Hi, is there a limit to what you can set the chassis height to as it seems I am only able to get to 377mm. It won't allow me to enter the details manually also, am I doing something wrong? I am trying to set up an offroad buggy suspension which has around 590mm of travel. Also trying to get the best position for the steering rack to minimize bump steer. Thank you, this is a great tool.

Are you changing ONLY the chassis height? If so the other components will possibly restrict the permissable height of the chassis. If you drag the height of the chassis to near enough whatever you want (>377mm) you can then use the form input fine tune the settings.

You can use the form input from scratch but you will need to make sure all of the values are valid together.

A good starting point for the steering arms is to start at any point along an imaginary line between the upper and lower chassis/control arm joints to a point along an imaginary line between the upper and lower control arm/king pin joints and along a line that would intersect with the instant roll centre (this line is displayed behind the steering arms to give you a hint).
