Default Antisquat and Instant Center Location

As the result of a long thread in another forum, I've added a page (Page 38 ) to my site which demonstrates that the tire patch force vector ALWAYS passes through the instant center. The spreadsheet user is able to adjust link lengths, rear pivot locations, and spread. The effect of spread on link loads is also part of the output.

Though both sites are, for the present, up and running, I'm encouraging racers to go to my new URL:

http://www.racetec.cc/shope

Same stuff, but it's a bit more readable and there is no traffic limit. (A traffic limit at the Earthlink site was clipping off the last days of every month.)

Have added a page (Page 45) that goes into this IC location/antisquat business a bit more rigorously.

Also, the old site now redirects you to the racetec site.
