Hello, I started a project with a friend of mine to design and build a "street buggy", basically, it's a dune buggy meant to be driven on tarmac instead. So far, we've come up with diagrams of the chassis and other specialized components with approximated measurements. This buggy that we've deemed the "Raptor Mk.1" is to be a rear engine, rear wheel drive, single seat capacity vehicle. On our diagrams, we predicted that it should be about 2.7432m in length. However, more that 75% of the vehicle's weight will be in the back, so we need to figure out how to balance the weight. Simply storing the fuel tank in the front wont be enough. After brainstorming for a few days, I finally came up with an idea: a shift-able weight mounted on the front. It was a breakthrough for this project, but it's only a theorized component, one that I will now share it's details with in order to get a consult on it's possibility: (I know the name is bland and it doesn't roll off the tongue, i'm still working on it) It's called an "Inertia Slide", a rectangular piece of metal that is suspended on two bearing houses bolted onto the chassis. Here's what I wrote down above the design of this Inertia Slide: "In theory, the inertia slider is a component mounted on a vehicle's chassis that helps distribute weight evenly when accelerating and decelerating. When the vehicle is accelerating, the weight is pull backward, applying weight to the middle of the body for stability; and when the vehicle is decelerating, the weight is pushed forward to the front of the body, applying more weight on the front wheels, improving it's handling and ability to steer." In my Power Mechanics class, we learned about bearings that protect the crankshaft and camshaft from inertia, that's how I came up with this idea: instead of opposing the force of inertia, why not utilize it? Anyways, now for the specifications: Weight (part) LxWxH = 121cmx115cmx8cm, weight = 70kg, components = seal plate, arm, weight plate ; Wearing Rail (Housing): LxWxH = 1.82.88cmx?(to be determined)x10cm, weight = undetermined, components = impact absorber, lock plate, ball OR cylindrical roller bearing, oil seal, shell. All this may be hard to envision, all i have are crude sketches, unfortunately. I have to real skills with 3D modeling programs. But, I intend the mount this part on the front of the chassis with it's angle being biased to the the front so the it naturally falls forward. I'm also hoping to instill a frictional resistance on this part so that it requires approximately 0.8 lateral G's in order to move at all. Keep in note that I have no expert training in this field at the moment, this is simply a project to get a first hand feel and understanding. Once again, this is a theorized part and all measurements are approximation to be adjusted accordingly. Can anyone help me out with this?
