posticon Cool New Three-wheelers (and other things of that nature)


I figure that we need a place we can post links and comments about some of the latest developments in the three-wheeling community, so post away!

VOLKWAGEN GX3!!!


Okay, since I put this thing up first, I will start it off with this:
HOW COOL IS THE VOLKSWAGEN GX3????? I WANT ONE!
What do I do to get one? I mean, yeah, I might be able to build something like it, but for $17K I wouldn't mind the fact that someone else built my toy for me!

I have to admit, that's pretty cool.

However, I think 17K is a bit high for me. I'd rather build my own for that price.

There was quite a stir over the GX3 on the VWVortex forums. [url][sign in to see URL]

Alas, it was too good to be true and VW, citing liability concerns, has canned it. emoticon

Re: Cool New Three-wheelers (and other things of that nature)


I thought I would post a couple of favorite links of mine.

[sign in to see URL] - Interesting Swedish trike build.
NOTE REVERSE MECHANISM and TURBO!

[sign in to see URL] - Beautiful build, neat compact layout.

[sign in to see URL] - Click on "DP1". Not a trike but a fantastic, well documented build of a "home built" Hayabusa powered/ALL WHEEL DRIVE track car. HUGE amount of information and a fun read. Note the "Design" archives. Oh to combine the AWD of this with the layout of the SUB3wheeler noted above! emoticon Three wheel [sign in to see URL] would be cool!

[sign in to see URL] - An interesting home built with an emphasis on safety.

[sign in to see URL]~norton2/[sign in to see URL] - another interesting home built. Note the archives and the log book.

[sign in to see URL] - Finally, the home of the TriMagnum. The best thing here is the document archive. Note especially the article on 3 wheel handling dynamics and also an article on registering your hombuilt vehicle.

All right. Here's another one. Just found it this morning. Apparently it made a stir at SEMA. While similar in concept to a number of things out there, the execution looks nice. Looks a little heavier than their claimed 1300 lbs to me though... [sign in to see URL]

Re: Cool New Three-wheelers (and other things of that nature)


hmmm.. canopy looks similar in style to the one used by Warp Five Engineering.. but after looking at the images and video, I am very impressed. Especially when they lost everything in a fire back in march of 2006 and still made it to the show with a fully functional prototype.

I have to admit that my drawings of the Econopod look very similar to the Ale', but mine is shorter length and narrower track, with what I hope is a better looking rear end (although I have not tested my design in a wind tunnel as of yet).

Nice, again!

Re: Cool New Three-wheelers (and other things of that nature)


I keep wondering if they didn't mean to spell the name of it wrong? They spell it Ale' and tell you it's pronounced "alay".....[sign in to see URL] like the french word "allez" which means "go". The way it is now, I just think of beer when I see it! emoticon

[sign in to see URL] new trike. Not really Indy-cycle esque as you ride ON it instead of IN it. But interesting nevertheless. I first saw some spy shots taken on Deal's Gap on some auto blog a number of months ago. The website just went live last night An obnoxiously flash-heavy website but here it is..
