Been looking at Hypertruck Bushing adapters for the Matrix III trucks on a board I am working on.
I looked at @xsynatic’s bushing risers and Radium’s Matrix II adapters for inspiration. I preferred not cutting the bushing so I wanted to make an angled surface adapter for the top of the bushing to sit against the baseplate. I initially tried to make the baseplate adapter compatible with the Radium bushing seats but unfortunately they are a tad too thick to be able to fit everything inbetween the baseplate and the hanger.
So this means I will try two new adapter plates per bushing. @RipTideSports helped me with getting some of their awesome bushings (thanks Brad!) and I set off to design something. Already went through some 3D-printed iterations and I’m pretty happy with the preload I am getting on the bushings at the moment. Next step is to CNC a set for actual testing. Will order the material this week.
Here’s a render, cross section view and some pictures of the trucks with the 3D printed adapters.
