    Not really. To this point, roundabout 20 hours in the shop and 15-20 hours of thinking and planning.

    —–

    Only a Bronze-Bushing to made, the combined articulation and swivel joint is ready to use.

    Some pics:

    a corkscrew?

    No, it’s the beginning of the rear-frame

    together with the swivel-bolt.

    the m2-screws around looking nice , I think.

    All together. In the absence of a proper shaft, I use a 6mm Drill for the pics.

    The Block in the middle will be the anchor-points for the hydraulic-cylinders. After I know the exact position the block will be a bit more elegant.

    To compare the size with a 1.9 roklox. Looks massive but it isn’t.

    For slightly complicated pieces I make often such explosion pics for later remembering.

    Thanks.

    The last Days I’ve try a classic four-link-suspension. But the whole thing is too small and I get Issues with driveshaft-angles or just the ugly optic.

    So I decide to use Leaf-Springs. Gugeling show me that the usual suspects don’t have Springs that fits my dimensions. The great prices I’ve noticed too encourages me to try a selfmade-solution. Et Voila:

    That’s a thing of beauty there. Das ist ja wirklich ganz toll! (I try)

    I’m guessing that with the central pivoting mechanism the suspension will just be to cushion shocks rather than provide massive articulation, as that will be handled by the chassis?

    Apologies, that’s a badly framed sentence for a native English-speaker to understand!

    Nice try 🙂

    thank you.

     

    I think,  I can follow your thoughts.

    The original cournil has added some springs too, after the first rounds to avoid extreme bouncing.

    The pivoting or the articulating has no effects to the suspension when, for example, the front axle is rolling over a root.

    It‘s just a good thing at greater terrain-changes to hold the grip

    A great Step is made. The Drivetrain is done.

    Before that I’ve made the other Leafsprings and the axle-adapters.

    Thanks.

    Last part today was the combinated grommet/hinge for the boot lid/pillar for rollcage.

    Thanks.

     

    I wish to change the battery without any tool. Therefore I built  at the rear a mocked fan-cover. At the top I can now Lock the rollcage.

    Hideous little things to file and I need some “Oooohhmmm”-practise to hold on and not to throw it through the cellar 🙂

    Unspectacular but I need it. A small connector for the two ESC. One spare for future use.

    H06038

    It will take place on the combined Holder for it and the two ESC. A Fly-Esc was delivered with the pump. For Driving I choose the Hobbywing 1080, at present the most hyped Crawler-ESC in Germany.
