    Wow!
    I like things that move. Pretty much limits me to cars and strippers.

    I don't have to much trouble with the shock angle as you can valve and add heavier springs
    to hold up and handle the car as far as I know but I do have a question about what CV's can
    angle that much???


    Awesome looking and great ideas though.
    Now if only we could make parts to do what these designs do.
    Like R/C cars. Some cool ideas there but for their weight size parts work on them but not on the
    heavy cars we have.

    Nice though thanks.

    Wild concept. Not really realistic. Those CV's would be red hot after a short run. If they were still together. Might as well have a flying Delorean.

    Now that NOBAMA has PROVEN he is the absolute WORST president in the history of history Jimmy Carter can thank him for stealing the dunce crown.

    How about if they were small gearboxes As long as they followed the CL of the suspension components it would work......and without CVs'

    I actually have been looking for some small 90 degree gearboxes that that were light and could take some power.

    Have trailing arms with shafts running down them. Sprockets at the front with a chain tapping power off the motor and running it to each side. Then the little gearboxes sending power to the tires from the shafts.

    The closest thing I have found so far is shaft drive motorcycle rear hubs. But cannot find anything close so that one faces one way and one the other. Thought about using to identical and jsut putting them both on the same side ofthe rear tires. The one on the outside would look a little funny though.
