Thanks again guys. Its finally going to start to roughly resemble a replica of a strange looking British sportscar.
Did you calculate chassis stiffness of your frame?
It looks fantastic, very close to what I have in mind, only you built it faster than the speed of geology and I don't
Moti, going to get some furniture dollies to acheive a "roller" status too.
My last run through ANSYS had the frame at 3400 ft-lbs/deg but I've also added some heavier tubing since then in a few areas. It could probably be stiffer since my total roll stiffness is around 570 ft-lbs/deg; I've read you generally want about 10x this for the chassis stiffness.
It only costs $10/corner to achieve roller status when HF is having a sale - it took Ron Champion atleast that and his won't do doughnuts in the garage.
HF sells 2 sizes of dollies; they seem to love pushing the large ones but they also sell the smaller size which is rated for 1000 lbs/dolly. I can't take credit for the idea since I stole it from Keith Tanner's site.
OOOoooh....sixteen-wheel drive! How many differentials does that require?
Just one diff...but the traction control is a wiring nightmare and I have to run 16 rotors, 8 master cylinders, 4 bias knobs, and 8 e-brake cables. I'm a little worried about the unsprung weight.
