Rear Suspension

Tried getting some pix of the rear suspension on the 33 Willys. Haven't seen one like this and can't find it on the net, any ideas? Would it be considered a 3 link?
Will it be okay for drag racing?

Yep, that's a three link. I've got no experience running one, they are more popular in road race and circle track than they are drag race. Mostly due to it being hard to package that third central upper link with a typical doorslammer's floor pan in the way.

Billy Shope, one of the original Chrysler engineers who formed part of the original RamChargers team, claims it is the best traction set-up period. He is considered among the very best in chassis and traction knowledge.

Thanks Eric!
Just the mention of Billy Shope was enough to convince me to use that setup.
Me and my buddy's are not serious racers we just have fun so I'm sure it will do the job. The frame was built as an asphalt car so it could get interesting. lol
