If you made a touring car, you'd be pretty damn sharp on the geometry of it!!!

there is weight transfer to be consider under acceleration. controlling how the rear end loads and unloads is key to a proper setup. Thus the longer travel and extra setup pts

Once you understand it everything will be clear.
I think understanding the physics and using clear language is more important than mastering the lingo. Whatever you call it, any spring in the world is going to be harder to compress as you compress it further. It is a law of physics no matter what you call it.

And it is the same law of physics that says springs compress following a linear relation to force.

Don't worry, I understand these things very well and I agree that the upper mounting point needs to be along the shock shaft otherwise the compressing force imparted by the suspension arm is only partially going to contribute to compressing the shock. And I do agree the more laid down the shock the less of that force is going to compress the shock as the arm sweeps up. The way it was explained initially by sosidge didn't make sense and was wrong, that was my comment.

The RClab has identical front/rear shock towers. Is it a great car?
