Re: interesting steering setup -> pic

I agree with your thoughts on it. I wonder how it works. I guess bump steer is not a problem???

I don't know if I like it or not! The pic doesn't show much. But, I like how its got three holes so when you lift you Zuk you just move the pin to the next hole, or if it steers like crap, move it to the next hole! I think that is how it works? Different!

I like the idea of it, I also like the shorty bumper looks like a CJ bumper from Currie Enterprise.

I have a spare centerlink that I may fab up something like that later this month. I'll let ya's know how it works.

Re: interesting steering setup -> pic

It looks like he moved everything out of harms way... as far as i know... if the tie-rod and the other bar (forgot the name are parallel, there should be no bump-steer


I was thinking about the consequences if something breaks... but they would be the same in both cases ...

anyhow... i guess it would be a good thing to beef up the ??? bar... looks like it would get more stress than the conventional steering that meets in the knuckle... does this make sense??

from what i have seen, the truck steers fine, w/o bump-steer... but then again, the guy was crawling in the rocks and didnt go 60 on the highway ;o)

... for comparison, see standard spoa steering (w/out correction)





later,
alfred

Re: interesting steering setup -> pic

If I'm not mistaken those are Toy diffs?

I would think that the tube would have to be very solid due to the downforce applied to it.....
