Trying to come up with ideas for my Senior Design project next semester and I would be interested in incorporating this into our project. I’ll have free reign of the CNC machines at my university so I could fab one and help you guys develop it.John JonesKeymasterAugust 7, 2018 at 2:49 pmPost count: 6688
Glen I already have Nate on it…. It’s been awhile now… I hope I haven’t wasted money and him time…. 😎WaynerParticipantSeptember 17, 2018 at 9:41 amPost count: 138

Talked with our friend Matt Faulkner last week….He made the 3d scan and printed plastic model.
He has more time this year with a change in job, and said he would like to tackle making the prototypes.John JonesKeymasterFebruary 4, 2019 at 8:56 amPost count: 6688
I hope this doesn’t turn into a waste of money..,, my bus feels plenty top heavy as is….. 😎FranzKeymasterFebruary 4, 2019 at 9:00 amPost count: 3623

For side by sides. Think it would be strong enough?AndymParticipantApril 13, 2020 at 9:17 pmPost count: 935
Franz do you have the file that Matt did? I got a haas vf-3 on the way. I’d love to make these reality for JJ / KCW.

Those are pricy!!!!!
I think Nate with Wagenswest is still working on these.
We will build it if it comes.John JonesKeymasterApril 14, 2020 at 1:00 pmPost count: 6688
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?
Those costing nearly $5K for a pair, is only going to help fuel this idea… 😎 😎 Come on Nate!!!!!!!!!! 😎 😎AndymParticipantApril 14, 2020 at 9:31 pmPost count: 935
