In & out is easier to package, but is it really better? You can get longer arcs and less movement the other way.


You can do it, it's been done. You don't get camber correction and if the wheels are moving forward and backward as they rise and fail those are anti forces like anti dive or anti squat.These would be equivalent of the geometric anti-roll forces in a normal orientation of the arms.

Imagine the car diving under braking or squating under acceleration. In these cases the CG might stay at the same height, for this simple example. If the car were entering the turn the front could be at 2" of bump, both wheels. In order for the RC to be at the same height it would need to rise 2".
This depends heavily on which suspension design philosophies you subscribe to, and how advanced of a computer program you have performing the analysis.
