8081M 4WD L RC. Deep 8081 set modification.

Was inspired by Thirdwigg and his awesome modification with real 4wd and live suspension. Front suspension is my own.]

8081M 4WD L RC

M - mod

4WD - four wheel drive

L - long base

RC - power function remote controlled

The real model closer to moc is Isuzu Vehicross.

Short about original 8081 set:

Good base for building rc car. Need a little number of additional specific details to make it rear wheel drive RC. For 4wd it need much more details, especially for front axle.

Advantages: stylish good looking lightweight model with front independent suspension

Disadvantages: Stupid rear suspension with 11x5 frame that goes down to ground...

Plan was to make it fully rc with 4WD and solid live axles that fit 62's wheels as civil allterrain version and 68's wheels as mud-terrain off road vehicel.

Final specifications:

1. Solid live axles

2. Differentials at axles withou diff between axles

3. XL motor for propulsion

4. M motor for steering.

5. Big battery block (AA) as fuel

6. Openable hood, hatch

7. Openable doors with locks

8. Easy detachable front bumper for hard offroad

Torque from XL goes to axles with 1:1 and then geared down with differentials 20:28

Steering Motor is geared down for precise steering. Motor is mounted right on the front axle to avoid of making two independent rotating axles going to front axle. That was a good idea, because motor fits good under the hood.

Wheels:

AT version 62х20,

MT version 68.7х34.

Wheel base is longer that original 8081 by 3 studs

It's nice to see some people still doing mods to sets.:sweet:

I find the body work too square though (Its more square than Dluders 90's glasses are round):blush:.
