Dear Mick thank for those pics. The attachment is clear, but this way at least the lower radius rod will run parallel to the chassis. On every car i´ve seen so far with this kind of rear suspension construction, the radius rods are running towards the outside of car and connecting there to the uprigt. This in combination with the lower and upper control arm forms a big triangle. I think if you run them parallel your toe change will be much bigger than in the versions pointing outwards. The farer outsid you connect to the lower and upper control arm the less your toe change will be.Tom,
The radius rods will attatched to the 50mm x 3mm Virtical box section at the back of the tub, this is where the engine gearbox mounts will attatch to the tub, The engine gearbox, will also be attatched to the back of the side sponsons,( I havnt made these mounts yet ) to spread the loads over a larger surface area. The Roll cage will also attatch to the upper part of the box extrusion, also the inner part of the box will have 1.5mm steel bonded to it, to give added stiffnes, and strength
I have removed the rear part of the triangulated cross member so you can see how it is constructed
Thanks for the info...Originaly, I was going to have the mounts further towards the middle of the car, as you can see in this pic, but I changed it because it was far to strong and heavy....you could drive a tank over it, and it wouldnt brake.......

Because I havnt riveted and bonded the chassis together yet, it will be easy enough to move the radius rod mounts further towards the middle of the car
What ctr. to ctr. distance would you recomend for the radius rod mounts, I have 10" rims with 295-50-15 tyres
Thank for the help
