Have you tested that differential yet Fabrice??? Or is it slated for the
new kart?

As usual I'll be following your build with interest, for an "amateur" you work to a very professional standard.

Hi Chris,

Thank you for the comment, if my ideas sometimes a little "crazy" can help, it's good for the community ....smiling smiley

Like Chris says "for an "amateur" you work to a VERY professional standard."
Those Bugatti renderings aren't the work of an "amateur", nor is the workmanship
that went into the differential.
I've been following you work on the differential with much interest. Applying the power
to the ground at both wheels without locking up the axle has to be beneficial in any
sort of 4-wheel vehicle.
The Peerless 100 series axles are an improvement for our karts but a spur gear
limited slip differential is the ultimate in my opinion. The problem is no one makes
one that is sized for a cyclekart.....that is.....until now.
Please keep us updated on your test results.

Errm, are you suggesting that using the back end of a 125cc scooter to build a Morgan isn't "a little "crazy"" Fabrice? I think we're very similar in our "I'll just try doing it this way" outlook.

Denny,

I also think that the diff limited slip is more interesting for our CK and much cheaper to manufacture at home, it is also less complicated (the bevel gears are more delicate to align than the spur gears)
I also think the Perless models are fine, but my wife managed to twist her 25.4mm axle with a slight shock, so I preferred to use a 30mm axle on my new CK

Chris,

Yes, I think we all have a little bit of madness ....grinning smiley

Well Fabrice they do say you've got to be a little bit mad to stay sane, some people say I'm saner than most!

Hi Fabrice,

What CAD program are you using for your 3D modeling? Is it Sketchup? Did you create the motor and TAV from scratch or did you import it from the warehouse?

Vince.

Hi Vince,

I draw with SketchUp, and I drew all the parts (engine, torque, wheels, etc ...) from the real parts
If you are interested, I think I can send the files
maybe some small mistake, but no impact on the general dimentions. I do not know this drawing software very well ...confused smiley

Hi Fabrice,
Yes I would be interested in the files. I have used SketchUp before in modeling my simple woodworking projects but they are not as complicated as drawing the engine and wheels of a cyclekart.
Thanks,
Vince.

Will your body cover the outside of the frame?
If not, you may have wished you put the holes on the outside of the frame, as you have little meat left for fastening things to the inside???confused smiley
