A friend is working on his car, I want to show you one of the modif he is doing. Don't know if someone made it here already ?

Looks like a sort of Watts link. Is the center piece welded to the housing? Do you have space for the exhaust pipe?

The position of the bellcrank is where it should be at the center of the suspension travel, not at full droop.

A well designed watts linkage should be as low as possible to reduce the roll center height.

Tony already hit on another drawback of watts linkages, hard to find a place for the exhaust pipes.

That is a question I asked him about the exaust pipes. He doesn't know yet where they will be, but for sure not where they were.

I do not see how that would help and how would it even do anything. Depending on which way it pivots either spreads the frame or pulls together. Not like a panhard bar to just keep it centered. If you are doing things like that the exhaust should not be a concern. It will be out the side in front of the tires never out the back. Looks like someone like I have stated before building a car for 1% of their use and kill 99% or your ride. 

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??:P
