@KustoM and I would like to invite those who want to learn about tank building to join us this Sunday night on the Garry's Mod server. We'll be running through chassis and suspension construction and show you how to get it all moving with ACF. Time TBD.

Would also be awesome if we could get some experienced guys to lend a hand helping people as we go.

@Mini_Jebus A potato can run Gmod. @Avarice yes, I was probably going to do some fancy suspension to make it worth the effort to teach.

Showing someone how to axis some wheels on a plate is pretty pointless.

Cool thought it might have been just the good old weight based suspension
Small 5a9e0aa09f2eaba5606b1e1b04c5254e
Nah, maybe that will be covered as a side note but I figured we'd go all out.

Dampening was a major missing part from the old way, tanks used to rock a little if you stopped suddenly and actual hydraulic suspension with variable height and dampening would be good. The next thing I would like to see with suspension is the ability to adjust height without changing the wheelbase which happens alot on my truck because of the pivot point on the chassis.

Part of the problem there is that you have a fixed length bar (ropes) which your wheels are attached to. You can adjust it to keep the same height above ground with added load but if you want to literally increase clearance your track will be reduced the higher you go. Not really sure you can do anything about that.

I may have just thought of something to do just that actually. I'll test some stuff out tonight
