Building the front suspension

I found the front suspension and steering to be a very satisfying but technically challenging aspect of building a Locost clubman.  I learnt a lot during this exercise and now understand more about suspension design than I thought possible.  There is a great deal going on at the front of the car to make sure that the wheels stay attached and the car goes in the direction that you point the steering wheel. Nothing can be taken for granted once you start building your own steering and suspension.
