Looking good! When I get to that stage of the build on my P/X, I was going to do a normal 4-link set-up, but after looking thru some old Drag Racing Monthly magazines, I thought I'd go ahead & try a different rear suspension set-up, something you don't see too much.

O-K you asked for it.I'm planning on building a swing-arm rear suspension (developed by Murray Anderson from "down under") for my '71 Dodge Demon P/X.It's one of the questions I asked the tech at the ADRL to make sure it is a legal set-up, it is, so I'll try & put one in.

The complete steering system turned out fantastic, if I ever get around to making a 1/16th scale P/M build, I sure hope I can build it close to this build, it's great!
