super comp-4 link or solid suspended?

I am planning on building a super comp dragster chassis within the next year and to me it sounds like a 4-link suspension is the way to go but I've heard that 75% of super comp dragsters just have a solid suspension. Is the 4 link the way to go or are there any other alternatives? thanks BF

4 link is latest technology. There are plenty of deadly consistent S/C Dragsters out there without 4 link. If that is the class you are gonna run, I think the right electronics will be more important than a 4 link chassis.

The new suspended chassis' are way easier on your backside on a rough track. They're a good bit more expensive though.

Crossovers, delay boxes, data aquisition, electronic throttle stop......all the stuff you're supposed to use to make a 7.00 car run 7.50. Don't forget the weatherstation!
