If the front springs where so short that when they are fully compressed, the ratio of spring compression left would be 5%-10%, would this create understeer or caster roll? It might be better, I'm not sure. With the regular spring and having it have 50% left in ratio, that ratio would spin the front wheels? I'm sure that wider tires would effect the vehicle width on regular suspension geometry.

What if after this you had very thin springs, instead of large diameter ones like comparing to the front wheel widths?

His last few posts left me wondering the same thing.

If the front springs were compressed that much...wouldn't the chassis be touching the ground?

I think he's referring to dead coils and progressive springs. dNano gets around this with a cone spring.

The Kawada DDS uses cone springs to reduce the stack as well... I used them on my old PN mount F1 setup with Kawada discs and an Atomic DDS plate...
