1000cc Trophy Kart Build Pt. 3 | Mounting the Rear Axle

  Դիտումներ 156,680


8 ամիս առաջ

We build the beginning of a dashboard for the 1000cc BMW powered Trophy Kart! We were especially careful to leave PLENTY of room for feet & legs. We also mounted the rear differential! Out solid axle is from a 1981 Chevrolet Chevette. It's heavy, but it ought to be absolutely bulletproof for reliably putting the BMW K100's 90 horsepower to the ground.
Thanks for Watching!

If the driveshaft turned the opposite direction all you need to do is flip the diff over like they did on some old race cars with a reverse rotation cam so when the engine torqued the left front tire would pull down.

I know this is probably too late but do not use parallel four Bar rear suspension. Use triangulated four Bar system, there are A lot of designs. These systems allow the rear wheels to move independently , Parallel four bar works well with drag racing requirements but not off road requirements, I found this out the hard way while working on a 48 Ford rear suspension, while I had the parallel four bar mocked up I discovered that when one wheel hit a bump the other wheel moved up The same distance, not staying on the ground. A triangulated four Bar System can deliver nearly independent suspension action. Mock it up and see for yourself.

Looks like a Jeep ax4 transmissions to np231/241 input shaft would be the right spline count, diameter and length but you’d have to have it drilled and taped on one end to accept a yoke. In fact if you wanted to go 4wd I’m betting you that you could mount a np231 directly up to that transmission output shaft lol.

Hey i think you should cut off the factory spring pot , leaving that part on the rear axel makes it look real ghetto just cut it off and weld some tabs plus you will get better geometry with the hyme closer to the axel

The part you removed from the BMW drive shaft is called a final drive, not a differential. A differential is for a vehicle with 2 rear wheels, the motorcycle only has one rear wheel so it has a final drive.

Between the long snout of the pinion on that axle and the small drive shaft off the motor I fear your notl going to get the suspension droop your looking for to get a smooth ride at high speeds. Wouldn't it be best to pull the small drive shaft for a longer one with u joints or look in to a different axle with a smaller pinion snout. I completely understand the Chevette axle it's probably the narrowest axle you could find. I'm just trying to see it work as you explained and I'm only seeing a 4 to 6 inch droop.

Cant wait to see how this project turns out!! Although, Miata shocks and coil-overs aren't gonna give you the plush, long travel suspension that your wanting and that this chassis needs. Miata suspension is made for a 2,000 pound car and at the most have 5 inches of travel. Go on eBay and get yourself some used shocks off a Polaris RZR or equivalent SxS. They are around the same price as used Miata suspension and will give you a lot better ride then any car shock will. Keep up the good work!

I'd suggest changing the torque tube mount so it pivots vertically. The stock rubber isolator won't have enough flex for the suspension travel you want. You could do it easily by trimming the stock mounting plate and welding on a washer to each side vertically. Add pieces of angle to the mounting plates on the frame and bolt the washers to them loosely so they will pivot. If you use the torque tube as a suspension link, you won't need to add 4 more links. In fact, it will probably cause binding. The tube will control pinion and brake torque as well as forward and reverse thrust. The coil overs will control roll and jounce. I would extend the outer suspension links to pivot on the same axis as the front torque tube mount to control yaw. BTW the gear ratio of the Chevette rear should be 3.36:1. Also, Chevette brakes really SUCK. Consider changing to disc brakes. Nice start on this build!

If you pull that drive shaft you will have a u joint at the motor. You should be able to go from there all the way back to the rear end. That is how motorcycle trike kits are engineered. It should be a lot stronger. Also if you look that short drive shaft may be a rubber cushion and won't handle that rear end with out slipping.

Y’all should remove that goofy extension on the axle, it’s gonna really limit yalls travel having to build around that cause there’s a lot of travel potential in this build
Nff 8 ամիս առաջ
To get that amount of travel from a miata coilover you will need to do a pushrod system with ratioed rates. 6 inches of strut travel multiplied into 18 inches of axel travel.
Nff 8 ամիս առաջ
You need a 4:1 minimum ratio to deal with the 4.5 inches of stroke on the miata coilovers and need to be set to sit 2 inches into the shocks travel to maintain that equlibriem so the rear maintains its 9 of comprssion and 9 of sag. As far as linkage for the rear end go 4 link 2 on the bottom out wide and 2 on the top close to center. Will allow for large flex and articulation. If ya need some insperation look at r/c scale crawlers suspention setups. Oh and loose the torque tube on the dif it wont allow the dif to move vurtically it will cause arching in the travel.

I would skip the 4 link and run a trailing arm setup and connect the mounts at the same spot as the front u joint off the trans. Then use the torque tube as a center mount to keep everything working. As for the drive shaft. Remove it from the trans and have the end cut off and make a short section to adapt to the rear end.
