The history of the vehicle is quite long. First began to be fit to travel on our road of “Niva-2121” – put her on the big wheel from the “Jeep”. Traveled on it with a neighbor (also, incidentally, an avid fisherman and hunter), but the cross for our seats acusados enough. Kupipi DPJ “Fields” copesa tires “Shine”. Clipped in the back of the arch, the post-Willie protruding wheel arches, so that the dirt is not cast on glass, and went back. In General, I liked it, only inside the little space and the water machine does not float. Wanted to do more. One friend hunter offered to change “Field” to the bus company “Trekol” bridges UAZ-31514 and a bunch of spare parts. We agreed, and then it all started: I decided to make a machine that could take you there, where no foot of man! Then began the search in the Internet and technical journals (including in the “Modeller-designer”) of various information on the construction of vehicles. Four months have all seen and read. Ripe and project the future of Rover.
Still 2-3 months collecting the parts. Bought a used UAZ-31514 10 thousand rubles, and VAZ-2109 8 thousand rubles as donors.
In may 2008 began construction, and in September of the same year, the Rover has already passed the first test, and as shown in the future – we coped with the task! In two years, hitting more than 7,000 km of major failure never had, always got back to the house on their own.
As is clear from what was said earlier, the engine capacity of 70 HP and a working volume of 1500 cm3 in unit with the clutch and five-speed gearbox was used on all-terrain vehicle purchased from VAZ-2109.
First of all, welded wheels (rims) chamber under a low pressure tire firm “Trekol” size 1300x600x533, designed for a working pressure of from 0.08 to 0.5 kgf/cm2. For them used the “vazovskie” wheels. Disks left intact, and the rims have usilili to 390 mm.
Like building a house start with the Foundation, and we all estimations started with suspension: assembled bridges from UAZ-31514 with homemade wheels and tires factory manufacturing “Trekol”. Bridges are placed apart at a distance equal to the future wheelbase (2970 mm – estimation, it was best for our vehicle) and began to try on the frame on the suspension of palwal-opticheskikh longitudinal leaf springs and hydraulic spring shock absorbers all from the same “UAZ”.
