Unique design: Active suspension for the 1963 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 with remote control

The passion for cars can create different forms, as the story of an American who built an active suspension for a remote car proves. This project is based on an Arduino computer that controls the movements of the Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 body in 1963 . The chassis is a radio-controlled drift car, while the body and many components were printed on a 3D printer.

The goal of the project was to create a suspension system that realistically imitated the body movements characteristic of an American car of the 60s. It took the American almost a year to renew and improve this suspension system. As you can see in the video below, the car tilts realistically with each change in direction, as well as when accelerating and braking.
To achieve this, he used an Arduino computer and signals generated by the accelerometer to decide on which wheel and how to change the ground clearance (via servomotors) to mimic the behavior of the 1963 Oldsmobile. For even more realism, the exhaust pipes are illuminated to simulate that they "throw a flame" when the throttle is released, there is also a noise generator that simulates engine noise quite well, for extremely realism.

The Arduino computer performs all calculations and adjustments in real time, so the car almost does not need a spring suspension and shock absorbers. In the case of the final model, they were still subsequently mounted on the rear axle, but the goal was to improve the drift performance.http://fiatforum.lv/http://fiatforum.lv/
