As a vehicle brakes, the front has a tendency to dive. This can cause the car to become unpredictable and therefore it is important to minimise this effect. Anti-Dive geometry will limit the front end dive giving the driver greater confidence.
Haynes Roadster Rear Suspension is quite basic. Why not spice up the mix with Anti Squat, camber, caster and toe in and out adjustment, just like a Formula 1 race car.
Haynes Roadster Rear Suspension based on the Ford Sierra is a common choose. Anti Squat geometry has been included to give better acceleration.
Kit Car Adjustable Suspension has always been a compromise, but this design employs polyurethane joints, clevis and rose-joints to achieve complete camber and caster compensation.
Cantilever push Rod suspension allows for a rising spring rate during bounce and roll. Unsprung weight can be significantly reduced and cornering performance increased.
Kit Car Rear Suspension Mounts can be tricky, do you build a special gig or do you carefully measure and weld the brackets on without. Anti-squat and triangulation complicates this decision.
With outboard rear discs, this Haynes Roadster will incorporate anti-squat geometry into the rear suspension.
Push rod anti roll bar suspension systems benefit from rise spring rates, yet only a few cars have ever hit the road with Le Mans or F1 style anti-roll systems.
Push rod rear suspension is definitely the way to go on a Haynes Roadster.
Fitting Inboard Bell Crank Suspension to a Haynes Roadster or Locost is a lot easier than you'd think. Cheap too! How to choose the right cantilevers and coilovers.
