Hello all; Am I reading your screen shot correctly? it looks like the suspension movement is the black line in the 4th box down the page. And is it configured so that above the line is actually compression of the suspension? What you want to do is achieve a situation where the suspension is not compressing but separating, is that what your trying to do?




The graph has a zero line and that is ride height anything above it is extension and below it is compression...From what I have seen in other logs the extension is about right but needs to compress more and then stay below the zero line and compress more as the car goes down track.............Right =;

[quote="Scott Smith"]Trying to make you think. :-$

48 is too short. I rather see you in the mid 50's or even upper 50's. But your bottom bar looks good.[/quote





Ok.......Should I move the front of the bottom bar down one hole or move the housing end up one hole :-k ...Looks almost the same but I will check it for sure :-s

This may be too small to see.

I'd try the 48" ic. Might even try as short as 45 or so...you might find you like it better. keeping the ic height around 5-8 inches off the ground. Try running the extension settings of the rear shock even lower,...maybe even as low as 0 on the setting.

I forget,...is this a SBC or BBC car? Whats the wheel base of it?
Forgot to ask,...what spring rate did you end up going with on the back and front of this car? What did it weigh? Do you know the percintages?

This setting is....IC is 50.7 height of 6.3 anti Squat 81.6%

Just curious: With the given IC location and percent antisquat, the CG height is only 16.5 inches with a wheelbase of 108 inches. Is it really that low?

Just went back to your first post in the "4link program???" thread and, though the IC location and percent antisquat are very different, it still comes out to 16.5 inches with a 108 wheelbase. So, to answer my own question, it looks like it is that low.
