Wheel assembly - design and fabrication.

July 16, 2017

With the X1 'core' chassis locked down on the prototype bench, the next step is the wheel assemblies. This is a major stage in the design process, as decisions made now, will have long ranging consequences on the success of the project.

 

Track, wheelbase, caster, camber, camber curve, kpi, ackerman, scrub radius, tow, wheel travel, track rods, bump steer, sway bars, wishbone pickup points, roll centers and ride height, are all design points that have to be considered and successfully addressed.

 

We use SolidWorks CAD software to resolve the design, before going on to make the jigs and then machine and fabricate the prototype components.
