I am working on a re-engineered skellenger rear end. I got the idea
because Mike want to sell his unmachined skellenger parts.
It is all based on european standard components according
to DIN like the bearings, gears and screws.
I tried to keep it simple and cheap as possible.

I am planning to built and test it next year and put it for a
free download on http://www.grabcad.com.

Merry Christmas.
Michael

I have the latest prices for aluminum 3D printing .

-one Skellenger center part € 304 -
-two Skellenger side cover € 237, -
-one Skellenger rear cover € 118, -

A complete reengineered gearbox will cost € 659.- without taxes .
Parts still have to be machined.

But prices will fall ...

In the end you find out it is cheaper to buy a complete car with a skellenger rear than to build your own. But it was fun.
