    Buggy learning curve

    During our last trip we found a little design flaw. The way the rear shocks mounted on the a-arms didn't support the wheel as good as it could. We got to thinking that by moving the mount out past the a-arm and onto the bearing support bracket the wheel would tend to stay straighter and put less stress on the pivots. On the left you can see the subtle change in the new mount as compared to the old one on the right. We will report as to how this changes the performance, but so far the new design seems to keep the wheel straighter and also travel much more naturally with less stress on the components.
