    Well *that* makes sense! :) I know those have been floating around for a while, but are still active in the red car build thread.

    The force measurements are accurate. Just the calculations in the right column have been changed to be more accurate.

    Ill get specifics monday.

    From what i remember the R has less bar rate in the rear. Same in front

    Both gt350 and the R have exact same 65 durometer rubber front bush bonded to bar w metal internal rate plates and a shaped bottom sled plate base.
    Crap.. i might be wrong it could be the slippy bush in front.. ill dig it up.

    Newest design already testing is over 1.5 lbs lighter, softer rubber, yet higher rates! U will like it.

    Dont forget two different folks tuned those..350 VS R. Different philosophy. One liked huge bars one liked smaller.

    Thanks. Was Billy Johnson involved in the tuning? Or the VDE’s that tuned the original suspension? I met a couple of those guys a few years ago.

    DR3V-5482-DC = 34.6x5.5
