    Prime example of another dude thinking a 4 link system is just 4 bars hooked to the axle and frame...

    Although, I guess one of the best ways to learn is to just do it and learn what to change by what it does...

    I can't wait till I finish my 4 link on the back of the truck and get to post it over there /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I would say that no one even bothered to mention anything of merit in that thread in regards to his suspension.

    are his links parrallel to each other?
    infinite intersection puts the anti squat % where?
    it almost looks as though they may be intersecting behind the rear axle underground somewhere.

    roll axis is very low so this will be another flop mobile with those super soft coils, barring the front leaves locating the body.

    study.

    I bet a good 1/4 elip would allow some of the flop to be tuned out, better still would be getting the roll axis up

    That was pretty mild in comparison to some bleeding noob feeding frenzies I have seen over there. /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif
