You may be right and you probably know a lot more about this than I do.

It seems to me that there is WAAAY more purposeful geometry going on in a four link, designed to provide control of any and all axle movement, than in a trac bar for SOA. These things are advertised to control axle wrap, period.

I think with the right combo of soft springs SOA, 37x15" tires at ~20psi, horsepower, pavement traction, locked rearend, 97" wheelbase, and a boneheaded drop clutch launch from 3mph, I can induce axle hop even with a well setup traction bar.

Sort of the same vibe as the tagline in your sig...
