just use some really cheap square tube, light and cheap. otherwise you can build one out of wood. make sure you have a fire extinguisher handy and don't leave it inside after you've welded or used a grinder on it.  ;)

prob even use gas pipe if you have a source on the cheap.

UTV General Discussion / Chassis table.
« Last post by big dave on Today at 02:31:13 PM »
I have been dreaming for a few years about building a tube Chassis Baja. what is everyone doing for a chassis table????????  I would like to keep it simple. oversize 2 care shop. I  will  only use it one time.  found this sand rail for parts. then the body off my old 65 baja that I built around 1995 . Sale the sand rail frame and build new Chassis with a D@Sracing front end. keeping it 091 bus and my old 2275 turbo injected motor

i understand your thought process of gaining 3* here and move it there. the way the chain adjusts you will always have some misalignent there. if the a arms truly stroke straight up and down and no rake at the cradle then that 3* offset is due to  wheel base with out changing the chassis imo. big question is how much axle plunge do you currently have? 2nd... how much angle are your running now? how long are your axles? what is the track width with paddles on?  i ask these questions as i run non plunge 930 cv's. with the turbo busa i had , i had them limited at 35* withy straps. now on my current i have them limited at 30* and am using the same cvs from before which are going on 5 years old.

bypass shocks would/are fantastic.  if the lower arms were wider at the frame you wouldnt need that link bar. it def seems to work.


i want to say that when designing an a arm rear end that everything does need to pivot at the same points. so that 3* offeset really shouldnt be there. must be a reason for it. however, straightening those lines wont gain you a lot of wheel travel imo. longer axles and higher angle cvs would.

All right,
After looking at the rear of my car, I think there can be some improvements.  I really like the way the car handles with the a arms.  However looking at the car from a plan view (above) the center spool center-line and the micro-stub center line are on 2 different planes.  Roughly 2".  Correct me if i'm wrong, but I believe I can get more travel if those 2 center lines (spool and stub) were in line?  Say its 3* forward and i center things up, would you agree that may be more down travel as far as the CV angles go?
Below is the plan view.
 

By thought is to build new arms and a trailing link if you will to center things up.  ALSO, add 2" to each side.  My other idea is to keep the shock in it's position and add a bypass.  I think I can squeeze another 3" out if it, possibly 1" more if I step up to a 30" tire and the track width would be around 80"

Thoughts?

Definitely some solid info on the clutch set up.  I will have to do some digging on the clutch mod and what it does.  There will be some launches as Iv'e got some RZR's out there at the dunes I want to embarrass.  LOL

I actually had a wild hair in my ass to re configure the rear suspension slightly to get more travel and the addition of bypasses.  I'll get into that tomorrow after some head scratching.

slave support.....https://store.schnitzracing.com/schnitz-clutch-slave-support-bracket-suzuki-gsx1300r-hayabusa-99-07/


i do agree with fabr , heavier springs and stock steels and friction with heavier springs but your choice ( i went aftermarket clutch kit but didn't know)......https://store.schnitzracing.com/ape-clutch-spring-kit-suzuki-gsx1300r-hayabusa-99-07/


and i put one of these in, made a diff imo and would do it again......https://store.schnitzracing.com/brocks-clutch-mod-suzuki-gsx1300r-hayabusa-99-18/

Stock frictions with stock steels and heavy duty springs are the best,IMO.   New owner bought busa and promptly crashed it right after entering freeway. Dude had no idea how powerful they are and it bit him in the ass. I heard it went down at over 140.

Holy crap!  3 miles!?  Must have fallen off a transport trailer.

Any suggestions on clutches for the Hayabusa?  I do have to do some research on them for sure to see what works and what doesn't.  Especially when it's off road, not on the streets.
