2Wdrive- I have the 3-link rear end build up on both a Pantoura Chassis and Gen X 10 chassis. On the Gen X 10 I had the links angled out for a time. They worked fine. Then I took the approach you wrote, and made some carbon fiber nerf wings to reposition that hole exactly where I wanted. On the Pantoura chassis a hole would need to be drilled farther forward near the edge of the chassis to use those links if you start at the front of the lower pod plate. You would end up with links slightly aimed inward. Again I don't think this would be a problem. The early CRC Battle Axe actually came this way. You could reposition that hole just off the chassis by making the graphite plate you talked about.
I am thinking of making Nerf Wings for my Pantoura Chassis. I really like the way they came out on the Gen X 10.
On my Pantoura chassis the extra length of the links was accomodated by making a custom lower pod plate. The links extend until just before the rear axle. Those long links in a 3-link arrangement lead to a really smooth working rear pod.

Wouldn't that nerfwing hit the ground in a tight turn? i have an rc10l2 and modified it to an rc10l2.5 with prc's top and bottem plate. But at first i had those plastic nerf wings on and they scraped the ground badly when i was in a corner. The only thing i can imagine is to make those nerf wings sit higher with some standoffs for instance. In that way they don't scrape the ground.

how did you manage to squeze a shock in that front suspention? Do you have some more pictures of that one? I read through your other experiments but didn't see that one yet.

The nerf wing is higher than the chassis by the thickness of the chassis. It can be shimmed up or shimmed to a tilt to provide roll clearance. I think it will work as is.

Here are some pics of the front end. These are displayed and discussed on my CRC thread. That shock barely fits, but has adequate travel and a superior location.

ah looks good. For myself i will probably use the standard crc front end and for the back the crc springs with a seperate damper like you have. seems to me the most simpel way to get damping in the rear pod.

About the parnhard bar, some one mentioned the watts link and i think you already were trying to make something like that. How did that turn out?

I could not find enough space for a Watts link. As of now I have put Panhard bars low and in front of the motor on all my 3-links. Here is a pic of the latest using the stock tweak springs and CRC Gen X 10 pod.

Dave-The CRC Pantoura was a narrow pan. About 190 mm wide. Exact dimensions and photos are at the very beginning of this thread. It is no longer produced. The succesor is the CRC Gen X 10 (200 mm wide). This is the model that would be suitable for World GT.

but the chasis that prc's sells is a wide version right? at least that was my understanding.

never mind, after reading the first page... PRC's is a wide (230mm) version.

I am planning to use that same setup as you mentioned but then with the wide PRC's version.

Yes indeed. It is a very nicely made wide version. Pantoura parts are still available at CRC although Doug made quite a few of them with slight design changes on his last order. See all the pics from ThomasP but find my pic of the "wide pantoura" for the best view.
