2nd attempt on making a beddancer, gona sorta keep it a secret so this is all you get until i finish it, hehe im so evil. i also tryed out a new ubar system, inspired be jevries's front lift on his r/c lowrider models. chassis made completely out of box styrene and alluminum (couldnt find brass)






this is the new u-bar system used. also, big up to ScratchBuilderV for the rear lift and box styrene idea.





enjoy the pictures.

Looks good homie! What I wonder is, I once tried the way you did the backlift on both sides but in my case it didn't dance smooth because there was too much friction. How do they slide?
Maybe Scratchbuilder can tell since he has the finished product. ;)
yo J, they slide realy well, they will slide even better when i install the scissor lift and get some more wieght in the back, but yeah, friction is a problem, and i had to be carefull wheen glueing stuff on them, so i didnt glue the axel to the slider. but i think its great, mianly because i cant solder worth shit, so theat rear axel would have been hard to make.

Nice to see someone ells is trying the Square Cylinder Setup. :thumbsup:
It's true they do need a bit of weight. For my Doge truck I had to change the front set-up to a U bar system because of the lack of weight in the front. But the square cylinder set up works very well in the back of the truck. Also putting a small amount of oil, helps the set up work better.

Here's what I did to my square cylinder set-up to maxamize the travel.

Cut slits on the two sides of the larger square tube.

Side to side works very well. And I do like jervries idea of adding an axle so the tires stay flat on the ground.
