    Now see to me that looks like a whole lot of body role... The front left is still in the air... Not enough droop in the front and the body roles over on the soft rear suspenion pulling the front into the air.

    looks like lots of rear steer and body roll but when you have that much flex thats what you get just think if the front had that much travel it would tip over. there has to be a happy medium. but I think its pretty badass. very few get to be up on my screen and this will be this weeks screen.

    If the 4 link system was designed correctly, alot of the rear steer could be eliminated.

    Thats why I said "alot" of it could be eliminated and not all.

    The "famous Josh" resurfaces......!!!

    1/4 Elliptic rear suspension.


    1000 Bonus points for doing something unique
    1000 Bonus points for the video clips I've seen of it working quite well

    - 100 Points for the rear axle steer which is severe. Not as obvious in this pic but I've seen some others where the rear axle is at least 6" forward on one side, and 6" backward on the other! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Still it's a great example of somebody actually TRYING something unconventional (and probably learning a lot in the process) instead of using the "regular" methods.

    Plus Josh is like 20 years old or something....so he gets another 1000 points for getting such an early start. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
