wondering about a car i saw,
On the bird cages two bars,both sides going foward.(towards the front,total both sides is four)
then it had two more bars going towards the rear on both sides.mounted inward of the birdcages.
One solid link bar where i thought there should be a torque spring, attached to a higher location on the cage. with a shock running in the same direction.??? i dont see how this can even rotate. any one seen this before?

Sounds like a swing arm with brake floaters. Dont understand the 90-10 shock wiht a solid upper bar.

Was this car fast?

Sounds like a 4bar car with brake floaters, or a zlink with floaters.

6 total lins from the bird cage? and a 90/10 shock thrown in the mix?

NOT AT ALL........IT IS MY NEIGHBORS CAR
THE CAR WONT ROLL OVER,
IT PUSHES TERRIBLE, I CANT SEEM TO UNDERSTAND WHAT THE PREVIOUS OWNER WAS TRYIN TO ACCOMPLISH..
NOW I AM SO CONFUSED AS HOW THE "SWING ARM" IS SUPPOSE TO ACT?
RULES FOR "B MOD" STATE THAT IT MUST BE A TWO LINK OR LEAF SPRING CAR, NO NON STOCK 4 BARS OR TWO LINKS.

I AM CONSIDERING ALL NEW SUSPENSION FOR THE REAR.
WHAT I AM ASKING IS HOW IS THE SWING ARM SUPPOSE TO REACT? WHAT DOES IT ACCOMPLISH?
