Q & A

What's in the Box

  • "Forward mount" design provides increased pull bar angle and forward bit during axle wrap-up and chassis lift over conventional mounting positions centered on axle
  • -8 degree pinion angle allows torque link to be mounted 4" ahead and 12" above axle centerline
  • Forward mounting reduces axle wrap-up from 25-33 percent, which provides consistent corner entry handling during axle wrap-down and improves U-joint life. 
  • Multiple holes for mounting torque link and dampener shock
  • 3/8" holes allow stiffener braces to be added on high horsepower applications
  • Laser cut design fits most rear ends. (Some trimming of brackets may be needed depending on housing configurations)

Garage Sale - AFCO Two-Way Torque Link

This AFCO Two-Way Torque Link is engineered for "open wheel modifieds," where rules will not allow two torque absorbing devices. It utilizes a unique dual-action retainer that allows one spring to be used for acceleration and deceleration torque control. This component was designed to aid in corner entry, especially under slick track conditions. Provides the advantage of a six coil suspension using only five coils as well as excellent forward bite under all track conditions. 

Uses 5" O.D. by 6-5/8" springs.

Springs sold separately. Subtract 16" from finished center to center to get 3/4" tube length required. 

  • Built-in deceleration control
  • Eliminates torque arm and 6th coil
  • Sealed bushing slide assembly provides bind-free performance under all track conditions

AFCO 21207X Three Stage Torque Link

The "three stage" torque link provides adjustable progressive action for ultimate torque control and traction. Torque is absorbed by the coil spring to provide the initial forward bite. As engine torque increases, the poly bushings engage to increase torque to the rear tires. Engagement point of the poly bushings can be adjusted independently from the coil spring to allow for changing track conditions. 

Due to its unique twin shaft design the engine side and brake side operate independently. This allows corner entry and exit to be tuned separately. Bushing/spring pre-load is always maintained. Also the brake bushing works more effectively because it's not loaded with engine spring pre-load. The car turns better during decelleration as a result.
