wow thats some german
And yep, i love doing mods! Every model i own is modded
Where are we going to end if we just accept what we are given...
Before getting too off-topic i give you more intel on my retract approach:
The picture shows the system with its parts in extracted and retracted positions. The black parts are from the stock gear, the red parts have to be 3d-printed by the university.
Currently i calculated all the Forces, depending on the direction in which the gear hits the ground, etc...in addition to manufacturing a retract version and testing it, i am writing a complete project analysis as an exam for my university.
If anyone is interested in detail schematics or 1:1 drawings or even the CAD-files, please let me know...
