Compact independent rear suspenion
About this creation




this is an independent rear suspension with differential that is only 12 studs wide. I placed a 15 stud beam in the photos for a size comparison. It uses two small trialing arms with gears, in combination with horizontal links. think of it as half a wishbone suspension combined with a trailing arm suspension

Quoting Ben Schevers Great work. Just one question: Does the driving axle still move smooth when you compress the springs? When you look at the side view, you can see that the driving axle has to made a rotating motion (on the gears) and a linear motion (on the spring). Doestnt that give any friction?
just a little bit when the springs are at full compression, the axles can still turn when the diff is roatated. the distance the arms with the gears move in relation to the springs is minimal. It is the only way to make such a compact design.

Very nice live axle suspension. What kind of torque can it carry?

I haven't tested it with a motor or anything, but it works perfectly in mini chassis I have it in.

Quoting randy romero an excellent piece of work!! i would love to make more technic creations, but i guess i just don't know how that all works. are there guides that explain that stuff? can you point me in the right direction?
There aren't any "official" guides. Look around on brickshelf, there is a lot of good stuff on there. Most of what I build is my own design. I just seem to be inherently good with mechanical things like suspensions and gearboxes and what not. I have been thinking about making a folder with all my car parts and explaining how they work.

Quoting Armaan Ujra very good idea... Can I use a modified version for my creations? And did you get my new comment on your Dodge Viper ACR's page?
Go for it. I managed to make it only 10 studs wide by moving the controll arms in 1 stud removing the 1 stud bushin, and modifying the shock towers.

Genius, as usual. How much is the travel limited relative to regular wishbone suspension?

none, the springs can fully compress

Quoting Firas Abu-Jaber This way too creative! I really need to buy some technic sets to get suspension and steering, I don't have enough technic parts... good job any way.
I think I can make it one stud narrower. The dodge charger I am building will be not much bigger than most of your cars. Of course you could easily put suspension in a 16 wide car if you didn't have a differential or drive train.
