Is there a computer program to help with the task of designing a tube chassis? Link location and length, drive line position and weight distribution? Or are you just putting it together and see how it goes (winging it) thanks for your input

simply drawing out the first one on paper will give you a good idea of weight dist, link angles, general packaging etc. After a few chassis projects you'll just start winging it unless you're building a rocket ship. I generally feel people over analysis their project and it kills their motivation before they even finish the chassis.

That's what I thought everything I've put together so far has turned out good didn't know if the CAD would help step it up a notch or slow me down sounds like I'm still going to wing it
