    2018 Dallara IR18 IndyCar Model

    Small update, I’ve been working on the front end and have the shocks in-laid in the car. I ended up using @RoscoPC‘s front wheel hubs from his Williams FW14B model. I will likely join the front and rear ends tomorrow sometime and work on getting wheelbase, right. I’ll put pictures of that if I get to it.

    Here’s a start to the front. I’m might change the white panels but I don’t know yet. The bottom picture is a shock rocker (connects to pushrod and spring) I am considering running in the model

    I am from Danville, just west of Indianapolis. I am currently leaving oversees though. Can wait for the IndyCar season to start especially considering that Mike Tirico is hosting the 500

    As a side note, majority of the beginning of the build will be black because it helps me think better.

    Here is the rear suspesnion. It is designed to work the wheels from the 42056 and the width from outside of the tire to the inside is a about a full stud (half stud on either side) narrower than an exact 1:8 scale. Works good and is easy to add bodywork around.

    Thanks. Good to know that it works well with the rotary catches. Were there any time where it would jam up or was it always consistent and working?

    Thanks For the encouragement. I am also from Indy so that´s part of the reason I wanted to build this car. It´s funny that you mention the front wing because I just finished a render of a simple yet accurate front wing. It is incomplete but is easy to extend out to the length needed

    You’re exactly right and I do have two rotary catches from the Bugatti (I ordered all the transmission pieces from it) so that might help with resistance problems with normal changeovers

    I think I can get buy with a modified version of this stepper. If I add the 90 shaft by @Didumos69 than it should work fine. I’ll post a picture later of the modded design.

    I’m going to be working on the rear suspension and will post progress on Saturday. Does anyone know a compact paddle-shifter design that I can put behind the steering wheel?

    It's a great resource and I have already got all the info from his models (bricksafe, flickr, and his site) I can get without buying the instructions. It's one of those things I am not willing to do. I plan to use the 42000 wheels for the front and the 42056 wheels in the rear.

    These are some of the pictures. There are more on my bricksafe file that have all the specific numbers with the scale. The render at the top is the front suspension design I plan to run but I having trouble finding a good wheel hub (2 studs tall, 1 studs thick) and attaches to the wishbone. The long axle is 10 studs while the axle between the two angled connectors is 6 studs.

    I browsed it and sadly couldn't find anything of use. I have made a bricksafe account and will start uploading pictures today. Here is the link, https://bricksafe.com/pages/JackBloomer5/

    My Bad. It wouldn’t let me upload pictures like I was going to. I’ll will either tomorrow or Thursday create a bricksafe account and start putting pictures there. I’ll include pictures my design, the model it’s based on, and images with all the scale dimensions that I have calculated. Thank You for directing my attention to that.
  15. I am working on the 2018 Indycar aerokit and need to complete the model by early April. https://www.indycar.com/News/2017/07/07-24-New-car-unveil Functions -Working Pushrod suspension on all wheels -V6 fake engine coupled to rear wheel drive; maybe a 6+R DCT -Working steering For the front A-Arm I want the geometry to be as close as possible to the real thing while still being functional and I came up with a design with putting a pin hole with axle connector perpendicular to the hole on a #4 angled connector and then use a 6 stud axle to combine with another #4 axle. This works but I haven't figured out a good way to attach it to a frame and a wheel. If you want any images of what I just described send me n email at jack.bloomer@outlook.com. Any help on this model would be welcome. The color scheme will likely be the same as the Honda but with orange instead of red because that's what I own. This model will be in either 1:8 or 1:7 scale.
