If your being serious about the question, the torque arm slider if your doing it right far as I’m concerned. During powder coating and build of car there is a chance something could cause the rods or slider to bind. If this part isn’t right on your car and moving totally freely your wasting your time even taking car to the track!

We always started with slider as stated above and worked from the inside out, cockpit, master cylinders, brake lines, pedals steering box gauge cluster and worked outward.

In Miller's case, I would say coffee stains!

Touche. And in your case it would be raspberry filling from a donut. :whistle:
