has anyone used the cantilevered rear suspension and in what variations?
left rear , right rear, both, with a z link,3 link etc. what were thwe results?

does it allow the spring to stay in contact with the slider on a 4 link setup (unlike the standard 4 link where the spring separates and floats)

just pondering

I KNOW A GUY THAT TIED IT SEVERAL YEARS AGO ON A D-W 7, SAID IT WAS BAD FAST ON A SMOOTH TRACK, BUT WAS AWFULL ON A ROUGH TRACK.

What would you like to know,I had a modified we it on both sides it was set up like the Rayburn late model. It was very fast and a lot of chassis builders tried to copy.

Yes I would like to know a little more about it my self. I know the basic workings of it.....bell cranks and such. And I guess the main advantage would be less unsprung weight. But does that little bit of weight really make enough of a difference to go through all that trouble? Plus, I've been told its a pain to change springs?? So what are the "Big" advantages to it???
