so how does the torque rod that connects to the carc work?
It stops the bevel box from spinning when you put on the brake!
I think it works on the parallelogram principle, so it acts like a longer version of a normal swingarm, so there is less torque reaction and the shaft has less movement when it’s going up and down on the suspension!
Actually its not connected to the bevel box, or casing, it’s connected to the bevel drive inside. Its supposed to stop the bike bucking under hard accelleration. There is a parallelogram action which helps stabilise the whole thing.The R in CARC stands for reactive.The casing and swing arm takes care of the braking forces.
