Abstract:

The patent relates to a novel vehicle suspension and drive means, comprising a drive shaft extending parallel to the longitudinal axis of the vehicle, and a torsion-transmitting suspension rod extending from a wheel road arm across the drive shaft axis. The suspension rod is specially formed with a clearance opening that accommodates the drive shaft in a non-obstructing relationship. The drive shaft transmits driving force to a drive sleeve that encircles the torsion transmitting rod. A special anti-friction bearing is provided for the drive sleeve.
