Thanks for all the help so far. I know a little more about the differences every time I log onto the forum and read the replies. The pics are great, hammerime and shawnp!
All of the pics seem to have a four-link system with the swingarm suspension. Is this the norm? It seems to me that some of the four-link benifits would not work as well with the shocks. Am I correct in this assumption?
I think I will take your advice and look for a fully suspended swingarm (front and back) with a four-link setup. I have watched the hardtails run for years and have noticed that on bumpy tracks the driver seems to be in a bit of a fight at times.
Thanks for the help. This site is awesome!

I don't think I understand what you are asking about the shocks. Kind of important to have then on a 4-link. You need to talk to hammertime if you want a dual suspended car. His is for sale. My old dual suspended car is for sale as well. The current car is just a rear swingarm, but is on here for sale.
