Re: M41 spring test video [TANKS]
Thu, 12 Oct 2006 22:32:43 +1000
Nice day in Melbourne today, thought it was time for a test drive so placed
some square wooden posts down and drove over them to see how the springs
Its not really finished and the batteries and stuff where not secured at all
so had to behave a bit but still.
Running over the posts looks a bit ugly but it was just for a test to shock
it a bit, next video will be much better.
Feeling that there is too much tension in the springs, doubt there even
hitting the arm bumpers.
Any comments welcome regarding how a tank would bounce, guessing it needs
more dampening but will do some more tests soon, that is not its final speed
either and also have to think about the weight of the turret.
And yes I should have cut the grass.
