Well, im finally back from deployment; now progress can continue.

I really didnt like how the spring mounts turned out. so I cut them off. the priority for me on this front end is to keep the track width the same front to rear which presents multiple issues, the main being a lack of space. After having many beers trying to figure out how to remake the mounts, this is what I came up with. I like it. Yes It' mounted to the radius rod, but I really don't see an issue. The spring im using is super stiff and there's hardly any weight on the front so im gonna roll the dice here. With some words of wisdom I might add a gusset!

so, lets here it!

Justin,
Welcome back and thank you for your service.
This is similar to what I used on the Track Roadster. Have you checked what the wheel maximum turn angle will be? Moving the radius rod farther out toward the end of the axle did increase the turning circle on mine. I know your spring and axle is lower than mine which helps. It was a compromise a tight turn or good suspension travel.

Thanks Al, much appreciated!
I wont have the best turning radius, but neither does the Gipsy. only issues have been moving it around the pits and whatnot. I too decided on good suspension travel!
Do you have the link to your build, I couldnt find it...

Welcome back Justin, I had wondered where you had gone.
I think you are correct about not needing loads of turning ability. If you need to get out and lift the front end around it's not often too much of a problem. I must have a look at what sort of angle a road car can achieve smiling smiley

We'll, I got the spring mounts done and had to set it on the ground! Seems like it'll work, so that's good. No need for a panhard either.
Next will be getting the rear axle set and then making the front mount that the spring attaches to. I didn't take into account the suspension travel when I was coming up with the ride height. I dont want to bottom out!

That indeed is going to be a low one. I'm on the same line of thinking as Justin in that as long as the turn radius is sufficient when you are driving it forward you are good. True it may take a bit more jockeying to get it placed in the pits but that is just part of the game.

The first kart has a pretty bad turning radius and hasn't ever been an issue on the track. This one might be a bit worse! Oh well, we'll see how it does.

As far as ride height is concerned, I didn't suspension travel into account. Hopping on the chassis makes it bottom out currently, gonna have to adjust the mount height accordingly!

Christmas in May! Little rack and pinion came in! Now I can move forward with the spring mount as I'm going to incorporate the rack and pinion mount with it.

One more pic of the chassis, just cause I'm so happy that part is just about done!
