What is the perfect vehicle?
Report this Post
Can't Post

Hello adventurers!

I'm not quite sure if this is in the right area, but please let me know if it isn't. I'm currently part of group for a college project and would greatly appreciate your input. Our task is to design a vehicle that is built for a specific purpose. We have decided on "adventurers" in general and would like to hear your ideas. We have decided on an suv type vehicle with specific details to help aid people in their goals. The specifics even go as far as specific connections on the outside of the vehicle for cameras such as GoPros. Please let me know of any ideas that you guys have and don't be afraid of anything too "out there" or specific. Even letting me know what you need in a vehicle, or something that you have noticed would make your life easier (in regards to transportation, luggage space, materials, etc..) would help me immensely.

Thanks in advance for all of your help and ideas,

Logan

Definition of EPIC
1: of, relating to, or having the characteristics of an epic <an epic poem>
2a : extending beyond the usual or ordinary especially in size or scope <his genius was epic Times Literary Supplement>
b : heroic

That line was beyond the usual or ordinary, especially in scope. It was also heroic.

My ideal vehicle is. . .
Full welded tube chassis.

Onboard gyroscope so I cannot flip the vehicle over .

Big block v8 with no less than 1800 horse power and at least 1800 low end foot pound of torque that runs off a cold fusion reactor so I can go like 500,000 miles of a gallon of water.

Coil style suspension for maximum axle articulation.

Full skid plate package

53 in tires with on- board central tire inflation system.

Transfer case with gearing for deep crawl ratio but yet still can cruse at 80 in comfort

Room for 4 plus gear and roof rack.

Tow package.

Rock and Prius crushing bumpers with 30,000lb winches front and back.

Front and rear brakes are disks on the drive shafts just off of the Transfer case outputs.

Visually it look like a unimog and jeep wrangler mated.

Not too bad, but the approach and depature angles are not real good. The tires need to be moved outward more.
