Re: Project: Think Beyond Limits - Actros 4x4x4

The tires are actually even taller. These are 445/95R25 so approx 1480mm tall. The 16.00R20 tyres are 1350mm tall. I agree that the limiters need to be removed first before I take it for a test ride. I will play with the tyre pressure too. These limiters are not present in the front, however, yet th...

Re: Project: Think Beyond Limits - Actros 4x4x4

I will take some pics of this part. Because this was an airport sweeper, the setup you circled in red is designed to limit the wheel movement in the up and down direction. On the runway all the attachments would be in more or less set position. The limited wheel movement would protect them should th...

All, few small updates: At this time things are moving very slow.

In the meantime, however, I have a question to those amongst us familia...

Re: Allison Automatik - Erfahrungen ?

If I am not mistaken, the shift points could be "tuned" to a certain degree. From what I have been able to find out, one would need to get in touch with a competent Allison Trasmission dealer/service shop and discuss it. I am not certain about the costs, though.

Little update. Upgrading to the strongest OM501 engine version (456hp) will not be easy.

Re: Project: Think Beyond Limits - Actros 4x4x4

So I had a chance to measure angles on my 4x4x4 truck, as it stands right now.

Here they are:
* Approach angle - 40°
* Departure angle - 33°

What do you guys think? These should be enough, right?

Indeed, it is bought. Felix: the registration regulations seem similar between Germany and Poland. If the 4x4x4 was not registered previously, it would virtually be impossible to register it now as a used truck for the very reasons you explained in your comment.

Re: Mercedes OM 501 LA V6 engine / MB VG 1700 transfer case - few questions

Pirx,

Thank you for the above clarification re transfer box manufacturer.

Could you educate me on something please?

When the transfer box description states VG 1700-3W/1,403, does it mean that the high speed (i.e. road) gear is 1,403 times faster than the low speed (i.e. off-road) gear?
