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?Pat KKeymasterApril 24, 2018 at 7:20 amPost count: 1211
Forgot about these. Super badass!!!
We will build it if it comes.BBWBParticipantApril 24, 2018 at 7:42 amPost count: 748
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?FranzKeymasterApril 24, 2018 at 2:35 pmPost count: 3212
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.Pat KKeymasterApril 24, 2018 at 3:06 pmPost count: 1211

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

I am more and more interested in making this happen…. 😎 I will continue on with my yearly goals… but this is moving up my list quick..JbParticipantApril 25, 2018 at 5:47 pmPost count: 575
Damn! 10k? didn’t matt already write the file or however that shit works? Seems we need need to get a fellow VW junkie slash machinist to get excited about these??? at least for the prototype trial and error portion!!68tintopParticipantApril 25, 2018 at 5:53 pmPost count: 693
Like Jarod. Worth fab can fab up all kind of cool shit. If we all pitch in a grand then we could get them for johns bus and he could do the test run to see how they rip?WillyModeratorApril 25, 2018 at 6:19 pmPost count: 1007
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 outJbParticipantApril 25, 2018 at 8:12 pmPost count: 575John JonesKeymasterApril 26, 2018 at 6:36 amPost count: 6124

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 friendsBBWBParticipantApril 26, 2018 at 1:21 pmPost count: 748
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.
