1. The Panhard bar needs to be as long as possible. Bars mounted to the pinion are a bad joke.
2. The Panhard bar does not need to be a straight bar. It can be twisted up like a pretzel to miss other components on the car and still do its job properly.
3. Panhard bar mounting points need to describe a line that is parallel with the road surface at rest.
4. History would have been much better off if Rene Panhard had been padlocked to a pole and caned until he came up with a better design for preventing lateral movement of the differential housing. James Watt had come up with a much better design by 1808, so Panhard had reference to that to work with.
