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.
Getting a fully adjustable rear suspension set-up on a Kit Car is not easy. With the use of Urethane, Clevis and rose joints I think I have found the best compromise.
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.
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 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.
Fitting inboard shock absorbers and bell cranks to a Haynes Roadster has been a long process, mainly because Sierra Diffs now cost a fortune!
