It is a Land-rover Defender 110 in scale 1:8.5. The final size is 65x28x29 studs, and the weight is 3.1kg.
It have 5+R speeds secuential gearbox, with auto clutch.
The mechanism disconnect the clutch, change the speed and connect it again, pushing only once the controller.
I know this is not realistic, but I you want to control the gearbox remotely, this is the only way to do it.
The speeds ratio
R - 2.08:1
1 - 1.67:1
2 - 1.25:1
3 - 1:1
4 - 1:1.25
5 - 1:1.67
Also it has 2-speeds transfer case:
High range - 1:1
Low range - 3:1
Finally it has RWD and AWD modes
The maximal speed in high range 5th speed is around 4 kph(2.5mph)
The steering system is based in the real live axles system, it not uses the typical rack.
It has disc brakes in all wheels. They are very powerfull, enought to stop the transmision.
Also you can disasembly the bodywork removing only 4 pins and the steering wheel, do it is very fast.
Finally a video, it is a little bit long, but in it you will see all features and it running cross-country
As always, you can find mode info and pistures in my website: sheepo.es
