1/8 scale Lamborghini Miura SV chassis
About this creation

I used a new construction technique that allows for a more low profile chassis and thus the seat can be mounted 2-3 studs lower than usual. I flipped the beams so the holes are vertical. If I remember correctly I saw this suggested by nico71 on another moc I was looking at. It works perfectly









its a bit hard to see, but if you look behind that drive shaft, you can see the clutch
that L bracket is connected to an axle with a throw arm that disengages the clutch. on the part of the bracket closest to the wheel is where the linkage attaches, and then runs to a pedal underneath the steering column. the pedal is tensioned with a small rubber band. The clutch works flawlessly





this is the underside of the gearbox, the shift linkages are on top instead of the bottom like my Pagani zonda. This makes the chassis more low profile. using shift linkages like this instead of putting the gearbox directly between the seat allows for more realistic shifter movement and allows the interior to be cleaner, more accurate and to scale. It also allows for the seat to be placed much lower in the chassis. The linkage you see by it self is the clutch linkage.



Here is the chassis for my 1/8 scale Lamborghini miura. it has a 5+R gearbox with remote linkage, a WORKING CLUTCH, steering and suspension. it is the most complex and accurate chassis I have ever built

Re the clutch discussion, I've made a friction clutch by grinding down a couple of three-wide disks and attaching rubber from a balloon using model kitset cement. I've used a sort of slider mechanism to allow for the movement and it works really well. Not sure how well any of my pics detail it, but I'll try and add some good detail pics on my up coming Aston Martin Vantage. Big fan of your work mate!!

Quoting Ed Crook hey, any chance you could provide pictures of the clutch and gearbox system without the rest of the car? e.g. what the top of the actual gearbox looks like there's no doubt its your design(!), just want to really understand how it works and build it myself! Cheers, I dont have any on hand, but it consists of a drive ring the the dark gray clutch gears that are used in transmissions. Basically when you push the clutchpedal, the drive ring dis-engages from the clutch gear . Since the clutch gear can move on the axle, the engine the engine will not turn when the gearbox does. I have been working on an actual friction clutch, but thats still in the works. C

Great. Thanks for showing us your clutch mechanism. I'll use something like that if I may but you'll deserve the credit.

Very Good ! The gearbox techniques is very pratical to have a lower chassis. Good job as usual, keep working and thanks for the credit ;)

I agree with Matt James, especially on the part about building a stand-alone clutch to demonstrate to us all how it works... Brilliant!

You're a genius mate.. have to see how that clutch system works.. any further detail? Could you post a small stand-alone version to explain further. I'm in awe!

This is nothing short of amazing. I would love to see a video of the clutch working.
