very cool... my only reaction on the bad side of things was that the rear doesn't seem to flex as much as it should... I just thought it strange that the tire is so far off the ground.. and after looking more I notice that the right rear tire is rubbing very hard on the tubing and that must be causing that wheel to come off the ground.. are you gonnna fix that? or for some reason is that the way you want it???? kewl truck though! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/eyemouth.gif" border="0">

That thing is cool, I really dig it, but the rear is not flexing like it should because of the shocks. theya re limiting your flex in a massive way. If that is what you were aimigm for, then KICK ASS, otherwise, an easy fix

The rear actually looks like it works pretty good except for the rear steer. The front could go a little farther. Very coo tho.

Hay KSJO Rocks and the buggy ain't to bad either Those rear shocks could be longer with the tops angled into the center of the buggy. The tube work looks great.

Ok, I'll bite. Why isn't the front flexing at all? What is it with 1/4 elip rigs and zero front flex?

EDIT:

Oh, ya, it looks fawkin' sweet tho. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Rear steer... I just finished a four link myself. Rear steer is a fact of life. It is just about minimizing it. It seems to me that if your lower links were mounted on on top of the housing it could be limited a bit more, rearsteer that is. The roll axis would then be a bit more parallel with the chassis.

Nice tube work!! What frame did you use to start with? The front could use some different "softer" springs. <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0"> With that rear link design you will have more "rear steer" than if the "upper" links were on the top of the diff. housing. Looks like you got the "hard" stuff outta the way now you just gotta "fine tune" it.....Good Job... <IMG SRC="smilies/beer.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/beer.gif" border="0">

People saying it doesn't flex?

Look what the Fawk he's parked on.

Suspension may need a little refinement, but lets see your rig drive that far up on the tractor <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Nice Work

That is sweet, you got skills! But the above comment someone made on the shocks limiting travel, Doesn't look like the shocks are a problem, look closely at the r/r tire and where its hitting on the tubes. <IMG SRC="smilies/skull.gif" border="0">

Look at the l/r tire, the shocks are limiting the downward travel...
