A simple approach to an adjustable front suspension for a locost sevenesque roadster .

Go-kart front suspension design
Brief description of our go-kart project's front suspension design. This has been designed and fabricated from scratch with only the rose-joints as a bought component.
Material is mostly 20mm RHS with the kingpin and stub axle turned from a solid steel 25mm round bar. Bushes are Delrin over a steel crush tube. The aluminium wheelhub is a special design which I'll cover in another video.
Geometry is conventional double-wishbone with A-frame upper and straight lower arms. KPI is 14° with 10° castor. Camber is adjustable but will probably run at 0°. Designed for a 12" (300mm) x 2.5" (63mm) alloy scooter wheel.
1965 Shelby 427 Competition Cobra
One of just a handful of authentic competition Cobras, CSX 3006 was delivered new to an American and raced briefly in the U.S. before being exported to the U.K. and participating in several European races, including Goodwood, Zeltweg (Austria) and Brands Hatch in 1966, where co-drivers David Piper and Bob Bondurant won the Ilford 500. Offered from a prominent private collection, it has been fully restored to its 1966 Brands Hatch race specification and will be available at the upcoming Automobiles of London auction on October 28th in London, England.
