Thanks! From what I have seen the class one buggies have a trailing arm rear and a arm front so that is where I am going with mine

How much travel to you get out of the rear swingarms before the dogbones pop out? It might be worth redesigning the pivot angle so that if you draw a line through your swingarm hinge it'll intersect with the drive cup. That'll mean that the dogbones should stay in whatever angle the rear suspension is at. They look pretty out of angle at the moment and I'd imagine they'd pop out.

Looks like an awesome start so far though.

Thanks for the info. I am getting about 2.5" -3" of travel before the dogbone comes out of the cup. I think I am going to try this design first and if/when I am not happy w the travel I will redesign then.
