We are designing and fabricating a circle track race car to be run on dirt. It is going to be mid/rear engine and rear wheel drive, therefore requiring independent rear suspension. We've normally dealt with a live axle rear suspension with a 4 link design, so we don't know exactly how an independent rear suspension works. The basics aren't hard to understand, and we believe that it has several advantages over a live axle, since each wheel acts on its own, and not affecting the opposite wheel as it travels over bumps and such. What we need to know, is what creates traction on a multi link suspension as far as forward/side bite in the turns while on the throttle? Are there better designs than others? We are open to any and all ideas.
Thank you very much!
