Guys, I WILL BE getting a Hi-Steer setup done soon by raising drag link & tie rod over the springs suing custom fabricated arms.

BUT still want to discuss how come that the AXE has this steering angle?

See pictures below. The angle between the drag link & tie rod looks similar to what I have right now in the Gypsy. What does AXE have here?

Khan sir, one major difference i could see here is the track width. with the wide track the steering drag/correction will be less during articulation.
my only concern is what would be the magnitude of the drag when you run the left front wheel on a pothole at a high speed. But i feel the existing setup does not cause any problems off the road since the speed at which you cruise will be very less and there is allways more time left for you to do the correction.
Anyways lets test it this weekend

Sultan of offroading, this should excite you.

Secondly "off roading" means a lot of fun off the road.

Enjoy articulation. Its an interesting phenomenon. (completely Sameera Reddy)

Shanawaz - great job buddy. Your Gypsy is most talked about Zuk in NIOC as well. It will be intresting to hear your feedback on the performance on and off road.

Cheers

Better Articulation and better break over angle, ramp angle etc..etc. Even if the GC is the same, it makes a big difference in OTRS..

Oh..and ofcourse, its "BANDHA"..

Taller tyres would also help with the GC,..as most SPOA Samurai's run pretty extreme tyres and this itself should gain him around 20-40 mm depending on how extreme the set-up is.

After thought the tyre set up on Sultan's gypsy was adequate for the stock suspension set-up. This is now dwarfed with the SPOA and needs urgent upgrade !

i got it now. thanks for the answer, the articulation sure makes a big in OTS. it gives flexibility to the vehicle to over come the hurdle.

thanx again Headers.
