Holy moment diagrams Trevman, that's a torque-load of data points!!!!Math aside, it is chock full of cool line drawings eh? DIN3 plate info, for example:
Make a good t-shirt print
A similar set of documents exists for the round cabs, I have it... someplace. It's not near as comprehensive as the square cab documentation though.
But your hallowed MB engineers avoided the real math. They put the Mog on a set of steps. No rolling downslope here as the axle loads are directly over the contact patch on the level platforms/ measurement surfaces. Good stuff for a staid German coach builder, but what is a poor rock-crawler to do?
Couldn't do much with the screenshot, but the bottom line is that static tipping is just not a good model for the dynamics of a downhill run. I have noodled some more on my last best post, and think that it is also deficient in the modeling. I am messing with it, but it is really tedious work, and no way to prove/ disprove the results.
One takeaway from this post is that the next time I am facing a steep downhill, I will put the Mog in "hopping up the stairs mode". No roll-overs, that way.
All in fun, of course.
Edit: Trev, I am thinking that MB must publish uphill/ downhill/ sidehill slope limits for all models of Unimog. Any idea of where to access such data, for at least the 406/ 416 and SBU's? The interesting part would be how they test or calculate for this, and what sort of safety margin (if any) they incorporate. So many variables on the up/ down slopes, it could be a nightmare they avoid. But if the data is there, it would be cool to see how it compared to calculations.
