This self-leveling vehicle is the master flex of all off-road vehicles. Chainlink Extreme 4×4 with Articulated Suspension looks to be straight from a transformers movie. This thing is impressive as hell.
This over-the-top custom 4×4 has an incredibly articulate suspension, which allows it to crawl and drive over just about any terrain, including wildly irregular surfaces.
Nearly every 4-wheel drive measures their axle articulation in inches – maybe a few feet here and there. How about seven feet of axle articulation up OR down? Crazy? Insane? Are we lying? Nope – it’s true, and it’s real.
Cameron Carlson creation moves by taking power from 5.0 Mustang H.O. Cobra engine through a C4 transmission and then into a Dana 20 transfer case that has been cut in half for gear reduction out of the rear output only. Then a 6-inch driveline is hooked to an upside-down nodular-iron Ford 9-inch axles with 5.43 gears, 31 spline Summers Brothers shafts, and an ARB 9-inch has short shafts that run to two side-by-side 24-tooth chain sprockets turn one chain going to the front and one to the back along swing arms that pivot on a single hinge point that is aligned with the sprocket and the 9-inch center.
Huh, this is hard enough to write – imagine how hard is to build it.
My hats off to Cameron and his “CHAINLINK”.
Watching this thing in action is a sight to behold. It’s spectacular.
