Ultimate Princess Jeep Build 4-Link Suspension and Steering Part 3


[Music] today’s the first day of episode 3 of Cinderella a lots gonna happen in this episode Cinderella’s gonna get a lot more Cindy yeah we’re gonna go from sort of swing arms set up to a full four-link rear suspension so it’s got flex the other main thing is gonna work on is the steering system because right now we don’t have any steering too long and stiffening up the front suspension like it’s all roughed in like the way it’s gonna go but it’s all just flimsy and tacked in place so we’ve got to make more brackets and weld stuff together and make that all so it can hold waitin and rallying [Music] things are looking for linky now yes it’s kind of up he’s so dang cool so the upper part of the four link will look like this essentially if these had more swing I can just do a straight arm like that but a lot of the bend it so it goes forward a little bit and then over and then they’ll both meet this is just a little stub of pipe here well not Jam into that I just took the bearing block that we got from BMI and just drilled two holes in it and bolted the heim joints on there [Music] hey guys we’re really excited to be working with the Dollar Shave Club on this project because they’re helping us make this princess Jeep a reality and helping us stay fresh Dollar Shave Club is a subscription service that has everything you need to look feel and smell your best they have shower products oral care products hair and skin products and of course shaving products not only do they ship them straight to your house but the more products you sign up for the more you save it’s called their handsome discount and also they have a special starter pack right now for five dollars they have three starter sets the shave starter set comes with the executive razor and a three ounce tube of their dr. Carver’s shave butter the oral care starter set comes with their weighty toothbrush and a trial sized version of their toothpaste the shower starter set comes with three trial size versions of their body cleanser face cleanser and shampoo and again we’re super excited for the Dollar Shave Club support on this video they’re helping us build the princess Jeep so let’s get back to building it yeah we’ve got four lengths now there’s so many versions of I don’t know what this one’s called I looked at pictures on the internet and said and thought I want to build it like that so that’s that’s the extent of my research on four-link looking at pictures on the internet I think it’s time to unbolt one of these shocks real quick and see how it works see how it flexes all right the springs are off time for a flex test so you know what the problem is huh these can flex independently I was I was designing this off of a regular axle mm-hmm where in these like where it bolts on the axle it’s one solid housing all the way across mmm these are two separate bearings good job even good job good job okay all right here’s the plan so I’m gonna take this piece of pipe and essentially welded like that to both of these so they can’t pivot independently of each other and to do that I’ll mount it in on the inside kind of like this and have it Bend up there just one bend in the middle so it can clear the chain on whatever sprocket we put there and then I’ll just welded on there and I think I’ll actually put one underneath down here and test to see if that’s gonna work and if it does I may put in a second one a pop because it may need more than just the one because that’s a lot of twists like the force on it is this weird twisting motion so two of them would make it way way stronger and it protect the chain to broadband bottom that way if the chit you know this with this one here will protect your ass from the chain [Music] [Music] chin guard / axial stiffener whatever you want to call it more importantly now it flexes the way it should yes there’s no no side-to-side motion at all now the only thing is this moves about quite a bit further back I think this pivot would have to be in like the middle because it’s moving on this yeah this pivot is the it’s not equalized between the two [Music] [Music] it’s the beginning of day 2 we got some new parts who got change some sprockets some well I got some bearings for the jack shaft bearing holders nuts and bolts a lots going down today yeah this is the first time we’ve had the body off since yeah a while and man it looks absolutely ridiculous yeah we’re gonna have to do a rally session with just the tube frame oh it just looks so cool [Music] I might change my mind later but for now I’m thinking of using this for the steering column and I made a very simple pushing here for it to pivot on [Music] fake up come up with solution which is I have this steering you joint assembly from I have no idea what some car that I worked on so I can use that to change the angle of the steering column and I can use a thinner column here that can go in between the engine and that frame member and then have the steering arm go down from it like that so then it’ll then it’ll work the right direction [Music] it looks so real right now man it has a lot of suspicion obviously the fronts not stiff enough yeah stiffen it up yeah you might as well the rear is actually fairly stiff yeah we got Ethan on the top of the hill and Cinderella it’s our first rule test we’re not totally sure what will happen but we’re just hoping we don’t break anything because that would be reverse progress [Music] all right front flex test number one Wow that’s a girl okay a lot of flex that like scale that’s insane because a lot of cars like that Beemer there would not he wouldn’t flex that much and it’s like you know should sit in it and see what happens oh not much that’s perfect look at that [Music] this thing’s unstoppable yeah we need a bigger rock [Music] that’s pretty impressive though like scale that’s enormous but even like real life like my man if you put it on this one in that one it was probably the almost maxed out on flex yeah and it’s got a lot of travel it looks so cool [Music] [Music] alright guys that’s it for this one next week we’re going to stiffen the suspension put some new shocks in there we’re gonna get chained all the way to the rear axle and get as far as possible this week and your guys’s support on the channel so far has been absolutely insane the comments we get how long you guys stick around people that are from the original Barbie car video all the way to now just loving everything supporting us in the website I mean it’s absolutely overwhelming more than we could have ever hoped for and with these sponsored videos it’s really helping us take our builds to the next level like we have ideas they’re gonna break the Internet guys like thanks for being along for this ride it’s been amazing and next Friday is gonna be the next episode we’re gonna try to release a new episode updating you on our progress every Friday I’m basically editing these things Friday morning and post him Friday afternoon thanks guys
