    Default
    A lot of long travel rides can have the A arms mounts to the chasses NOT parrallell with the wheels
    What are the pros and cons of this other than being able to achieve longer arms?

    Some arms are built for strength or function, clearance issues, size issues or heck just for looks etc.
    Some are for light weight so like my arms instead of being an A arm they are more of an L it give me a tons of support to the rear holding my front more solid without having to build bigger size a arms. It also allows me to have a shorter smaller car easier.
    But my spindle still needs to meet up in the same spot and at the same degrees as the off set a arms, normal a arms or J arms.

    Nah.. I was just in the mood.. I can see I missed a few things in my write up.. plus i got off topic a bit. He wasn't really asking for all that but I thought as far as the site goes it would help people as this has been brought up a lot lately in many different topics so I started you guys can add to it. I can't think of or remember everything. So please continue on and add to it.



    I also edited and added that R/c tech link as others have posted it but it is really a great link.. and many others should read it

    I think he was asking about the arms not being mounted parallel to the chassis, like the rail below.........

    Are you talking about like Yoshi is showing in his pic or a different thing? Try to be clear if not Yoshis pic.
    Now that NOBAMA has PROVEN he is the absolute WORST president in the history of history Jimmy Carter can thank him for stealing the dunce crown.

    Lets hope the next guy repeals NObama care along with the rest of the stupid crap this blight on our windshield has done.

    or do you mean like this where the top and bottom a arms are not aligned from the side or do you mean front to back.. like my mini buggies are not in line down the frame?




    ya I know but it was a blank page and I had a free chance to post it as everyone has been asking and talking about it.. so I had some time to kill and posted.. I will probably copy and edit it..
    Thanks though

    The only reason I think he's referring to the way I said it is he said the a-arm chassis mounts not being parallel to the wheels, so if the wheel is pointing straight, for the mount to not be parallel means it would be like the pic I posted.

    What your describing (and the way I actually build mine as well), have the inner a-arm chassis mounts parallel to the wheels......
