Had to work on a customers chassis, but finally got back to the supermod. Welded in the new engine plate.

Braced the 3rd bearing mount.

Trianglated the rear section.

And added another brace the length of the chassis.

Now it should be fairly stiff.

A look at the rear from underneath.

Tonight after the turkey dinner I will start on the steering if I have the energy. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Fabbed up steering over the holiday. Started with the steering shaft.

Front hoop for the mount.

Then the old geometry classes kicked in and nailed it the first time. Steering from the front.

Pivot point.

Full left turn.

And full right turn.

The front bearing for the shaft is from Speedway Moters. Race car steering shaft mount. Thanks for the comments. Had it on the scales last night with everything in the seat that I have for it and it is at 280lbs. Still have some more parts to make but I think it is going to be lighter than my BP.

Do you get any kind of ackerman with that set-up?

Yes, that's why the tie rods are angled down to the spindles, when you are in a full turn notice that the tie rods are level and inline with each other. That makes the spread wider and gives you ackerman. This only applies to front steer set ups.

What if your pivot wasn't centered and the tie rods were drastically different lengths?

Mine still does it with unequal length tierods. i thought about making them equal length after I already welded the pivot point, but it seems to work ok so far. Find out when I drive it for sure.
