What happens to that pogo stick in a roll when the rig lands on the side of the rear tire?:eek:
Now see, there is a good valid point to consider :kewl:. Yeah, unloaded with a side shot definitely could be cause for pogo bendage. I don't care for the traditional panhard, but that is a point in it's favor.

Yes but if it has a pivot on the bottom end which I suspect it does, it would likely deflect. It'd have to take the hit dead square 90 degrees.

The one pictured has a heim on the bottom end. Maybe it should be made out of Howyaguglins beloved ubbatoiletanium memory aluminum sticks. Then it should retain straightness unlike Howyastoolsamplin.

It won't matter Larry. Before it could ever reach a point to take a seriously hard roll from off the ground, it will already be on it's side due to the one-link. Before I'mhavingheatstrokescauseitshotoutside says anything more, I will say I have rode in AND drove a one-link. How many of you can say that? And to add to that, I don't care to build one, own one, drive one, or ride in one ever again. Every time you get more than 1-foot off camber it's like a sloppy noodle and you have no idea when you're actually going over. Oh yeah, and I've been in a one-link rigs for a total of 2 rolls too.

Update:

Here it is in action at Zukicrawl 2010, Katemcy Rocks in Mason, TX on what I believe was it's maiden voyage out. Looks like it did just fine. Maybe Crisbee or someone who's seen it wheel can tell us more.

haters :flipoff4:

Looks good in all the pics at the bottom of "obstacles". If that's all they're wheeling, a "baby lifted" Sami would have probably done the trick just fine.:D

BTW, I never said it wouldn't be fine on mild shiate, just said that a one link is untunable...which makes it complete shiate on "big boy" obstacles.;)

As with any of our rigs, talk is cheap and your shit don't get props until it has wheeled successfully for a substantial length of time! I am interested to see how it holds up and acts in differnt terrain. I still like the concept
