Why not just buy a C5 and have a proper road racing car instead of trying to coble an economy car designed in 1977 into a competent racing car?
So can someone tell me why shortening the C4 corvette front crossmember 4 inches so it fits under the fox body is not a good idea.
I know the ackermann angles will be off, but what else?
I'm asking for input.
Everyone complains about how expensive SLA's are, I'm looking for an alternative.
Thanks for giving your opinion even though no one asked for it. I think I can speak for at least a couple people on this thread, when I say I(we) really don't care if it's 'cool' or proper by your standards.
So, unless you have something positive to add to this thread, please keep your opinions to yourself.
I know its hard for you to understand, but I'm looking for someone with a little bit of engineering background to comment on the disadvantages of fitting a cockamammy Corvette SLA to my track car.DIfferent is cool and all, but you get to a point of diminshing returns. I don't see some cockamammy DIY Corvette hybrid front susmension as being a viable option for cool points, or proper handling.
I haven't been able to find much more than pictures of DIY SLAs. Have any good links? I would greatly appreciate it.
