The idea for this orange and black monster truck came when I was dis-assembling the Artic Truck, Technic model 42038. It is not very big, with wheel size 81.6 x 38 and is remote controlled and very playable. The difficulty in this model was to find a solution for the front wheel steering and for the rear differential. The steering mechanism should be under a different angle than the traction, because the traction angle is too steep. The rear differential had the problem that the small gear wheels came loose from their shafts under load. Both problems are solved and now you can play without loosing gears or wheels or anything!
The features are:
- Traction with L-Motor
- Steering with Servo-Motor
- Front and back axle suspension with long travel
- Can drive over obstacles
- Full interior
- Build up in separate modules
- Possibility to mount bigger wheels
Hope you will enjoy the pictures and I will make a video soon too!
Thank you for your support!
