PB Racing Dart 1/5th Scale - Lauterbacher Shock Absorbers

The last PB Racing Dart car run by Keith Plested had a significant number of modifications made to it.

The pictures below show the Lauterbacher shock absorbers that were fitted to the front.

Some Notes

Different length rockers were made to make better use of the Lauterbacher shockers.

A drawing of the rockers Keith Plested made to make better use of the Lauterbacher shock absorbers is shown to the left.

A Suggestion

Angled Rockers

I think it may be beneficial to angle to top of the new rockers to get better movement with the pushrods - see image left. Assemble as a pair, obviously!
