I think he's saying that because you didn't do any trigonometry or technical drawings it's crap??

Just because there is no CAD drawings doesn't mean it is not well thought out. I know a guy who built 20 aircrafts this way (and I'm not talking about RC aircrafts). Some of them became really popular designs.

Hey guys, does anyone know dimensions of hardware for Trunnions mount shocks, or at least how wide the shock is between mounting points?

I can’t find any docs online

To be fair, his blog has some good information. It's just his personality that's garbage.

And that's fine ... mostly.

I'm grateful for his experiments and investigations and he's provided us with valuable information and worthwhile ideas. A few crackpot ideas, too, but that's part of the process. I'm glad he exists. It's just a matter of extracting the value and ignoring the "less savory elements".

I’m still going to stand by my opinion that he doesn’t need to be driving traffic to his own website that for the most part is full or arrogant language, although does provide some useful data if you look past how much this guy obviously thinks of himself.

Yep agree. I use the linkage software and draw the main points onto my steel table using measuring tape and rule.. Even some sincostan to get the head angle. Have thought about getting prints done then lay it on the table but i can draw it on the table in about an hour.. all good.

"I do this for fun and for free. You don’t pay me. I owe you absolutely nothing. What should you get for free? What is my responsibility here? How about – fu*k you. Often, I will leave one word comments on a thing; “junk” or “crap”. People get upset. They act like I have a duty to support these evaluations with academic rigor and test sessions. I don’t. I’m busy. I do enough already. You get long winded write ups on topics I enjoy. That is my fun. If a drive by snipe is what I had time for then that is what you get. Learn from it. Instead of asking more from me, how about if you ask more from yourself? Why don’t you try what I do? Grow a goddam pair and fight. I get tired of lame debates with tools that think saying anything bad about a shit product is bad. So tired. I’d like to read a decent critique once in a while, why don’t you give it a try? Do some math. Prove your point."
