Damn, those are SLOW loading pics! Anyways, looks like a kinda reverse-version of the Scorpion. The rear appears to be a transverse leaf spring and 4 link, with torsion bars that run up front and the front axle is forced to articulate based off the rear???

Kinda like John Hall's buggy, which has tremendous rear flex, this thing has tremendous front flex.

Ohh, but why the pivot attachment thingy on the front end?? I see an air bag right behind it to hold the rig up, and a limit strap would work to keep the axle from falling away...

Well after spending a very long time trying to see all the pics :mad:

I give the guy props for the ingenuity of his design and function.

But at the same time I think he spent way to much time and supplies to build this when he could have gotten the same amount of flex with a different suspension setup that is a lot easier to build.

and those look like tractor hiem joints, which i have seen and the suck and are very weak.

But I hope it works for him

Remember to each his own.
