i was just wondering if the person who built this suspension had fixed roll or simply used a connector that flexes.

The very noticeable difference in material from the roll connector suggests it's not supposed to behave the same as the rest of the assembly, so I'd guess it does flex.

There an entire build diary for it on Kirkhams website it seems to me. Was an interesting read.

Interesting read indeed. They certainly went nuts on the materials

And that weirdo Dupont plastic sounds fascinating too

Indeed. What an interesting build it would have been to be involved with.

Would be interesting to hear your take on the CNC part of the exercise.
