I can't think of the name of it, but years ago there was a tractor that had a cab that looked like a PU cab, and the rear opened to allow entrance. An guy I know picked up a PU cab, planning to...

A bit of additional info:
QCAD is 2D, and pretty powerful for a free program. (The Pro version is also only 2D, but at a very reasonably price, just 33 EUROs.)
Sketchup is 3D. (The Pro version...

I have seriously thought of adding an over-ride button for the brake lights, to maybe help keep people off of my tail on the interstate.

In Ohio, the state is now using some sort of liquid brine, which I've heard is even worse than road salt. And here is the real clincher - last year, when we had a mild winter, they put it down even...

Any more pictures of that? The wheels & tires look a bit more substantial than the ones a lot of these vehicles use, & I think I like these better. Is it front engine?

It is in this context (scrub & consequent squealing on tight turns) that I first started thinking about this, and decided that since the real point of pivot is the point at which the KPI meets the...

Now you all have me confused again. So are you saying that the KPI has no effect on the Ackerman line? In other words, like on a typical old-style go cart that has no KPI at all - just straight up...

Thanks for your response. I hadn't known that people didn't significantly modify the steering geometry for front steer vehicles. But I now think I (finally) understand how this is to be figured. ...

Yes. My understanding is that (with the wheels turned clear to lock) the distance from the center of the outside tire out to that point where the two lines cross, is the turning radius. That's...

Ackerman Principle & King Pin Inclination

I generally prefer to post to existing threads, but the closest to what I wanted to discuss is in a thread that is over 10 years dead. That's a pretty old horse to dig up.
