Hey wiisass,

Do you have any experience with this? I can't find any good readings other than the SAE book referenced every other word in this section of RCVD.

I mentioned this to the suspension guy today and he said when he ran some calcs he couldn't get it down to the soft suspension rates that we run. I'm still going to look into it, no one has experience with this?

The only torsion bar stuff I ever messed was for the anti-roll bars on the FSAE car. Why can't you get it soft enough? Would it just not be strong enough to last?

Yeah, he said we'd have to use plastic bars with the limited length we would have.
