    Matt delivered the lazer scanned and re-engineered 3d printed proof of concept this weekend. The gear mesh is dialed. I think it’ll work. Its a 2 1/4″ lift using an idler gear the same diameter as the axle drive gear. This also makes the input and output rotate in the same direction which should eliminate the poor power/handling characteristics of stock two reduction gear boxes.( the axle spins opposite of the input causing the suspension to lift under acceleration)

    I think we add coil-over fox shocks, and 4 link instead of spring plates to make a trophy-truck like suspension for a split window bus.

    Hey Matt, do you have a link to that old video you made?

    Nice! Start stashing RGB gears, they are going to be worth $$$ soon. 🙂

    Was wondering if this would resurface! I’d be willing to put higrade into the clouds instead of the weeds if could be the guiney pig on a set of thsee?

    No doubt. We got a little idea what this project is going to take to come to fruition. Lets just say the first set is going to cost $10,000 to program and machine.

    Start a “Go Fund Me” account, or however it works. Probably raise the money pretty quick.

    Why not try to find another interested business who has the means to invest and make it happen? Someone who might already be cnc-ing stuff? Just throwing ideas out

    no doubt the madman could widdle them out manually in about 2000 hrs but we got no CNC machine…

    If an operator at my work ran a file from an outside source in a mill, they’d be fired faster than you can blink. Crashing a $250k machine doesn’t make friends

    I have a friend here in Tucson that has a proto type shop. Full CNC mill and lathe. Let me know if you need his contact info.
