Zoran,

I've recently posted a table of the various bores available for the 35mm and 37mm O/D bearings, it might be useful to you in giving you options for spindle sizes, it's in the drawings thread.

As researching many ck builds on here the front axles on many ck's have to much drop on them more than a normal 3 inch drop they should have when first designed. witch is putting to much load/stress on your spindles hub bolt/welded joint/etc that's a major design flaw there and the design /etc of ya spindles thats problem number 2 .and also using knock off chin/Taiwan spindles is problem number 3 there's a.easy solution to fix the problem of busting ya spindles/etc.. see above and below pictures. Tipo/hint Redesign both axle and spindles. cheers

So, now we should cast and machine our own spindles? And, how do you propose these solve the problems? Do you even know what problems have been identified, and the solutions proposed? Will these spindles have materially stronger axles? Axle attachments?

Dude. Go build something.

Your post is devoid of valueable information. It is an assortment of slanders against random cart designs and parts, and some random links from the web.

Also, if you use complete sentences, people may understand what it is you’re trying to say. The deliberate (I hope) misspellings and abbreviations are not charming, they are confusing.

The point of a forum is to communicate, not garner attention.

Peace,
Robert

The amount of drop in an axle design has no bearing on the amount of stress placed on the spindle (stub axle). The main consideration with the amount of drop has to do with scrub line - the point at which a flat tire would allow the under-carriage to come into contact with the road way. (Although it would seem good to me to stay a bit above the literal scrub line, because of humps and/or debris in the road way. I came up over a hill in Minnesota in my 62 Chrysler, and suddenly there was a heaved spot in the blacktop right in front of me. I had to decide to swerve, hit it with one tire or the other, or straddle it. I straddled it, and I hit it with the main front cross-member. The whole car hesitated for an instant, before it sheared the top off of the blacktop, and went on. And I was running 15" wheels on a car that was designed with 14" wheels.)

Dude,

I DID do research, which I how I designed the spindles for my pedal car. They still need the final angle and shape of the steering arms determined when all the wheels are in their final positions, but that’s small matter.

And, I AM building a car. I’m making brackets and rivets, still, and finalizing the body frame shapes. Also, I’m laying out the steering wheel.

So...

Peace,
Robert

Robert, responding to Louis is a waste of time and effort, I know it's difficult sometimes, occasionally he puts up something promising, but it always degenerates into begging for money, and / or abuse. I've decided he's best ignored.

I'm leaning towards weld failure closely followed by fatigue at certain locations. In combination that's a recipe for disaster. I ended up going to a stepped set up. It goes from 5/8 outter then steps up to a 3/4 followed by the portion I weld coming in at 1". I had noticed failures and wanted to try and solve that on my kart. Here's a quick photo.
