OMg that sound of the gypsy is truly amazing. What headers and free flow is she running on ?

It sure sounds powerful, well planted and a climber but the articulation seems so limited with those tyres?

having driven this monster and seeing it first hand performing,
its a beast,
articulation is to die for,
loss of power because of the tyre size, is nearly made up wit the custom intake and exhaust
the torque is enormous thanks to the gearing ratio
beautiful vehicle arjun sir,

Very tastefully done Gypsy, can someone clarify if the traction bars angle is correct or not?

Hi Spike,

I think this vehicle has Coil Springs with Radius Arms.

Regards,

Arka

Hi Arka, quite possible, but if it has a propeller shaft with slip (sliding) joint the axle must still traverse an arc, isn't it? Leave aside the vertical displacements from the tire being transferred through the coil springs and radius arms? What do you say?

Hi Spike,

The Axle will travel the arc determined by the Radius Arm, the Prop-Shaft thereby had to have a provision to slip.

The Radius Arm is attached to the Axle housing determining the Pinion Angle.

Arka

The gypsy (I think) is running a bolt on kit available abroad. But it does look awesome. No questions about it.

Had seen it on a open stretch, with another Gypsy in Gurgaon a few weeks back. It looks & sounds awesome.


Cheers

Those ramp-break-over-angle-reducing-things are not traction bars.

It is not bolt on. everything was fabricated in house by performance.

Definitely It's drool worthy. I feel with the coil springs on all four wheels, the need for sway bar is nullified. He has already arrested the differential travel by putting the red support rods.

He will have more articulation with sway bar gone.

Are they radius arms then? I have never seen such long radius arms.
