    The R11 is intended for short course running, or for anyone who wants a more responsive car. However, I still won't be raking the front end of the R13 which is aimed more at open desert/dunes. As I outlined in the other thread, I believe the cons vastly outweigh the pros when it comes to raking.

    I think unless you're going to rake the front suspension by about 30 degrees (I don't know for sure because I haven't done the math), there's little justification for rake on the basis of approach angle/jumping, and as for the foibles of induced castor/anti-dive etc....BAH!

    No argument there. *

    Goes back to that trig thing - hitting a suspension at more of an angle than forcing the suspension to work in a more perpendicular fashion and it lets things work a bit easier.

    Guess I'm stuck with desert mentality. *That good dry heat's slowly baking my brain.. *






    I'm going stir crazy - I wanna work on things, ride, drive, play... *Damn collarbone... Thank goodness it's about healed up.

    How I wish I was going to make LS!!! *AAAaaarrrrggggghhhhhh!!!! * [smilie=banghead.gif][/quote:1t8n4eud]

    Hope that collerbone is healed in 3 weeks, so i can smoke your ass on them 50's....Thats if you are gonna share...

    The overall length of the R11 is 141", but if you were desparate to get it inside an existing trailer, you could trim a bit of the tube work off each end.
