Grainy evidence of suspension

So, I wanted to get an idea of the travel, strength, etc of the bogey suspension and springs.   Keep in mind the wheels are actually the small roller wheels that got on top of each bogey.  But since I don’t have the actual wheels done yet, they are being used temporarily, and they worked just fine.

I know it looks like the Zapruder Film, sorry, cell phone video not that great yet.

This first vid is not real exciting, it’s basically me pushing down as hard as I could while holding the cell camera.  I was very pleased, and it seems like it would take an extreme amount of weight to max out the spring.  In fact, my guess is that other parts would fail before the spring would ever compress all the way:
