good lawd!

still havent figured out how each wheel gets power. must have a drive shaft going to each corner (but how?) into independenat pumpkins? chain or belt driven? ive never seen anything like that before!
im impressed!

Torque is the measure of force that gets the cap off your beer.

That is an engineering marvel! What that does, is allow you to get stuck in places that no one else can get to, to retrieve you....

I was thinking the same thing towards the end of the clip when he was in that ravine and somebody said those are 39 and halfs. He would need to get helicoptered out of there! That thing is sick!

That is one wild suspension. Seems like the engineering theory is sound-- just need to make it more "user friendly" and the military and NASA would be knocking at his door.

Read the little description beside the video - a 9" in the center with chain drive to each wheel...

Quote:
Cams hydraulic Chain-drive 4x4, about 7 feet of up OR down motion on each tire: specs below Engine is a fuel injected Ford 5.0 V8 out of a '93 cobra mustang, c4 transmission and t-case out of an early bronco. 9" w/ 5.38 gears and ARB air locker mounted in the center (below driver) running chain gears on the ends where the swing arms pivot. Swing arms are hydraulically controlled individually or together, and there is coil spring and shock suspension as well. large chains running inside the swing arms turn hummer gear reduction (2:1) hubs at each wheel. tires are 39.5". The steering is linked through the swing arms as well and the steering box is mounted just infront of the axle below the driver. body construction is steel tubing (mostly DOM) and the total weight is 5900 LB.

I'm guessing hydraulic drive, but the speed on the one shot is pretty high so I'm not sure.
