Whilst messing about designing my rubber rear suspension for my kart,I came across the Tucker 48/ Tucker Torpedo, which used rubber in torsion and rubber in shear for its rear and front suspension respectively. Once I’ve got my kart all squared away for this year and back on its wheels (it’s currently being painted) I’m thinking of having a play with making a modular, bolt on front independent suspension system based on the Tuckers front suspension, using Volvo transmission mounts as the shear rubber. Basically it’s a big rubber block sandwiched between the upper and lower control arms.
