Maserati CT8 build
« on: 27 September 2020, 05:33:16 pm »
Ok getting started here, got a couple of front wheels and picking up an axle from Gemini in the week. I've explored various options for front suspension and keep coming back to coil overs, compact, adjustable and cheap.
Not cut any metal yet but mocked up what I think will work AND locate the front axle, will also have radius rods close to kingpins. I used something similar to this to mount the shocks for a transverse leaf hotrod, tucked away out of sight for a clean look, worked well.
I've used a 3:1 ratio for the bell crank as that's what my mountain bike has, may need to tinker as I have discovered that longer coil overs have a higher Spring rate.
I ll be getting steel cut and welded up in to basic chassis in the week, then onto the front end.
I seem to be only able to post one pic at a time !

Looks like a great design. I havent seen that style on a cyclekart before, especially not in the UK. Graham Appleyard uses coilovers on his brooklands special and that seems to drive amazingly. That being said, leaf spring karts also run amazingly
