Andy,
No offense taken.
The delima you expresed is exactly why I was bummed out when talking to some suspension gurus left over from our racing days as mentioned in my earlier post. That frustration led to building teh twin torsion bar rig and the results were interesting.
Any suspended machine has a roll center and a center of gravity.If the supension moves when weigth is trnaferred in a corner there is a roll center. How to calculated it on a sidecar rig? I dunno. Read my first post carefully. We raised the supenaion figuring what the heck maybe that will raise th eroll center. It obviously did. I still do not knwo how to calcualte it and was hoping someone here woudl have an idea.
Hey we're all in this together right?
