Hi Eric, if I am not mistaken the RFC Gurkha has solid axles (looks like the suspension is quite stiff though).

You are correct. The front axle of the RFC Gurkha is converted to solid axles. This picture is quite misleading. Since the use coil overs, the articulation was pretty darn good, when I saw the vehicle at the RFC.

Ahhh... I'd been studying those pics trying to ascertain whether they were solid ("live") axles or IFS and wrongly concluded the latter. Thanks for the correction. As noted, it might've been the stiffness of the setup that seemed to reduce articulation?
