    Kurtis Kraft Style Frame

    The key is 'in-facing' 4 link suspension.

    Front and back.

    Here's original Kurtis.

    Guess it's time to let go of some old ideas about building frame. (I mean some of mine. Not this Kurtis.)

    Out facing 4 link would be more rigid frame.

    That's the kind of thing I need to let go of.

    We're either going racing or we're not? Right!

    The big change in thinking for me here is 'swapping' the way the links work.

    Up until now I've designed front links 'leading'. Facing forward. Rear links 'trailing'. Facing rear. Now it's reversed.

    Here more pictures and explanation.

    Very stoked about this! On right track now.
