suspenion tricks

it's been a year since i made my front suspension.. it was my own design. and i never saw anything like it, so i was a bit apprehensive about it..
here are my thoughts... OH YEAH.... i like it.. i am going to make the 3rd one of this design this weekend.. this time to a scout...here are some pics of why it works.. the first is how it sits normally with weight on the vehicle...notice the front driveshaft is very close to totally compressed. the second shows the movement of the shackle and how far the driveshaft goes..the shackle actually swings a bit more when the other side is on a rock..

i'm not saying this is for everyone, but it sure works good for me.
