Very cool to see it going. Well done on the build success so far. Nice bit of acceleration in the garage.

What sort of gearbox/transfer box set up are you running and diff ratios?

:mrgreen:

Keep on posting the build... :D

Windsock, the transmission is stock unimog.
Diff gear ratio 3.545:1
Hub reduction gear ratio 2.133:1
Total ratio 7.56:1

With 1st crawler 46.01:1 = total ratio 347.84:1
1.64 mph @4800rpm.
With top gear 1:1= total ratio 7.56:1
75.5mph @4800rpm

Not that I'd want to drive it at 75mph, the brakes are a very basic single circuit with drums all round and no booster :shock:

Very nice. Well done. I especially like the bumper flying out of the mog coming up the steps!

Anyway, the description says "LD28T 2". Does this mean you've twin turbo'd it? From the video it looks like you've got a splitter on the intake which seems to support this theory.

If so, VERY well done! Keep us updated.

Cheers,
LWW

Sounds a great project. For want of a build thread I am sorry for threadjack.

Look at weight minimisation every step of the way. What sort of gearbox transferbox set up are you going with?

Discovery diffs or toyota/nissan? Loads of info about different diffs and axle set ups on pirate4x4.com and AULRO.com. Just be careful if you chose to post any questions in the former. They're a brutal bunch but technically the best collection of expertise ever assembled online when it comes to 4x4s.

Keep us posted.

Cheers,

Phil
