Whats this? Another contraption from Vii and Rybec? Well duh
This time around i had my go at sculpting a chassis i found for a dune buggy.
After a proper suspension was put in place, and some minor edits, Rybec was interested in coming up with a rather simple, but effective form of traction control It doesn’t so much as keep the wheel from slipping, rather, it uses apply force to shunt the wheels to the ground, unless theres no ground beneath the car, then it doesn’t apply any force. From there, it applies torque depending on it’s current speed, and the incline of the ground beneath it. The buggy has been able to dominate some of the more realistic hills and cliffs of buttes, and i’m proud to say that together, we’ve built a contraption that likes to run around at 70 mph. Sometimes on a good day, if the duplicator is being nice, it’ll go even faster. I’ve caught this thing hitting 89 mph! All wheel powered =D
Then i went ahead and added ACF and some armor plating to the thing. Replaced the rear wheels for a smoother ride as well.
