Can anyone explain how a torsilastic suspension works?
Found very little info on the internet.

I'm sure you probably seen the site above. Anyway, what I've gleaned from my searches is that this works in a way similar to the jacking pad suspensions on passenger train cars--a set of rubber assemblies absorb forces in all directions in regards to the chassis. It's remarkably simple, and remarkably durable (if designed right!)
