I'm really liking the operational looks of this box of wizardry...

Looks like popular demand turned it from unobtainable vaporware a guy made to a kit about $100.

I'd only been planning 1 servo for front ride, but that box with 4 suspension servos would be much more awesomeness.

I totally agree, that thing is awesome and when the van is rockin, man does it rock!

I saw it pop up on realistic rc page and was going to share but you beat me to it. Would work for the hearse too... Hook up an extra servo to make the skeleton/mummy in the back roll from side to side as well

I actually thought about your van when I saw that project on reddit a few weeks back. I think it would work great even with just a front and back servo for acceleration and braking.

Had some fun cruising at a meet.







The little van was pretty popular, even more when they noticed the hydro suspension, and 4wd. If there hadn't been model tractor pulling going on, i would have dropped a speaker into it and *really* gone out for a cruise.

I hadn't thought about it yet, but you're right it does look more like a happy character from Cars or Planes in that video.

Really I should have gone slower, but i wanted to show movement before the next little pulling tractor fired up

Crazy good.
Really gets the inspiration flowing for this guy.

You need to do a slower motion no doubts and another vid.

Just to cool.

Thanks guys, glad you're enjoying the madness!

Yeah i know it was moving way too fast. I just wanted to get some motion of it in a scale setting while it was fairly quiet between rips of those mini tractor pull guys constantly blowing out the audio.
Any idea if a flysky fs-i6 can slow down some channels, or if i'd need to run an add-on like a Servo-slow? Or i could pretend i had restraint to drive the hydros scale, heh.

Since 'lowrider' wasn't much of a design perameter for '4wd offroad van' chassis, I also need to adjust the tops of the fender liners to stop wheel rub at full stuff. It's gangster enough to do a standing 3 wheel, but driving on 3 it rubs the dumped tire with the articulation travel

I'd been hoping this chassis would also let me play around with a rear axle Chain-Bridge so i could understand that concept and chain placement vs forces better, but i've learned it's much more useful on 3-link than 4-link.

Once it warms up i'm going to be taking a lot more videos of stuff.
