Fingers crossed Saturday.  If not I'm aiming for Tuesday or Wednesday next week.  Family and work tend to get in the way a lot. Lol

Carbon parts are all custom cut for me. Designed by me.  Printed parts are all pla tough for now.  Planning to try out some other types of once I have them.

I took a built chassis to work this morning to show my boss.  And decided to see how much the chassis weighs. A massive 63 grams. A 5th dimension sucker punch is around 84. I could get that lower with some titanium bolts too.  I think I could hit sub 50 if wanted.

They could be a possibility.  But they will add weight over this set up. If I could find some 60mm me tubes to try I could test them. I'd need 6 of them.   So it would add a good chunk to the cost of the chassis too

Miss read that the first time.  Thought you ment chassis brace. As for links.   I made some before. Didn't really save any weight and flxed to much.

The film is after it lost a drive shaft pin. So I had to fix it with a bent m5 bolt. It's then   Snapped the rear link riser. Had to go back to the stock link point. So it has a horrific drive shaft angle. I was filming and driving together. And trying to keep a 5 year old under control. I think it did really well. It's still not set up fully yet. I really can't drive and film at the same time.   Not after my stroke unfortunately. So it's not the best. The car climbed over stuff really well. Until it all went wrong lol.  Need to set the car up better and try again

After a lot of rude words.  4 different test items. And a lot of messing about and a nice headache my pro44 link riser is finished.  Not the most tidy item. But it's good enough for now.  Time to print a final one off and get it fitted. Also sorted the weight hangers last night.  Added 40mm to the axle.  One more job sorted off the list. 

 

Have already fixed the issue with the 2 small holes in the weight hangers.  Moved them slightly. Getting some slugs made for it next week.

Got the herja out at breakheart quarry in dursley this morning with a group of people.  about 20 if us with all sorts of cars.  A total of around 100 gates set up accros the site.  The herja did brilliantly.  Hit everything and didn't have any issues climbing over it all. No issues with the car.  Nothing Broken or fell off.   Was a brilliant test for it.  No videos sorry.  I was having to much fun to remember ha. Next time definitely get have some.

A few orders placed for my chassis.   Helping a friend build a sporty with my chassis and some spare parts.  He is super excited to be building one. I also have  2 more chassis sets on order to put together if anyone is interested in.
