D & P Car Project Part 4
A bit of technical stuff: Car lowered to correct ride height requiring
major suspension mods, handbrake fitted along with new rear calipers. (See
Part 5 for video with front body fitted.)
Locost Adjustable Front Suspension - Part 3 of 3 - Coilover Shocks
A simple approach to an adjustable front suspension for a locost sevenesque
roadster . You can build a double wishbone suspension using off-the-shelf
parts and nearly any donor with just a tape measure and this simple DIY
process. The key to this solution is adjustability in those components
that matter the most (and that you can realistically control).

Designing Sports Car in Inventor 11
Another movie of the car that I designed and built a few years ago. Virtual
car still isn't finished. I will be very busy in the next few weeks so
probably I won't find time in June. But I'll be back in July or Sep. Enjoy
BTW There are 402 parts already without bolts washers and nuts.
Spin off or win; it's a crazy test of force! We explain restless forces and
permanent control during the race and the perfect interplay of tires and
suspension. Experts, racing drivers and a brilliant 3D animations offer

Rear axle suspension
Depending on rear axle load-bearing capacity, either one-leaf or two-leaf
parabolic springs are standard. The axles with enhanced load-bearing
capacity are used to reinforce the spring progression with an auxiliary
The single-stage hypoid differential operates with minimum losses, which
also supports the fuel-saving concept of the vehicle. When compared to the
previous series, the axles of the light tonnages in particular, have had
the weight of their differentials and axle housings substantially
optimised. The HUB-Unit wheel bearing unit is lubricated for its entire
service life and its design makes it much easier to replace brake discs.

Mini buggy walkaround and startup, mini sandrail
My first mini buggy build. Built from scratch. Runs a CBR600 f4 engine, fox
2.0 air shocks all around. Idle is a little high right now but an easy fix.
I'll add some more videos of it running soon.
