A closer look at the rear suspension, including the swaybar from PAC Racing Springs and the CNC machined links, arms and bearing blocks we designed in-house.

With the shocks and CO's mounted to the uppers, the entire rear suspension looking up from the bottom looks so clean and simple!

I love how mounting the sway bar links close the the frame pivot point, allows you to run a short arm. Very compact and tidy. I assume that by increasing the amount of leverage the axle has on the sway bar end link, let's you shorten the sway bar arms. Is there a formula for this? Trial and error? Looks great. If I win the lotto ill be ordering one.

Danny, our engineer, designed it in SolidWorks and from what I understand he did all the calculations on it in the computer to come up with the right arm length, swaybar thickness, etc. Of course in the real world it might end up needing the next size thicker or thinner swaybar, but we think it will be pretty close out of the box. We'll find out soon!

We took Crispy out for testing this weekend. We're working on editing a video, but it may be late in the day before we get it posted up. There's a TON of hand-held and GoPro footage to wade through. In the meantime here's another still shot for you...



We'll post more stills a little later today, and hopefully some video too.
