Post New to designing. Why the explosion symbol all of a sudden?

I'm working on an adaptation of a Honda S2000 spindle to an 818R. R meaning a race only version of a FFR 818 kit car.
Seemingly, out of the blue I am getting the explosion icons on the UCA.
I don't get it. Also, a person commented that my roll center was not low enough. At about an inch above ground, what's wrong with its height?
Any other critiques?

In my experience the relationship between the roll centre and the CoG is of more importance. Have a read of this article I wrote on the subject a few years back... //www.racingaspirations.com/suspension-jacking-forces

Basically, the closer the roll centre is to the CoG, the less your car will roll which means you will be less reliant on anti roll bars for control when cornering. Finding and making this change to my car helped me win my class championship that year.

The explosions are supposed to display when the suspension has reached the extents of it's travel but I have also noticed that it can happen during suspension travel in which case it is a bug in the calculator... I'll take a look.

I just subscribed to this today. The first rendition of my suspension gave the explosion symbols around all of the control arms as I moved it around. The second one won't even move, but gives the explosion symbol on the left UCA. Doesn't appear to be crashing into anything.

Can you post the link to your models? Will take a look.

Oddly enough, I started over on the model, all the same numbers and it worked. Thanks for the reply, though.
