    i think he exaggerated his sample drawing to make his point. i don't dispute the facts but based on his sample, the car would have 12-14 inches of suspension travel and used a short radius arm and drag link. it's the poster child for bump steer. how many buggy spring set ups do you know with that much suspension travel? the shorter the arms, the more drastic the arc also. just to prove his point.
    i know i'll experience some bump steer. i don't think it will be the kind of lane changing, baby killing ordeal that pete makes it out to be. there are plenty of notable builders with cowl steering who are getting along just fine. to this pete says they are in denial. if my cowl steering proves too dangerous to drive, i'll change it.

    I think you'll get along with it or you won't , you really don't know how much or little it will affect you until your on the road so good luck . Mine has a bit of bumpsteer but with the limited suspension movement , I don't really notice it anymore .........

    Well, it's been a long time since I updated. I'm still healing from my shoulder fracture, but I'm getting better. Got my engine put in this morning A HUGE thanks to Resinator at CCR All the measurements I bugged him about were spot on. The engine and trans dropped right into place. I'm so freaking stoked.
