    [POC] Solid ball joint

    I was wondering how to make the upper elevated wishbone. I wonder no more :)

    [POC] Solid ball joint

    Yes. This has many suspension applications and i will use it in my Defender rebuild, if i may :)

    This is amazing!

    Which Steering Hub?

    Weight is always a good measure. If your suspension can handle 1.5kg per axle, it can certanly handle less and will feel very strong.

    Which Steering Hub?

    They're all bad unfortunately.

    Finally managed to build mine: I'll make a video review next week.

    The 4 speed gearbox is 50% finished. It'll be awesome. I had no time yet to assemble the lego version, from which i'll then take all measurements. Thing is, that building the drivetrain layout accurately would actually make things a lot simpler and more compact (as i intend to prove). The designer of the lego version just built himself into a corner following the old lego model formula.

    The problem is, that the gearbox has no business being where it is and needs to be behind the engine. The reduction gear needs to be behind the gearbox. And the steering rack has no business being behind the front axle, where it is in the way of the gearbox.

    This U joint setup has no business being there in the first place.

    [WIP] Ute supercar

    With the shock absorbers i was thinking about the rear axle.

    Use a different shock absorber setup then. Why are you engineering yourself into a corner? I'd use an elevated double wishbone setup in front.

    I didn't mean the lego torque tube. More something like this:

    A few things: If you are doing a gear reduction in the diff, use the new planetary hubs. The rear axle is way too big and heavy. When doing a live axle like that, i'd consider using a torque tube. When making a unibody, have the drivetrain (gearbox+engine) removable and not part of the structure of the car, like in TLG models. You want to save weight werever possible.
  14. Some of the things i'll do will be mods that anyone can implement, some will require a complete (satisfying) rebuild. The biggest issue i have are the wheel hubs. They just limit the steering angle so much. :(
