A arm geometry

I've been doing some research on suspension geometry and have some questions. Rickdude pointed out in a previous post that the set up was all wrong up front. If new a arms were made and the rear mounting points for the a arms were in line with the fronts, would that solve the bump steering and or the pushing that the Revolts have? The mounting points for upper and lower arms should be in the same plane (or very close to) if I'm reading the info right.
The arms could be made to work properly if made shorter but that would limit wheel travel. Is 17" of wheel travel that important when there is only 13"s of ground clearence? That measurement is what I have on mine with me in it.

I had a chance to drive Crazy old man's Rage buggy and let me tell you that thing turns like a dream. Of course is has limited slip in it but the steering is effortless.

Re: A arm geometry

I've owned a Revolt and a Riot. I can tell you for certain that the Riot steers much better than the Revolt. So it's either geometry or weight on the tires....or possibly both. So maybe look at the Riot's front suspension and see what is different in terms of geometry.....because they both use the same spindles at the wheels. Thus the vertical seperation and alignment are the same between them at the wheels. Just gotta figure out what is different at the chassis end and alignment with the steering rack.

Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.......who's bringing the chips?
