I serious doubt that during your 20 years of tech inspections, you failed every panhard bar suspension based on your belief that it's shoddy engineering.
No, some of them were works of art. Those fellows went on to race that day. Some others got put on the trailer and sent home, not necessarily from a CRAP
Panhard Bar installation, but a rag is a rag. You are making it sound like I think all Panhard installations are CRAP
and I don't remember saying anything like that. But I do have an experienced eye and I can tell CRAP
when I see it, no matter what the part or assembly is. If we, as a group, embrace a part or system of parts blindly, whether or not the maker used good engineering principles, then we deserve what we get and are guilty as hell of misleading others on this board.
It's no different from any other article that goes into the making of a motor vehicle. There are established guidelines and rules and regulations for fabricating most anything in the automotive arena. The part or system of parts are either right or they are wrong according to established ways of doing things.
I don't know how I can make my argument any clearer.
