Pros, Cons? Saw a Lightning(?) chassis with the front shocks mounted inboard on a cantilever system. Just wondering what effects this has on a racecar...

Thanks

Less prone to damage, more clearance on the A frames.

So do they basically work the same as outboard moutned shocks? What about rate changes? How coem not many run them this way?

Thanks

The White Lightning Chassis cantilever system flat out stinks. If you take a shot to the wheels it breaks the arms then you are trying to control a pogo stick. We ran them for one season, and converted them over to the normal style. The Larson version it a little stronger I believe

Thank for the replies....

Does the "Larson" version connect to the upper A-arm like the "white Lightning" version does? It look like it does. If so, what is the difference in the two?

I have been shown another way to do it with a rod coming from the lower A-arm up to a transfer bar and then the shock down to the frame.

I really appreciate the help guys...
