Re: Tell me what you think of the flex.
It looks good enough to me, my "test" is if i can get my front tire up on one of the cement light pole bases,(about 3' tall) at the parking lot we meet at to go wheeling, and keep the rest of my tires on the ground.
With lockers flex is over rated but your suspension still has to work, my buggy's rear suspension for a while brealy worked and I'm pretty sure it lead to atleast 1 flop and lots more close calls. I revamped it and it was decent it would lift a tire and then drop it, i think i was hitting my bump stops and then comming back to earth. I was going to try moving the bump stops but I started a new rig instead.
I'd much rather have a suspension that works decent and isn't super scarry on the road/ high speed stuff then one that can ramp 4 million. I think lots of people are way too stuck up on numbers such as ramping 1000, 12" of lift, 55" long 4 link bars, 20" of wheel travel, 39" of clearance under the rockers. There's very few #'s that really matter in my book, pretty much wheel base, dif clearance, belly clearance, and overall height. We kinda have a running joke in our club who has the tallest rockers, it doesn't matter 99% of the time and 1 member doesn't seem to get it.
