Default Short vs. Long suspension arms.

While Barracuda and X Ray swear by it short arms other cars still use longer arms and Tamiya made them even longer...

how are you meant to compare?
x-ray bought out the shorter european arms cause there better for there car but tamiya bought out longer ones for theres cause there better for the tamiya.
you gotta compare roll center,damper angle etc as all these would effect the end result.

The short suspensionarms on the xray are the same lenght as on TC3-Pro4-Evo4. The orignal front suspensionarms on the tamiya are however short. The stockarms on the barracuda and older xrays are way too long to work well in highgripconditions hence shortarmconversions.
