Experimental Wider Axles 1.13

Some wider axles to accommodate larger tires

Tags:
  1. Worked on the D-series

    nachtstiel
    I did some reworking of the rear 3-link suspension on the D-series and removed the standard live axle as I was unable to correct the axle wrapping issue.

    The rear suspension now has longer travel and the axle now has a much lesser shift to the left when it reaches the extension limit. Also reworked some variables to reduce the body roll on hard acceleration, although it is still there with powerful engines.

    Also updated the wide 48-inch config to align with the new parameters.

    The really...
  2. Time for the Wideside!

    nachtstiel
    The burnside gets wide!

    Known issues:

    The front suspension will twist under braking until the tension from the twisting cancels out the torsion force.

    Taller tires (100 inches or more) cause the wheels to bend inward
  3. It's time for some wide hauling!

    nachtstiel
    I added the T-Series to the list of widened vehicles!

    You can still haul trailers with a bit of work!

  4. Wide Crawler time!

    nachtstiel
    I was a bit frustrated with the hopper's standard suspension and axle wrapping, so I decided to try the crawler suspension. And whaddya know, it works much better!

  5. Wendover? More like Wideover!

    nachtstiel
    Today, I bring you an early, but functional widened suspension for the Wendover.

    You ever think to yourself, "Man, I really want to have a higher top speed, but I don't want to mess with my transmission."?

    Well, I have the product for you! With the exclusive widenend suspension for the Wendover, your thoughts have become reality! Simply attach these bad boys to your frame, slap on some tall tires, and BOOM. you got yourself a higher top speed without worrying about...
  6. Updates to configs

    nachtstiel
    With the update that added engine mounts, I noticed that some of the configs did not spawn with them.

    I figured I'd add some big tire configs as well. These will require the big tires mod.

    I also tweaked the suspension on some of the configs as well to reduce the bounciness.
  7. Scarab Time

    nachtstiel
    With permission from DrowsySam, I bring you the Scarab, but with 0.7-meter wider suspension!

    I figured that the only thing that could make the scarab better would be if its wheelbase was equal to its width.

  8. Introducing: Wide Roamer

    nachtstiel
    Hello again everybody! As per usual, the mods I make always have super easy fixes for their problems and easy ways to expand them that I completely gloss over and then ignore.

    So, today I bring you the Widened Roamer!

    Completely compatible with all previous widened setups for the D-series (aside from the prerunner, that is)!

    Features:
    • Widened front and rear suspension
    • 428 Cobra Jet engine and custom radiator
  9. Nuclear Axles 2: the Reckoning

    nachtstiel
    Welp. It looks like nuclear axles will continue to haunt me. This update fixes that again and since I was working on other things, it also includes some other WIP fixes.

    Changes:
    • (Hopefully) No more nuclear axle
    • Axle wrap just about fixed on the standard live axle for the D-series
    • Axle wrap almost fixed for the Hopper as well
    • Axle wrap mitigated on the pigeon
    • A radiator that doesn't melt when you use the 428 Cobra Jet in the D-series
  10. Pigeon is go!

    nachtstiel
    The pigeon has received the nachtstiel treatment!

    Look at that tire flex!

    Because of the way the pigeon is set up, I combined the bigger tires with the larger axles.

    Features:
    4 configs for easy to finds setups.
    Wider rear axle
    79-inch tall tires for the front and rear
    48-inch wide front tire
    A stronger driveshaft

    Why 79 inches? because an even 2 meters is nice to work with and 100 inches was too unstable.

    Standard wheels with the wide...
