New Diff?

After hearing of this thing being out there, how long do you think before someone makes one of these for an off-road swingaxle transmission? It looks like it would completely eliminate axle issues. What type of articulation do you think these would be able to achieve? At $2000 it would add to the already outrageous trans prices. What are other people thoughts?

the way the rules are written for SCORE, it doesnt seem to be in violation of them. It would just violate your wallet.

But by going to a 930 CV rather than the paddles and fulcums, travel will be increased. Tubes have been modified before, but the fulcrum axle is what stops more travel. This eliminates that issue.

Yes it would. Axles that twist! I think the issues with the spool aren't as bad with the swing as they are with the IRS set-up, but costs for trans with this set-up would surpass a built bus I think. When do you simply say switch to type 1 IRS like the 11s run?

cool,but these cars all ready have allot of camber ,more travel would not be a good thing.but at the same travel they have now it would be cool to see how they would work.
