I am proud to present my Unimog U5000.

Unimog U5000 by legomuppet9, on Flickr

I used Nico 71's Unimog V2 chassis with some minor modifications to accommodate the pieces I didn't have (the most noticeable of which was the steering). Onto that I created my own body, which can be removed in three pieces. It has pendular suspension on the front and rear axles, the rear being supported by hard springs. It is driven by an XL motor geared down 1:15.003. The end result is 217.54 Ncm of torque and 9.7rpm (calculations thanks to Sariel's Gear Ratio Calculator :classic:). The steering is done using an M Motor with a gear ratio of 1:9 and a 16 tooth gear drives a 4L steering rack. An inline 4 cylinder engine is also powered by an M Motor with a ratio of 2:1. The drive and steering is connected to an IR Receiver and the engine is connected straight to the Battery Box.

On the back I am proud to include an England Flag, which was actually quite challenging to build...

@ legomuppet9: That's a nice "studded" adaptation of Nico71's Unimog v2 Trial Truck. Does the front bonnet on your truck flip up to reveal the engine bay?

Then it would probably be ok, however I can't try as it is now taken apart.
