4"
ground to the bottom of the midplate in-between- 4 3/8" to 4 1/2"
pinion angle - negative 1.5 degrees


That's with the driver in the car.

hope this helps.
