Nico71 recently posted his Lada Niva 4x4 on the Brick Truck Trial website http://www.bricktruc...?id_article=178 .  He says "A M [motor] operates the steering with U-join and a XL (placed ont the rear of vehicule) operates the drive.  It is also equiped with a 2-speed gearbox and a fake i4 engine.  The wheel steering turns with the wheel."   Of particular interest is his Pendular Suspension and his 2-speed Gearbox:    :oh:

He also posted it on his Brickshelf gallery http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=424879 .  He wrote, "First version has live axle but pendular axle is stronger so it has pendular axle with free shock absorbers. Gearbox, steering wheel. Motorised winch. See more in the techniques folder [ http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=424880 ]" .   There are enough pictures on his "Instructions" subfolder to recreate the MOC:  http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=427159 .  Finally, a YouTube video shows how it drives:  http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=424880 .   :thumbup:  :thumbup:

Those suspension & gearbox certainly look interesting. Nice that no u-joints were used.
