Chassis and Suspension / Re: 5 link rear sandcar suspension
« Last post by BrianN on Yesterday at 06:05:59 PM »
Yes, the pics are here. I haven't had time to watch vids or look at parts yet, but will shortly. Here are a few pics of the original car I bought, (purple) and things I have built. I barrel rolled and flipped it at high speed, when it was purple, because a spindle came apart, then the steering gear broke after that. That was when I unloaded it at my house, and cut the car apart before even going in the house. That way, I had to fix it! I have a WIDE cage now.

I like it as well. Mose built many cars that I like but I guess he just went off the deep end at some point. Anyway....... yes I think that chassis was ahead of it's time and you could/would be able to build a very nice car based off the design. If I were to build another car with a arms , I would design it with bushing pivots at the frame and heims at the outer ends.

Damn ds! You gave him a lot to digest there. :m Brian,I/we KNOW you will probably have a lot of questions about what ds just posted. PLEASE don't be shy. Ask all the questions you need to understand it. We've ALL been there and we are very happy to help you in this endeavor. Most of us have learned a lot here and some knew absolutely nothing about suspension design yet most of us are pretty well versed now. I just happened to have ignored the multi link topics since I favor a arm rear suspensions.

 ;D ;D he asked  rofl brianN ask all the questions you need as fabr stated. were here to help! no such thing as a stupid question as long as it isn't why aren't utv's better than rails LMAO
Hey now! I've passed into the dark side ya know......................... well ,at least I still have the real buggies also.

I can't believe you actually understood what I was asking!! Believe it or not, I actually understand most of your info, after reading it once. Thanks. I will research the micro stubs more. I will not be aiming for 24" of travel, because I need to save money by using my Fox reservoir shocks. (Forget stroke length at the moment). I also need to know how to buy/build axles to mate to the Subaru mt5 transaxle, if the stock axles won't handle it. It was just a hope to keep things simple. I will get better pics of my project tomorrow. It is refreshing to learn from people with an open mind. All my stuff is hand made, so usually "goofy" . compared to "factory built"! Thanks to anyone with advise, and I hope to share info after I learn more myself. I don't see any links to pics that people are sending. Except for the sand parts and stubs.
YES!!!! You are going to fit right in here!!!
