So, I've already built the brackets with 6" of seperation at the axle end. They are 1/4 plate that will be braced well. The anti-wrap bar is schedule 80 on the bottom link and 40 on the top. Plated gussets on it as well. I'm using yj bushings w/ 1/4 dom for the mounts. and a 3/4 by 3/4 heim at the frame.

Is 6" enough seperation? I've been reading now that I've started tacking things together that it might not be. At this point it won't be a ton of work to make it more.

Thanks
CJ

If you're cramped for space, check out Pook's FToy rebuild on the Formula Toyota forum. He used "horizontal separation" on his traction bar to handle the torque.

I think it is. More is better, but at some point it becomes a packaging issue. I've seen them with only 3 or 4 inches and they seem to work OK, but you can imagine that there will be the same amount of force across a smaller area.

I think the heims are about 6" apart on mine, FWIW.

6" will work--but I prefer 8"


And no not my penis size either :D
