Can tou explain how the right rear gets thrust angle with the swingarm does it work the same as a z-link as the body rolls with the spring on top of the rear

it takes a drawing almost to explain thrust angle on a swing arm, but i will try. just draw your bars like they go one behind the car to infinty. they will meet somewhere behind the axle, then draw a line from the point the bars would come togethere at threw the center of the axle. this will give oyu your thrust angle.
if you play with it you will see that hte more neg angle in a swing arm rear bar the more thrust angle. the front bar will change the thrust angle but not as drastically as the rearward bar does.
so as the body rolls the back bar gets more neg angle so the thrust angle increases.
hope this explains it better. like i said without a drawing its hard to explain maybe i could do something in paint.
yes a swing arm and z link are usually the same thing. some people refer to a swing arm as a 2 link style with springs on the front links, IT WILL NOT GAIN THURST ANGLE LIKE A Z LINK STYLE SWING ARM. its the same as a 2 link only springs mounted different.
but the swing arm i talk about is the same thing as a z link, except it has the springs on the front lower links, not on the birdcage, or on the axle like a z link. but same rules apply.
