MPS. Rear axle V: Torsion-beam

Following idea by Zachary Cross

Without drive (code: R.D)

- R.D.1


Standard: Yes
Max shock adsorvers allowed: 1, it can use hard spings, but works better with soft springs.

Advanced suspension geometry (Camber angle): No

MPS. Rear axle IV: Live axle with leaf spring

Following the idea by legomuppet9.

With drive (code F.CD)

- R.CD.2

Standard: No, it need a big hole in the chassis for the drive shaft.
Max shock adsorvers allowed: None, supported by leaf spring under the axle
Advanced suspension geometry (Camber angle): No

New MPS elements

About a year ago I introduced the Modular Platform System(MPS) to help people to built its own supercars with advanced suspensions system easily.

You can find all published information about it here: MPS


Now, 13 months after the last update of it, I want to add some new elements to the MPS(axles and frames)

In this moment is when I need your opinion and ideas for new MPS elements.

Peterbilt 379 & CAT C15


Since I was a child I has been a fan of big trucks, and specially of American style trucks(in Spain is strange to see trucks with long noise).

For this MOC I have chosen one of the most charismatic and representative models of these trucks: a Peterbilt 379.

MPS. Rear axles II: Live axle

With drive (code F.CD)

- R.CD.1


Standard: No, it need a big hole in the chassis for the drive shaft.
Max shock adsorvers allowed: 3
Advanced suspension geometry (Camber angle): No

Notes: The green liftarm on the axle means that the axle need a support to keep the structure enough strong, but you can put this support anywhere you want in the top.

Modular Platform System (MPS)

Probably the most popular vehicles to build MOCs are the Supercars.
We all love cars and the more fast and sports better, but if someone wants to make a Technic Supercar in big size and some complexity (scale 1/10 is the most used) and you don't have a good knowledge of the techniques, build it can be very complicated and end up as hopeless.


This system was created with the idea of ​​helping all those people who want to make a supercar at approx. scale 1/10 and still not have enough knowledge to start, or want to make a car with more advanced specs as Ackerman steering, camber angle and do not know how to do it.
