    but It’s far less durable and than double wishbone. In reality, this would snap your damper body the inns tang you hit a pothole or take a corner @Typhlosion130

    @LiamW and linking it like this makes the camber much less severe

    Completely different camber throughout the travel, but yes construction is similar. Wheel camber plays a very important role in performance @Typhlosion130

    @LiamW actually its basically the same thing. except I have the hinge on the wheel, not the bottom of the suspension block. this keeps it relatively vertical in game not that I think that maters any more.

    Oh wait, this has an extra hinge on the wheel. I guess this is single link but like this it is extremely dangerous in RL (wheels tuck under when cornering). here's what I mean @Typhlosion130

    This is it lol. You are using single link suspension @Typhlosion130

    @LiamW sounds like fun. and could you post an example of the single link suspension/mention me on a build that uses it?

    @Typhlosion130 Yeah... Unfortunately SP doesn't like realistic vehicles. I've never managed to beat single link suspension for durability and anti-roll. What I have done better is traction and flex. I'll post a rock bouncer/racer/crawler challenge quite soon if you want to enter it

    @LiamW I'll try those on new builds. this is the last one of this I'm putting up. put simply its a cool idea but these things just don't perform on player and AI front like otehr things could.

    Try making solid axle or double wishbone suspension
