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 JonesModeratorFebruary 4, 2019 at 8:56 amPost count: 10406

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.Pat KModeratorApril 14, 2020 at 9:03 amPost count: 2743
Those are pricy!!!!!
I think Nate with Wagenswest is still working on these.
We will build it if it comes.John JonesModeratorApril 14, 2020 at 1:00 pmPost count: 10406
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!!!!!!!!!! 😎 😎
