NEW frontaxle for the R/C JD 7920..... Pics inside....


Recommended Posts

Ok so here is my new project.

I thought that the radio controlled John Deere 7920 (1/16) tractor could need a smaller turning radius.

Originally the frontaxle from ERTL is made to a very narrow frontwheel setup to follow the line of the inner rear duals.

So I desided to make a new axle, made for the wider setup.

So why not go green all the way.  :D

I am about to convert the existing frontaxle from the ERTL tractor to a wide setup using John Deere's principles for the turning.

Everybody knows that when a Deere turns it tilts the wheels.

My axle has 5 degr. camber angle inward and 12 degr. caster angle backwards.

The axles at the ends looks bend, they are not, it's the light...  :wink:

Next up is to make the turningparts and hubs and to mount the servo...
