Product Idea

RC 4x4 Jeep Wrangler Trailcat

The real Trailcat is what happens when Jeep designers go crazy and stuff the 707 HP engine from Dodge Challenger Hellcat into Jeep Wrangler, along with giant wheels and a whole bunch of upgrades. My project is an attempt at a simple 4x4 off-road crawler that could be turned into an affordable LEGO Technic set. Think of it as of the 9398 Crawler set on a budget: pretty much the same functionality in a considerably smaller package.

The functions are as follows:

  • 4x4 drive without differentials
  • oscillating axles suspension with long travel
  • full remote control with LEGO Power Functions
  • a cabin with simple interior and opening doors
  • simple but robust chassis and lightweight body: final weight is only 888 grams including batteries

I hope you will consider supporting this project. It's high time we finally saw a Technic LEGO Ideas set.
