Now lets have a break from the roadbook and go back to the NavTower...

Today I went and got the parts from the Lasercutting supplier... They are ready to go to the sheet bending facility and then maybe anodising ...




Girlfriend almost had me killed when she saw these parts on the table but anyways...



Here you can see the mark lines for the bending machine... I just hope the sheet benders do not mark these things... They are really beautifull. It is 50 series aluminium but it is so smooth, really rare to find here a good supplier...



The pivoting mechanism...




We had some troubles with the text so what was not done will either be an addon stencil or if I anodise the parts it will be engraved (basically remove the anodising so you can see white text on the black anodised part... )



The loT and below are the advmonster light supports. I made some new ones out of SS




And here is the Tamiya I was talking about ...



I will do a preliminary test on the Navtower even though it is not bended at least I could check if the height is right ...

gOOdnighT to all of you people,

-o0-

I got hold of a F2R roadbook and designed my own basically copying what they had done. I'd say they are pretty simple really and spare parts for it would be pretty easy to carry. They run with a couple of one way clutches which are easy enough to slip on and off.

My query is how different are the rolls? Would a roll that was used to the oz safari and then dakar and all the other events be that similar? Or is there in reality a specific standard that is used?

This thread is brilliant as it has so many people with ideas and the will to design and try stuff

In regards to the drive axles it'd be possible to design in Technic lego wouldn't it? The pulley knobs



can be glued onto the axles eg.



Run the spring as you say and then attach a pulley;



The motor can have to one way clutch pulleys on it therefore providing the drive.

The cartridge drive axles can intermesh with the lego axles and theres your drive, and to be honest they may be able to be made from lego parts as well.

Heres a motor that could be used depending on size requirements although rpm would be the limiting factor.



Since one of the ideas was to make it possible to fix nearly anywhere lego is pretty common all over the world. And if people are going to build this most of us would I figure have used lego in the past.

And some of use may still use it now

Fairnouf. Though through this thread there has been some designs that took a different route, maybe the motor wouldn't work but the drive system may be an idea.

Also as per the ideas of using hdpe and the like it may be an easy way to design things just for trial, finding alloy/teflon rod etc isn't that easy sometimes.

Following Dimitri's roadbook endeavours closely now, I agree with Seth that I'd rather pack a roadbook packed onto just a roller in my pack instead of a whole loaded cassette

Regardless, this thread should be awarded a medal

Oh, and a wee update on my post a few months back regarding the leather Leatherman pouch zip-tied to the fork tube: don't do it

After repeated power washings, the leather started to deteriorate and I was lucky enough to see my $120 flapping off the forks in the special of day 3 in Serres ...the zip ties had cut through the leather belt hoop. That said, I do believe that if I can source a nylon/cordura pouch it will be a non-issue

The Lego idea is brilliant, total out of the box thinking! You never know what won't work until you try it

My Cousin and I made it as far as 1/8 scale electric buggies and then bought dirt bikes a couple years ago. The R/C stuff sits on the shelf now

One more roadbook test shot from Unadilla.....



The Nav tower held up very well, I wish I could say the same for the Cycra hand guards

When I had lego it did spend a lot of time in dirt/mud/sand etc so the stuff has been tested to some degree. Probably by us all when we were wipper snappers
