Alex Zorko (nicjasno), has been producing some great videos for LPE Power, with tutorials about real car mechanisms and how one can use LEGO to mimic them with closer realism. Basically they're useful notes and tips on how to translate car technology from real life into LEGO.
So far we got four videos covering topics related with gearboxes and suspension setups:
- Gearbox plus clutch and how do they work (4+R example in the first tutorial).
- Caster angle (more about at: Wikipedia; RCTek)
- Kingpin inclination angle (more about at: Wikipedia)
- Simple multilink rear suspension
Althought the suspension series is planned to continue with other interesting topics to follow, like: Toe In and Toe Out, Bounce (Bump) steer, Full front multilink setups, McPherson setups and so on...
Below the four video tutorials released so far,
However, this is not the first time someone addresses topics like these within LEGO cars. For instance, Sheepo's SuperCar 2011 "Porsche 911 (997) Turbo Cabriolet PDK" [1, 2] and his Modular Platform System (MPS) are very good examples of past work on these same subjects (Camber angle , Ackermann steering , Caster angle , Kingpin inclination and Multilink rear axle ).
