On MOCPages , Jesus Achuy posted his Lego model of a Mercedes-Benz Actros 1844 truck for the Dakar Rally.  

Features include:
* Four Wheel Drive* All independent suspension
* LED lights
* Winch
* Has 2 PF XL motors for driving (with 1:5 gear reduction), 1 PF Medium motor for steering (1:12 gear reduction with Clutch), 1 PF M-motor for the winch (1:3 gear reduction), 2 PF IR Receivers (on the same channel for more power to the two XL motors) -- all plugged onto one battery box.

He used ATRX's Suspension .  This YouTube video shows the TREMENDOUS TORQUE this MOC can generate!  It can pull itself up a vertical wall!



See the 42 photos on the jesusachuy Brickshelf gallery .

Awesome MOC!
I love it and I'm not usually into Technic!
Great use of the steering wheel!
