Anti Squat Independent Rear Suspension for a Locost / Haynes Roadster is not easy. I have used push rod rear suspension to get a rising spring rate and reduced hub weight
Setting up Inboard suspension on a kit car is a time consuming process. one that involves hours of measuring, clamping and tack welding.
Push Rod suspension doesn't have to be complicated, many kit cars or Haynes Roadsters could have it at virtually no extra cost.
The push rod suspension on the rear of this Haynes Roadster is almost complete. The reduction in un-sprung weight should help handling, but more importantly they look GREAT.
Cantilever push Rod suspension allows for a rising spring rate during bounce and roll. Unsprung weight can be significantly reduced and cornering performance increased.
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.
