As far as price-I am waiting on quotes from the machinist who is making the bearing carrier and other machined parts. The timing all depends on them as well. I think I may have to try a different machine shop!When, Where, and How much??????
Awww! You have a good eye! I noticed my mistake at about 11:00 this morning! I am correcting it-shouldn't effect the rest of the design. I am just glad the flaw was caught before prototyping! Thanks for your input!Looks like your on the right track. But it looks like in your drawing it's plated out towards the end of the snout of the spindle. The disc brake part of the wheel hub goes over that snout, you might want to double check that.
Besides that it looks great.
The suggested retail was $950 it should have been $1,300 for the pair with no bearings. At that cost there were no margins for dealers let alone for me.Thats why I stopped making them,plus other companies started making steel ones for less money. I started making them almost 2 years ago now.why did you stop making them???
how much did you sell them for???
would they handel a 30 foot jump???
they look verry nice!!!
NICE PART!!! How come it isn't being made?I just wanted to comment on a couple of things about these spindles. Fisrt the price debate going on about them on that other Forum. They seem to be in the price range that I expected, thats were mine were.
I had billet spindles made some time ago and poured alot of money into the R&D. It's one thing to have a CAD drawing and say it's all great. It's another thing to have it made and subject it to forces that cant be determind on a computer program.
I went thru 2 [CAD]designs before coming up with the final product. The first 2 showed thier weeknesses when they were tested. Learning from that we knew what changes had to be made.
I think the spindle looks great but, I'm not 100% sold on the steering arm. One of the two spindles that I had designed showed it's weekness that had a steering arm similar in design to these. The fact that the rhino has the steering behind the suspension puts a great deal of force on the steering arm especially when you land on the nose ,it want to rip them right off.
Also I'm suprised that they are being presold before any testing [to my knowledge] has been done on them. You might want to re-think that.
Ben, dont think I'm bangin on you.Just speaking from experience.
Here is a picture of the ones I used to make.
damm those where suposed to be mine LOLAlmost look like the ones I got from BiggJim
