    Re: Land Cruiser 200 Tire Size

    285/70/R17's fit with well with no rubbing and only a slight drop in performance.

    The noise from the muds is very noticeable though, brace yourself.

    The Swiss couple left in Feb 2019. They gave Syncro to Anna. I don’t think you ever own the land, just the infrastructure really.

    This is very over-simplified. Stacked springs have completely different properties to a diamond shape. The stacked springs start interacting together in friction and the increased composite depth has...

    I wrote this earlier today and agree with your philosophy about longer springs being problematic:

  11. Re: Independent trailer suspension DIY question

    In terms of toppling over, do you believe that coils having a travel of say 200mm is any different to leaf springs with travel of say 50mm?

    Re: Trailer design - where are the clever guys

    Agreed but something is not correct. There should not be that much horizontal play. The bolts are supposed to work in shear alone, not bending and shear as is the case here.

    Re: Trailer design - where are the clever guys

    I could be misinterpreting your design but it looks like you are missing some parts. Also the front set of leaf spring looks wrong, or at least the wrong way around.

    Re: Metalian Basic Prototype trailer

    Personally I would find a bottom tray very useful.

    A top tray/shelf also always useful to carry firewood, gas bottles or whatever odds and ends.

    Re: leaf spring mounting reinforcement

    Agreed. Or across compressive stress lines as is the case here. A sudden change in cross sectional area leads to high concentrations of stress and inevitably is where fatigue rears its ugly head.

    Correct, they are. You are going to have to stick to the '12v' panels. They go up to around 155w.

    Re: Please help pick my solar panels..

    Ian,hi, 120W is a toy. Rather go Kobus' route. The panel weighs 20-22kg, hardly a premium.
    Make the insulation work but don't compromise on W's.
