Few days ago I've bought new 8878 Rechargeable battery and I was sure that it will be perfect for creating small and remote controlled truck ;)

It's small, It's blue, and I hope that it looks nice?

Impressive! It surely is a lot more difficult to build smaller models with great functions than larger ones. And this is not only a great PF-truck but it is also beautiful in its looks. Great Work!

This is great and looks like a lot of fun to play with. I was actually trying to build something similar a while ago, but this is better than anything I was going for.

Maybe some PF-lights aswell?

No honestly; it's magnificent a build.

Great truck. :thumbup: It looks very subtle and would fit it in well in a Lego Town. Just one question, where is the video? :grin:

Of course the new much smaller battery box helps a lot with making the vehicle smaller than any I've seen so far, but you've still done an impressive job packing all this stuff into a vehicle this small.  Nicely done.

That is one of the best looking Lego trucks I have ever seen, it's brilliant! Love the RC function too, very neat :)

Can I just request on thing? Never take this apart. I love it! it's the greatest RC truck I've ever seen and looks just like a regular lego truck, but it's RC! I love it so much! If only I had he genius to create such a thing myself!

very clever! I like messing around with remote control vehicles, but I never manage to make any thing that looks good as well.

Clever how you were able to add steering in 6-wide. It fits perfectly with the official sets.

It's multifunctionomical.

I tried, but they were taking place for the front wheels :(

Nice how you managed to keep it compact. Now make a 7-wide back (surprised Ralph_S didn't make a comment about this) and put a minifig in the front!  :classic:
