1000cc Trophy Truck Build | Rolling Chassis + Steering!

  Դիտումներ 182,083


7 ամիս առաջ

We fabricate steering for the front of our 1000cc BMW powered trophy kart, giving us a rolling chassis! Unfortunately, the steering needs heavy revision. Because of the twin I beam front suspension setup (and well over 12 inches of travel), we're running into excessive bump steer issues. We use a 90 degree PTO box, heim joints, tubing, and flat bar to build the steering, but it has more bump steer than we'd like, the steering ratio is too quick, and the steering box we're using may not hold up to the abuse we'll be throwing at this machine. We've ordered parts and will tackle it next time!
Thanks for Watching!

I am glad you guys leave your learning moments in your videos. This is how most of us encounter these type issues in real life as we DIY. Learning how to think through, work through and re-evaluate potential solutions is crucial to learn. Unbiased critical thinking is a valuable tool. A couple other favorite channels I watch (looking at you Junkyard Digs and Mustie1) also show their work and I learn right along with you guys (It’s also great fun!). I appreciate the reality in your real-world builds. Great work, I subscribed a while ago, and I watch often!

Hey guys.. I have eventually learnt to eliminate bump SCRUB, which is when the wheels push outwards. The maths is actually very simple. Check out my electric skateboards travel. Contact me.

I couldn't help but laugh when John called a 2000 Kubota a beater. Granted, I haven't seen it yet, but I've got a '52 Case in my yard that I dug out of my grandpa's shed to replace the engine. Gas powered, 2wd, hand clutch, no power steering. Plus the starter's bad and I can't find the crank, so I have to pull it with the truck to start it. I think you're going to find a lot more uses for your Kubota than you expect. Loader tractors are awesome.

I say keep the steering as-is and use a good steering wheel. Not so hard to steer when it's moving, my dirt track race car is the same way.

With i beam i think you need to have the pitman arm at the same angle as the steering knuckles and an arm that goes to the opposite tire that the steering box is on. And the tie rods joined at the same pivot point as the beams.

I have a yangdong 3 cylinder diesel in a mazda minitruck, it isn't hard at all, maybe get another beater tractor and yank the engine for a minitruck swap, or buy one new from the factory for 1400 dollars.

If you all start having bad bump steer problems, try changing the angle of your drag links by refabing your "pitman arms" to change the angle. Ive heard of scenerios with that issue.

To fix thre really hard steering, put a sprocket on the 90 box and put a smaller sprocket and a chain and hook steering shaft from wheel to the smaller sprocket, boom steering reduction, should be an easy fix for you guys Edit, hadn't finished video when I posted that comment, yes a rack would make things much much better, can't wait to see this beast finished

Keep up the good work guys can't wait to see that Beast trophy truck running. I would have liked to have seen you bought one that was wrecked or something or a frame if you could have got it cheap enough. Or maybe the plans for a frame although you guys did really good with yours. Let me know what you think of this video I guarantee you you will use it somewhere am-posts.info/list/r6vOtX2yp3_NjnY/video

I built a mini buggy for the kids with a 420 predator and atv a arms. I used a john deer tractor steering box. It was slow steering like almost 4 turns lock to lock but the kids had no trouble steering it. Worked out really good with a small go cart steering wheel. I bolted a knob it it when I was rally sporting the buggy

There's no way something is hp rated and can't handle torque. The hp only rating is probably because it's marketed to be used with electriç motors.

I’m no expert at i beam suspension but what I do know is the steering performance is highly influenced by the position of your pivot points and the length of the steering arms. The channel wings world has a good video on their steering setup for their f-150 watching it might help.

I think that its design of the front part is somewhat complicated and would make future handling difficult ... in addition, I do not see it as very resistant as one would believe ... My advice, little taken into account, would simplify everything and use a suspension like a car. ..more simple..stable and easy to maneuver

If that PTO box is of any quality, then there is NO chance you'll break it. If you mounted that PTO box to an implement (like a 3-point tiller) you could stall your Kubota out on it and not damage the box.

HOW TO FIX THE BUMP STEER!!! Align the ends of the joints on the idler arms with the pivot point of the twin-beam arms. That way, as the suspension compresses, the steering pivot point remains closer the same length. A little play from there would get you to net zero bump steer. Also, add the offset of the knuckles ball joint location to the steering points location, and raise the idler arms to accommodate for the camber change. The higher the idler point over the arm point, the less change in toe for a given camber change, in suspension compression.

Draw an imaginary line between the upper and lower ball joint at the wheel. Then find the center. Trace from there to the pivot point on the other end of the arm. Your steering arm needs angle needs to be parallel and the same length to prevent bump steer For Ackerman draw a line between the front end pivots to the center of the rear axle. Now put your steering tie rod ends on those lines. Easy money You'll realize the limit of a 22hp tractor pretty quick. They just dont weigh enough. I have a 50hp tractor. You will be limited to a 4ft bush hog and limited lift wise to 500-700lbs on the loader.

It is pretty simple, if the pivot point of the steering is in line with the pivot point of the control arm. You have no bumb steer. Since the right steering linkage is no not anymore in line, you will have bumpsteer at the right weel

Hello, Any tractor shop will have the 1 3/8 z6 coupling you need for the steering box. As long as you use the original Miata steering arms facing forwards you will have bumpsteer. Cheers from Belgium.
