the concept was to get a capable offroader without renounce a good looking body. to get this goal i has made the decission many of the new pf parts.
For the propulsion iam using four of the new Pf- L motors. every wheel is driven by one of the motors
to get a small turning circle i have used a a allwheel steering. every axle has its own PF- Servo which can steered separatley.
the advantage of the new L motor is indiscutable the good mounting possibilitiys. so it is a good idea to use it as part of the structure. there is not more a need for complex frames around the motor.
the most important thing to get a proper look, especially at the flatbed was a low frame. so i have mounted the springs much lower than the springs in the 9398 lego crawler
The most difficult part of the G was the design. here are some evolution steps
finaly some pics of the final version
and now the performance of the naked chassis
now the final vid with the full 2400 grams heavy G
finaly a little size comparisation between my mog und the G
