Not sure if this post have to go in the Technic or Town area, but since it is about City Truck I'll try here first :)
This is a modification (MOD) that is not about the look. Tried to keep the look on the Truck as close as possible to the original set. But it has got some internal modifications. This is version 1 of 2. See also the next thread about the mod of the 3221 truck.
This version was first built before a Brikkelauget meeting some month ago. There I was showing them the prototype. The only modification I have done later is lower the IR-receiver so it is flush with the roof of the trailer. I have also fixed the steering so it works a bit better now.
Here is the original set 7848.
Pictures says more than 1000 words, so here is some pictures of the thing: (click on the images to see larger versions)
More pictures can be found here.
Here is two videos of the truck in action:
(Sorry for the dark videos, but I have not figured out how I can adjust that. I'm using an iPhone for recording.)
