RC Bros Rear Adjustable 4 Link Mount
Availability: 2-3 Days
Above is our brand new rear 4 link mount specifically designed for the Berg V1 Axles! Weighing in at 5 grams you can't go wrong!
With this mount your links will be mounted in true center of the axle unlike the factory mount. Adjustability is now at the hand of the builder, with 5 different height locations and 2 different horizontal locations you can now fully tune your suspension!
These must have at least 1 screw in the thicker bodies section of the mount, if not ran this way, there is a chance of bending.
These mounts are not a direct fitment to most existing berg setups. Custom links will most likely need to be made to accommodate your rig. As you clock the axle, the mount will rotate backward. Links may require unique bending to accommodate the chassis you are running.
Understanding the changes that occue to ones rig will help when it comes to tuning ones rig. Below are a few helpful tips to consider when building.
The upper link length controls the axle clocking, the longer the link the more the axle clock will increase with suspension travel, assuming your uppers are longer than the lowers. Since we don't have pinions, it keeps the motor up and out of the way. The truck does feel more predictable with long upper links as it provides less movement in the axle and reduces the amount of clocking that can occur when compressed. A shorter link will do quite the opposite.
Shortening the vertical separation (distance between) between the uppers & lowers on the frame mount side will increase Anti Squat (rear Â rises) while increasing the vertical separation will do the opposite. This is assuming all else remains the same.
What is Anti Squat?:
When a crawler accelerates, the weight shifts rearward. The higher the weight is above the ground, the greater the shift off the front and onto the rear will occur. This extra weight will compress the rear suspension, making it SQUAT. But there is also a torque on the rear axle, equal and opposite of the tire torque. The axle will try to rotate upward. The links resist this torque by putting forces into the frame. These forces may try to lift upward. The upward force will cancel some of the squat from the weight shift, euqally ANTI-SQUAT.
