JI’m talking with a local machine shop to see what they can do in that regard, and also about the possibility of just manufacturing an entirely new subframe to replace Oliver’s.
That is a grand project, and the results could be astonishing, but I would not like to be the beta tester. What sort of suspension design are you considering? Please keep us all informed.
There are some great trailer suspension systems in Australia, I don’t know a lot about all the variations, but I do know that if you go with a fully independent A-Arm type tandem design, you will have to grossly upsize the tires in load capacity since there is no load equalization and you will overload a tire in many situations.
It would be very cool to have a foot of well controlled wheel travel…… have you seen this Adrenaline trailer “test”? It is insane.
