Hi

it is so obviously that you are comming from Germany and where have seen many old G-models. The shape of the lighthouse is perfect and highly important for easy recognition. Sadly those technic angles are not available in orange too. I am loking forward to the rest when it is done.

yes, the shape of the lighthouse is truly a key to the design of the G. And yes its not funny that there so less technic parts are available in orange. unfortunately i could not build the complete body in orange. it seems that iam fall in love with orange.

so my new rims are arrived and i could make a little testride

the climbing performance is nearly the same like my willys. unfortunately the long wheelbase is limiting a bit.
the currently dimensions are:
wheelbase 43 studs
width 25 studs
steering pivot point distance 15 studs
ground clearance between the front axle 6.5 studs
ground clearance between front and rear axle 7 studs

Wow nice progress.  Do the final gears skip when driving over rough terrain?  To me they sem to unbraced for not skipping

surprisingly i had today no gear slip. Sure it is nothing for a truck trial contest but it works good enough for me. for me it has a big advantage. where the 8110 (23 stus wide) has 9 studs between the steering pivot points, i have with my chassis (25 studs wide) 15 studs between the pivot points. the mudguards could be much smaller.

Interesting modification!  Does that 9395 Pick-Up Tow Truck have enough strength to lift up a car's front wheels?  How heavy a load do you think it can handle?

in the current setup it is strong enough for my offroad hotrod, which is not really heavy

much more load is at this time not possible

I guess you still need to finish the body work looks good,i am in two minds about that set i would like to build the b model and then to a restyle job on it,but then i could use the 40-50 pounds for other lego parts i need.

I wonder if you could use that idea for a pneumatic valve with return to center.
