Truck Related Cradle Positioning


Well-Known Member
As most know, I build minature versions of the real monster trucks. I am currently working on a full blown 4x4 version with 4 wheel steering, designed for younger generation excitement. I wanted the over all length to be 8 feet, my question is, how do I determine where the center cradle should go? I would like all the 4 links to be the same lentgh, but for some reason I can't get them, the front is longer than the rear. Any help?

Hate to rain on your parade but that as already been done. Steve Combs of Knight Stalker Shocks has built 3 or 4 of then for people. So you may call him for questions and parts.

Why don't you just build your 4-links all the same length you want them and put the cradle where they end up?

If you have the axles, know the wheelbase, and you know the 4-link length you want, I guess I'm missing what exactly the issue is. Are you using a pre-designed chassis maybe?
