Traction Beam

Since the Traction Beams were widened between the radius arms and the beam ends, Tom was able to build the radius arms sans bends, which netted both simplicity and strength. The tires clear the radius arms at full steering lock. A King 3-inch coilover works alongside a King bumpstop to tame the terrain. Look closely at the bumpstop mount and the radius-arm pivot bracket. Tom built his bracketry to bolt to the frame, which avoids cracking. The brake-line routing is extra-clean and tucks out of the way. Very nice.
