IFS IRS Turbo V8 Buggy, finally here!

Postby churchill » Fri Nov 13, 2015 9:07 pm

Finally someone has done it, IFS and IRS on a buggy that works. Check out how smooth it climbs hills due to the low unsprung mass but also shows the weakness of the more complex independant suspension system. I wonder if we'll see more buggies like this.

Thanks Crash, what do you actually type to get the youtube links to work?

I forgot about the orange one with hummer portals, that was well done too. The IFS IRS setup is really works well up hills.
