Which stock set for MOC supercar?

Recommended Posts

In that case, I would just make a working suspension system, then buy the grey, softer shocks if needed. You never know, once the car has the wight of a body it might be just right.

I just tried with one stud higher, and spring mounted on the A-arm. Not only is the shock fully extended now, the springiness is about the same as the setup of 8070. Since I want a car in the similar size...

And its still compact enough since its 5 studs high. I don't think I can make it less than 5 studs in height. :/

and thanks for suggestion

the new hubs (Rear ones) are the only ones that allow un-equal length A-arms at the hub, as far as I see?

I fixed it, and I made it adjustable height! it will be able to go even lower, but I need to get some 5-stud stopped beams.

I thought I'd sacrifice too much rigidity, but due to the shallow angle of the springs, the forces are more horizontal than vertical and it works out surprisingly well even under stress.

it works with one mechanical actuator.

so features of the rear suspension so far:

unequal lengths A-arms, adjustable ride height, driven axles, total height 7studs (6M). I'm still deciding whether or not to go with adjustable height, but I'm planning to make it a "push-in and lock" design with the rest of the chassis, so it should be easy enough to fix if not working well.
