    Small bridge diorama

    Hey, I want to convert my car to ride 3 wheel motion, Im thinkin Air Bag Suspension! U think this is possible, this kinda helps the problem of mounting servos cos i can replace my springs/dampers with air rams, If i can do think i could do this, where can get these parts (air rams and stuff)

    Otherwise i think im gonna go with Servos like that other guy is doing.
    Anybody know where i can get cheap servos that will ship to the UK?
    Also, I Want to know where i could find a cool lowrider shell (maybe a Chevy Impala or Some sort of Caddy)

    Thanks In Advance.

    well small enough air rams are gonna be hard to come by so I dunno about them. As for a cool lowrider body Parma has some old stly-like Impala's!

    Yeah they would work, but i problably couldnt uses then via the remote control. I wanna be able to use them without having to keep pumping the air chamber up that u get with those rams.

    ok but where are you gonna mount all of this, I think it would be kind og hard to do, especialy if you wanted to use a body on it.

    true and you would need servos to switch them but it would move much quiker than servos and posibly be able to bounce. servos with some sort of cantilever would be good as the cant's wou;d exelerate the movment of the standard servo.
