JConcepts now has a host of accessory parts available for the Regulator chassis conversion kit. While designing the conversion, the design team took things an additional step by re-designing the entire axle housing and ladder bar assembly based on the original Clod Buster layout. This optimized layout provides several new updates and unlocks even more potential from the JConcepts Regulator. The parts include transmission housing halves, axle tubes, steering blocks, ladder bars, lower link connectors, and connector bar support. JConcepts offers an extensive list of items which can be purchased through our Shapeways store. In order to take advantage of some of these updates, it is necessary to use the below items in conjunction with the Shapeways parts to completely outfit the vehicle in performance condition.

Below, walk through the design of the optimized parts for the Regulator axle assembly and check the brief description of each to learn more about the product improvement.

Regulator transmission case –

The transmission case has undergone many improvements by eliminating items which are no longer used with the use of the JConcepts Behind Axle Steering kit. The team spent a considerable amount of time removing geometry, slimming down the size and replacing bolt and nut together features with single screw solutions. During these updates and changes, it was possible to incorporate sliding motor capability so users can now change motor pinions to try new gear ratios in events where it is legal to do so. The Regulator transmission case is a major upgrade to the Retro truck scene and it doesn’t end there. Two of each case is needed to build two complete transmissions.

In addition, #2864 and #2866 are needed for motor mounting, movement and clamping.
If a locked rear axle is used, the #2867 is needed to brace the new rear transmission case.
