And I'm back.

I hope everyone had a good holiday. And that's where my testing time went last week. Here's hoping I manage to get some time to do testing this weekend. At least I don't have anything in specific planned.

I just got off the phone with Boca. (yes, the bearing company.) What's the most common size .. lets say wheelbearing. I'm going to get a few samples from them for testing, and for "treatment" testing.

5x10x4 for my cars and most old school off road clutches ��

That's what I saw in my research too. Excellent. Here's hoping I get a decent variety of parts to test. :-)

Would be amazing to test a self aligning bearing like this:

I have a friend who works with SKF bearings, one normal ball bearing in 10x5x4 costs them almost 20$...

As we speak I have the G-forces and temperature sensors part done and to be more precise I will add a humidity sensor and I have a set of linear potentiometers to measure shock stroke I intend to add later. Oh and GPS off course.
Reading through this topic there are some neat thoughts....

Shock travel is not important to measure, you need to know how stable the chassis is, a G-force sensor on all corners of the chassis or a short distance range sensor (optical or ultrasonic) to measure the chassis height is better.

With an onroad car and an aluminium chassis you can even think of simple temp sensors on the front and rear to see if the chassis is touching the ground.

But your project looks a bit like mine
New project comes alive.

Indeed, I wanted to do like yours

Well Poo. Boca can't help. I guess I just get to order the bearings myself.

now.. to find time to get to the machine shop to build the test rig.

Things are going without schedule here, I'm happy to report that found something that should be done earlier than shock dyno and it's easier to implement.

Wow, time goes fast. Personal issues are keeping me away from testing so I've been reading as much as I can. The most important thing there could be right now is tire testing, as knowing how much load, temperature and alignment they like. For that I've been modifying my arduino telemetry system to take temperature, humidity and G force. Still have to do a spreadsheet to organize collected data.
