View Full Version : X2 Barracuda steering hubs

Just did a mock up of the front suspension and noticed I might run into issues with my steering rod connector brackets.
These are fouling with the lower swing arm at lock, and will not have any clearance when inserting a bolt to mount the rod end.

Are there any obvious reasons for this?

It looks like the bottom rod end is in too far. It needs room for a jam nut.

Do the top & bottom bottom swing arms run parallel with each other?
Assuming the X2 and the standard Barracuda run the same swing arm setup.
