Hi Brian,

The body will be inside the chassis. Effectively, there is not much room to tie things up !! so I should make specific plans to avoid mistakes ...

Will you be putting a radius on the fronts of the suspension arms (where the pivot point is)? Otherwise they may hit the frame and restrict the range of travel. Superb looking work!

Hello Guys,

Some news !

The concept seems simple, but perhaps effective and discreet!
And always better than just tire air ......grinning smiley

How's the project coming along Fabrice??
I would really like to hear/see more about it.
Specially how the differential has worked out.
Thank you.

Yep, been watching some aluminum casting videos. That's another thing
that I'd like to try before I cash in my chips. I've had the stuff on the shelf
for a couple of decades, i.e., sand, flasks, crucibles, etc., just need to
make up the metal melter furnace.
Can't waste time sleeping, just not enough time left to waste!
But......maybe a couple more winks before I head out to the barn to get
the heat goin'.
And.....I will, still, get the kart together one of these days. Just to many
interesting things left to try, which makes it hard to focus on just one thing.

Hi Denny,

Little progress right now !!! Some health problems (herniated disc and defective inner ear) not to mention that my garage is not heated !
So I'm looking forward to spring....
Soon news of the differential, and probably a full post on another differential more "classic"
I bought in China only blocks for golf car, electric or similar, and I will try to produce a small kit for our old country ....
I also have to buy a metal lathe bigger than my aging Myford
But do not worry, I'll keep you informed about the evolution of my project ....

Soon
Fabrice

Thank you Fabrice, hope you're feeling better and please do, keep in touch,
I find your work fascinating.
I still would like to try putting together a spur gear differential like yours. The
problem I am still having is finding gears cheap enough. I have been looking
at some spur gear bar stock from Grob inc. up in Grafton, Wisconsin USA.
They manufacture the Grob Band Saws but also produce cold rolled custom
gears and spline stock. I also need to find the time to play with this!!!!
I do most of my work on a Logan 10" engine lathe but I do have a
16" Lodge & Shipley lathe that is a hundred years old, which will
handle the really big projects.
I can sympathize with you, I suffered for a month this Fall with a pinched sciatic nerve.
That about made a cripple out of me.
That rear suspension will be a lot easier on anyone who has a back problem.

Hi Denny,

Look here, can be useful for you ....Gears
For my project, it seems to me that it cost me + -30 €

Tks, I believe you posted that for me a while ago. I have a chart from them in
my "Fabrice" folder for spur gears that they stock. The problem is they are
half way around the world.
Our source for gears here in the US are way more expensive.
But thanks for posting that link. If I can ever find the time, I think I will buy
spur gear stock lengths and cut my own as I need it.
