Our friend Frank from theworkshop.ca has just completed the Dune Buggy Electric Conversion Part 4. We have been following this project right to the stage it is now, as in part 3 of the Dune Bug E build there was lots of fabrication. The machine is really taking shape now! The re-use of existing mechanical parts is great, it demonstrates that there is no need to always run out and purchase new parts for every build.

“The shocks have approx 3″ of absolute travel when they bottom-out. If they were placed perpendicular to the swing-arm at the midway point between the axel and the swing-arm pivot the wheels would enjoy almost 6” of travel, though the shocks would be loaded at twice the equivalent weight than at the actual axel. While these are placed past the axel by just less than 1/4 of the pivot to axel length and as such should provide roughly 75% of the available travel, but 125% of the same load capacity if placed at the axel. “

    What I can’t understand is why you don’t have a good steel bench to work off of. There’s no reason to be cutting and welding that stuff on the floor.
