SPIED!! TD2 "Monster Truck" Suspension Mod!!

Recommended Posts

Hi Jack (or any other spy)

I’m really surprised there seems to be no interest in this thread?

The ‘professional’ looking quality of the E-Ring molding and the matching yellow ‘super soft’ color leads me to believe that this is a soon to be released creation from Fin and Bob.

A few questions to the creator (Fin/Bob?)

1. Is the purpose of this stacking E-Ring simply more vibration absorption?

2. Why stack two disk directly to the board? Wouldn’t it make more sense to offer a thicker E-Ring (with the tabs for vibration absorption) in combination with a single thicker center disk?

The spied photo does not show any slotted teeth on the center disk, so I will assume that the center disk and the additional disk are stacked.

3. Does a thicker E-Ring automatically result in more ‘squish’ or movement as D-Sub suggested?

Before the release of the TD2 Bob explained to me that the movement of the new Bombers was as follows:

‘The Elastomer Ring (No matter which durometer) under full compression to one side, only deflects .23 degrees from center. (.46 degrees inclusive.)’

4. Would a thicker (single) center disk, made of a composite material, reduce the potential wear between the aluminum cant disk and a composite center disk; when the really thick E-Ring is used? This is assuming a bit more movement and vibration absorbtion were either the goal or the result of this modification.)

Thanks is advance


PS - I can’t wait until the legal issues are resolved, I’m keen to see the new products!

Looking forward to the production models. Great application for wider boards like the 4wd---more leverage to help rail a 200mm+ wide board on edge. The squishyness, if any, might also be nice in softer, all mountain, conditions.

Was thinking the same thing - I would definitley get some for my Axis and my 4807.
