Competition Engineering Wheel-E-Bar Axle Mounting Bracket
As tire technology and horsepower levels progressed over the years, racers have experimented with different ways to combat the wheelstanding problem. Most of the original designs consisted of merely bars or leaf springs that were welded directly to the rear end housing, hoping that they would prevent the front of the car from rising too high. One of the major problems with these early designs is that they caused the rear tires to unload resulting in a loss of traction.
Competition Engineering recognized this problem long ago and developed a series of Wheel-E-Bars designed to limit and control big wheelstands without unloading the rear tires. We accomplish this by utilizing an axle housing mounted bracket that allows the Wheel-E-Bar to react instantaneously with rear housing movement. As the rear housing rotates, the natural rubber wheels come in contact with the track. The shock of this contact is absorbed by both the lower aluminum struts and the coil spring upper struts which keep the tires from unloading. As the housing continues to rotate more and the front end begins to lift, the coil springs on the upper struts start to compress. The more that the springs are compressed, the more force they exert against the housing rotation, eventually overcoming the rising force of the front end and gently pushing it back down. This converts the rotational energy into forward motion, resulting in quicker ET's.
