Re: theTRUTH

Hey Dave,

She sounded great this year ... just watched some video of you taking off.

Yeah, wouldn't do it without a backup plan for sure. Will probably have multiple cameras and screens to boot...

Cheers!

Re: theTRUTH

Richard, these look like the ones: https://au.rs-online.com/web/p/pneumatic-roundline-cylinders/1214743/ And something like this for a valve? https://au.rs-online.com/web/p/pneumatic-solenoid-pilot-operated-control-valves/1215879/ although these seem to be 24v ... maybe they just run slower at 12v? ...

Re: theTRUTH

Hi RGV,

Yes, those are the ones!

So lightweight in comparison to what I was proposing. Very cool.

Are you thinking about changing it up on the RGV next year? APS/F 250?

Cheers!

Re: theTRUTH

Hey Stayt'ie, I think its just that the camera is mounted off to the side.

Totally agree, there would be bugger all input via body movement. And pretty claustrophobic in there.

I'd love to have a go though!

Cheers

Re: theTRUTH

Hi Richard, Pneumatic, did you say they were festo ones? Very keen to see your setup. Having them retract forward is a great way to make them strong without putting a lot of load into the cylinder mechanism themselves (was one of my concerns). Are you using a disposable cylinder for the air or do yo...

Re: theTRUTH

Thanks Stayt'ie, That's all I needed ... check out this awesome video: https://youtu.be/_I4Yr2N6zss Yes, it is a crash video ... but at 240mph! And they had records at 210mph ... The 240mph video says it's a sub 500cc but they ran a CBR600 in it as well. Must have been pretty slippery. I also note h...

Re: theTRUTH

Hey Harky,

That was almost a Haiku ... nice.

With a bit of technology mine will also be like laying in bed, but on my front; looking down through a hole like on a massage table!

Looking forward to seeing your trainer wheels.

Fun times!

Cheers!

Re: theTRUTH

Hi guys, Staty'ie, do you have any web links to those guys? Keen to see their setup ... I've tried a mirror and left and right is as expected but upside down is a little disconcerting. I like mirrors for their failsafe simplicity though. Webmaster, yeah, technology has come forwards in leaps and bou...

Re: theTRUTH

Hi All, Two questions ... especially for Graham; Graham, are you out there? I'm thinking fixed skids wouldn't be a bad option (simple and strong and definitely in position), I only need them when slowing down to a stop (but they take into account the high mounting point suggested by Stayt'ie just in...

Re: FEET FORWARD AG1350

Hey Harky, Looks great! Took a while for me to figure out where the lugs were mounted ... but finally recognized the Hayabusa fins down the back of the frame there. Swingarm looks really nice. Very keen to see how you mount the shock and how/if you'll brace back to the lower frame rails; when I chat...

Re: FEET FORWARD AG1350

The hub center stuff only showed up when I hit submit ... looking great. Not sure why that big hammer is in the background though! Any pics of the swingarm?

Re: theTRUTH

Hey Stayt'ie, I'll keep that in mind for version 2 ... funny how something simple sounding (like some skids) presents so many issues to overcome. I've spent ages thinking about it already and still aren't anywhere near happy with the solution. Keep going aye! Yeah, good reasons to avoid aero for the...

Re: theTRUTH

Harky, that ones straight from the internet ... so I'll have to pass on the complement to its original author. Where are you up to with yours? A build thread perhaps? Stayt'ie, yeah a liner may as well be a car for all the infrastructure it needs. Partially Streamlined is almost a streamliner if you...
