Good news,

today I´ve received the last parts, so I can start building the truck with new steering system.

Pics will follow then.

Nice creations!
The form and colorscheme made me think of the RV vehicle in the old TV-series "Ark II" from 1976.

But as you see of the pictures, the Ark was a 6 wheeled vehicle.
Noting is impossible, the impossible only take longer time.

Haha, that´s true, really looks a bit like as RV :blush: Was not intentional.

Ok, after a long night i´ve got the first results....

I´m not finished the chassis, but I was able to test the steering and drive speed (4x4 atm).

Driving speed seems a bit to fast, but I´ll try another gear ratio at the portals with 8 tooth gear or another ratio at the motor.

Steering: Works perfect. Very tight and precisely. Steering could maybe faster but ratio between motor and linear actuator is already 1:1 and i didn´t want to make it higher by the loose of torque.

Building the chassis was a little bit more comlicated with the linear actuators, but all in all it´s possible :wacko:

Was to late to get the pics online this morning, so i will show later.

Very impressive looking MOC! Have you set it loose in the wild yet? Very curious how it performs.

Thinking of building it myself :grin:

I´m sorry, but atm I sadly don´t have the time to go into the wild and there´s too much snow out there :wink:

Think it will take some time to get outside to test it.

Hi there,

no i wasn´t in the wild meanwhile :wink: ...

But i´ve tried a new chassis setup with LDD.

As you can see there is a XL-Motor for every axle, so it will need two battery boxes then.

I´m not really sure if this will work fine. Just playing around a little bit, inspired by the 4x4 from Lego.

What do you think about it ?
