    Suspension Software

    Default
    I am in the planning stages of a buggy build and am wondering about suspension software. I am very anal about suspension geometry, I have a pretty good understanding of it, but I don't think I can design everything I want on paper and I don't know how to use CAD, or have access to it for that matter. I was hoping someone knew of some suspension software that was relatively affordable (200-300). I know such software exists, but I don't know if there is anything affordable.

    Have you used this for any custom suspensions. It seems to be highly targeted towards circle track and I just wonder how adaptable it would be. Other than that it does seem very good. It is missing any antisquat information, but for the price it may be the best bet.

    You may find WinGeo pretty hard going, its very detailed with lots of interlinking (confusing?) menus depending on your math ability. I certainly did, I'm a professional engineer, not that that means much.

    I found the SusProg3D software a bit easier (& cheaper) to use. Yet its still quite fully featured.

    Has anyone tried the link above? I won't try here at work. Is it legit or is this guy ripe for banning?
