Hey guys...everyone building here is amazing and I'm not even gonna pretend to know as much as you engineering madmen. I'm starting out with a smaller scale bridging vehicle bout the size of this off road high performance kart

Welcome Nubie. Hope u hang out for a while. I'm glad to hear ur wife thinks you have it bad man for 2 reasons...1) It means we're all in the same boat and 2) if u have a wife it means ur old enough to give educated replys to the threads and not fill the board with "cool" and "awesome" and shite like that. Thanks for stopping by control.

P.S. No-one will judge you if u use ur real name instead of Control.

I'm here at least until I finish my build. I'm becoming a obsessed with trying to figure out the steering engineering for the tumbler bridging vehicle. it looks like 2 sets of traditional steering components with the tie rods and steering arms reversed on both sides. any help with this would be most appreciated. (not cool or awesome).





So here i am Dee. here to stay.

Hey Conrad, Welcome to the site.  I am in the process of building the Tumbler.  We have completed the first stage and the passenger compartment is completed. The second stage is to install the rear link system for the rear duallies.  The third stage is installing the front end and it is complex.  I am documenting each stage and looking at what was built and trying to improve on it.  Your definately welcome to view my log and if you have any questions I will try to answer them if I can.  Big Wave Dave

ok so I've started. I'm drawing out the bottom chassis frame on plywood. I'm planning 1 1/2 inch square steel for the bottom. this will be my first weld in a long time. I used to do a little arc welding but now everybody is saying mig welding is easier. looking at some lincoln electric welders at home de-pot. i'm excited!

Nice Jack, Nice. Except I just came back from de-pot and they don't have a very big selection, not to mention people that know anything (at the local one here anyways...). So off i went today to a steel shop. priced out some pieces and to my surprise it wasn't that expensive. However, after describing what i wanted to build (i'm telling people it's a suped-up off road go kart, cause the bridging vehicle has to be kept secret of course ) the welder I was looking at will not be sufficient. i was looking at a 110 welder due to it's inexpensive pricing, but looks like i can't cheese out on this. everyone in the welding business is telling me for what i'm doing, i'll need better penetration and strong durable welds (after all, jumping into caves and from building to building will add lots of stress to the vehicle). everyones recommending a 220 MIG upgradable to TIG. being that I am taking this project very seriously, I'll have to wait a little longer now to purchase such an animal. the little 110 i was looking at was around 2-300 bucks....now I'm looking at almost 3 times that at this local welding supply place. the guys there are very cool and one guy there has done everything from go karts, to quads, to dune buggy's. looks like I'm gonna have to re-budget and be a little patient. it's killing me so, but i know it will be worth it once i get what i need. so here's my lowly beginnings of a project that i have to wait on...
