It will not return to center,i don't think it is the size of band that is the problem.

I tried different sizes of bands but the resistance was not strong enough to return to the center.

Absolutely cool.  I love the rear fenders.  Is this not what the Lego model should have been?

thanks guys.
i had thought that the Rear end ( behind the tires) should be so short as possible, and round fenders are in my eyes a good solution for that.
tomorrow/ today/sunday the first i will make a vid to show you all functions in detail.
good night

efferman, that truck is amazing.  When I first say this model, that is what I thought it should look like.  Awesome job, as usual.

to fold the fork automatically? All of the real tow trucks which i had in my fingers, even the big ones, had folded it manually. So it is not neccessary for me.
maybe in the big 8109 (8110 tires) which is sometimes buzzing in my head.

Sir Effe, you have officially become my favorite MOCer. This new tow truck is amazing. I thought you were only going to motorize it, but no, you revamped the whole thing! The only thing that bothers me is the location of the IR receiver, but I guess you couldn't fit that anywhere else. Clever use of the new mini turntable.

And about the large scale 8109, do it, do it! Are you going to do 8110 scale or 8258 scale? Because I think that the 8110 scale would be a bit too big, but I guess it wouldn't hurt. Plus, wouldn't it be on a similar scale as this gorgeous Pick-up Truck of yours?

Build on, Effe, my idol!

sometimes i wish the IR sensors would be, like the LED lights, at the end of a Cable. in my opinion this would make the IR system much more flexible and would not need so ugly solutions.

The big 8109 would be in 1:10 also in a bigger scale than 8110. please nail me not at the wall with the big 8109. alone the flatbed would need ca. 40 5x11 rectangular panels.
in the same scale like 9395? let me calculate, 1:15 21 studs wide, this should be possible.
hm nice idea, a fleet of tow trucks.
