Long arm, short arm, what's different
It has been confused me for quite a while. Hope anyone has a good answer on that.
Most 1/10GP, the rear lower arm is longer than front lower arm, ex: RRR, FW05, 710, MTX3. The only exception seems be NTC3 (and also, LD3, CD3).
On the other hand, on 1/10EP, most of them have same length on rear lower arm and front lower arm, ex: NTC3, 415, EVO4, Pro4. The only exception seems be Xray T1 (maybe few others?).
So, why the basic geomatric design between 1/10GP and 1/10EP has such huge different? Is that becase the 1/10GP's CG is closer to rear rather than in the middle of wheelbase like most 1/10EP did? So the rear lower arm is longer to deal with heavier rear? Or because other reason?
