Right, so I thought of an idea about how one axle can move in two directions while being restricted; that is leaning and that moves up and down, as if using suspension (which it does). I played around with ballsockets a bit and came up with a pretty decent concept.
Me and Butler winded up recording it and here you go. Please do focus on how the axles and bodies react to each other. It might not be that obvious in the video.
And here are some pictures of my later on developed design of the offroad gokart. It works exactly the same, but the two suspension parts in the rear and front are invisible. So there. I was gonna build a small gokart motor on it aswell but I sorta got uninspired.
- Use a similar setup and snap the moving parts 30 degrees down.
- Setup shocktowers.
- See those eyes? Connect those parts with the body with the adv.ballsocket tools using the following settings:
X min: -35
X max: 30
Y min: -10
Z min: 0
Z max: 0
Uncheck Free Movement.
The Y values decides how much the suspension will be able to lean sideways. And X determines how much it’ll go up and down. Don’t forget to increase weight and shit.
- Shoot the rig on these points with any elastic setting you wish. Now, I won’t give you details on it because it’s very personal how much you want it to jump up and down or just be as stiff as a kok. But I suggest a little more Relative Damping than Damping.

- Now make your own turning system. Whichever method you want to use. They all work. Thing is, if you’re using this method, you need to place the slave on the same prop the spindles are connected to.
This is the system I used:
I’m sure you’re all familiar with it.
