'Nuther milestone. Suspension fully installed and working sweet. Still some experimenting with final drive and assembling tracks.

Been working on other stuff, but did print the nearly 200 track links and laboriously made them.

Sure is looking nice. Your prints are excellent quality. Hope those resin links hold up! They are beautiful.

Thanks guys! My hands are killin me - the link pins are tight and take some pushing and twisting to get them in. (just stabbed a pin 1/2 way through my thumb!) The differential works but the breakaway torque is higher than I like. I'll order a different one and see if it "differentials" easier. Need to get off my duff and do the superstructure, but that's the easy part and I like the hard part lol. Given I won't be driving on rough pavement for hundreds of hours, I think it will hold up ok. I test printed the links with the FDM printer, and surprisingly they came out pretty good too, so I can always run FDM links if I need to.

What you need is a small brass hammer to gently tap those pins home.

Been working on some other stuff, but making progress on design of the superstructure of late.

Looking really rather smart. Very nice work
Be interesting to see how you get on with the fdm links

Thanks. I've run the track around the house, and I think the SLA track will be fine- the suspension and tracks work better than I expected; quite smooth. I also got a different differential with much lower break-away torque which should make my scale steering work properly. Onward and upward!
