    Suspension Design

    Hi everyone,

    I'm new to the forum and currently in the process of designing my own mini buggy, I purchased the plans for the spidercarts arachnid kart and was going to do this build but after some research of the plans found that the suspension geometry rubbish. So I'm starting a new design from scratch with front and rear double a-arm suspension and trying to keep it as small as possible (needs to be able to fit in a 8'x5' trailer).

    I have been looking into suspension geometry a lot and found this link that I think may help some people understand some of the principles of setting up suspension. I'm no expert by any means but the more I read the more I'm understanding it. If anyone else has any links similar please post!!!

    Norton shmorton. I clicked on it, it's a pretty informative site for suspension basics on road going cars.

    There is nothing wrong with the first link, but I've found another link that's the same thing, see if norton likes this one!

    I clicked on both. I would say the 1st link shows pics and goes over most every thing with from suspension. Really informative and would help the people who need pics to help with what they are reading.

    Both links worked for me. But I'm also on apple iOS and cell phone. Not sure with non apple computers
