    are you putting 4wd on this buggy? if so, what sort of front diff are you going with? I'm working on my design and absolutely need 4wd. I'm desert and mountain trails and rocks all over here so I need a jack of all trades buggy. Hey, I think I just found my buggy name. Jack!

Makes shock tuning a little easier and spring rates a little more forgiving.

    No worries! Thanks for the explanation. I think right now I have about a 2:1 ratio with the way my suspension is set up. The Shock travels 7.5Ē and my wheel travel is approximately 14Ē. I could lower that ratio closer to 1.5:1 but that would only allow about 11Ē of wheel travel and some awkward looking shock mounts with my shocks mounted farther out on the a arms lol! I guess it comes down to a balance between different suspension behaviours when youíre setting it up. Canít have the best of both worlds eh!

    This buggy will be only 2 wheel drive so I canít really recommend any diffs. I know K fab has a wicked 4 wheel drive mini raptor in progress and you could check out his build for some tips on a 4wd system. Itís pretty slick. Good buggy name!!

    I asked because you did a lot of front end work on your suspension, particularly the fronts suspension. I don't know but that's what I was incurring about. I didn't know if you ended up changing anything or not. You indicated that it would change from bump to ride height to droop. Is that still the case?

    Oh sorry about that, I thought you were asking about the rear.

    Yes in the front I have camber change through the travel. I havenít got my steering set up yet so Iím not sure about toe or bump steer yet but hoping to keep it low. With slight toe in.

    Camber at droop is about -3, about -1 at ride height and -6 or -7 at full bump. Those numbers are just what I remember but I could get exact numbers off my CADmodel later if youíre interested. Real numbers on the actual machine may vary a bit also.

    If I were to ask you about rake, would you happen to remember what you have there?

    I believe it is set at about 7 degrees or so. I will attach a photo for reference. I will have to find all my specs for my front end for you.

    Rear shock mounts are in place. I have about 4Ē of frame clearance at full bump but I plan to run larger tires in the future which will increase this clearance.

    Moving onto setting up steering next!
