im attempting to put an xtra-12 rear suspension in my 91 indy 500 so far i havnt had so much luck, i was woundering if any one could tell me the proper place to mount it to allow for the suspension to work properly because last time i just guessed it and when the suspesion compressed it tensioned the track allowing it to only go down a few inches, but i have an idea im going to try tonight, or if anyone has any other thoughts i would greatly appreciate them thanks Junior

My friend and want do the same thing on an 95 xcr. I would sudjest measuring a sled that came with xtra12. First measure the distance from the cog shaft and the front mounting bolt for the x dim., then down from the top of the tunnel for the y dim. once you have the front the rear should be easy just get the center to center distance good and measure down from the top again for the back. You will need to reenforce the tunnel were you drill the new holes and try to keep the drilled hole dia. tight to the bolt size, this is important. hope this helps

What I did with my old Pol was replace the shocks with a set off of a motorcycle. They were about 1" longer and had many adjustments. Since my stock shocks werewhipped they sagged bad. You could also put preload spacers under the springs to stiffer them. I know this all sounds quite shadetree but it works.
