TECHNIC BUILDERS: Collaboration on large scale vehicle design
Building large scale vehicle and have spent countless hours working on suspension; particularly independent w/ drive and issue of wheel camber when shocks are depressed. In many MOC vehicle builds the suspension is not "true" as depression of the shock absorber either causes the body of the vehicle to drop unrealistically or the tire to lose contact with the "road" surface. TLG has fixed this problem with some vehicles i.e. #8070
using specialized components. But those elements are insufficient for large scale models. In #9398
the problem is readily apparent. Specifically I wanted a large wheel/tire to remain perpendicular to road service even as it travels up and down due to "shock absorption". TLG released an element in several sets which I thought might be used to address the issue and I think the design I'm displaying here may be a possible solution. Would welcome all thoughts and if there is a need for better photos please let me know.
