Inspired by FTTS International army truck. Front axle driven by 8 knob wheels. One PF XL motor for movement, 1M for steering, working headlights. Both axles are pendular. The whole truck is very durable, stable and strong. The design is not that good as it could be to acquire low weight. My truck is the second lightest out of 13 that are in the competition.
Length: 32cm
Width: 19cm
Weight: 955g

I like the open TECHNIC building style (which is reminiscent of the old-style Technic Brick sets from the 1990s).  The hubcaps are interesting, and the open door frames are good.  This lightweight truck should travel well over rough terrain!   :classic:  It is a good representation of the real FTTS International truck (from http://www.g503.com/...ic.php?p=742243 ):

It really goes well over the obstacles. Unfortunately I still did not have enough time to make a video. The only thing that is against its first place in the race are my driving skills  :sad:
