custom extended chassis plates. home made

Post by bigbigbrig » Sun Mar 02, 2014 8:14 pm

I bought a 1" extended rear drive shaft from the old truckzilla kit. I redesigned the chassis around that drive shaft and keeping everything as low as possible.
Let me know what you think.

The shocks have about 1.5 inches of travel.
I wrote this up as a cnc program so I could mass produce them.
I'm making a cover plate for the bottom now.

They are made of 6061 grade aluminum so they will never break.

I'm a machinist and I do CNC programing but have no CNC of my own :( if I did, I'd spend money in materials only and I'd make everything my self too. Good job, it looks like you are on your game and know what you are doing. Share that skid plate with us when finished with it.

I work in a cnc shop all day and I work at a trade school teaching cnc work two nights a week. I see these machines 60 hours a week. The school lets me make whatever I want. It give us non-traditional cnc projects to work on.

Oh man you are blessed! I am jealous . I'm good friends of the instructor in the machinist technology center where I live . Just recently , I got a 3 year license for auto CAD and I have mastercam here at home so I can take my projects over there but have to let the students make them and I'm not that patient lol so lately I just rather buy.

Good gods, those look like about 8mm thick aluminum? I don't think I've ever seen "overkill" defined so well! Awesome stuff, man.
