    Default Dirt Modified rear suspension

    Thinking about getting one of these:

    Gets good at 0:45



    Tuning the rear end seems a little intimidating though.

    Wow, there is a lot of movement under there. It's interesting to see how much axial twist there is on the rear axle.

    By design. It uses unequal trailing arms to allow the rear axle to rotate some. This is beneficial for traction. Also this make the car do a stinkbug impression as the rear axle twists and pushes down as a result.

    Some crazy hillbilly tech going on here.

    Hillbilly tech. That sounds about right.

    But still, dirt tracking is a blast.
