If you don't do pictures because they are too big, then you should consider resizing them. Adding pictures to Brickshelf which are larger than 800x600 puts an unnecessary load on their free service and results in slow loading times, which makes people click away from pictures of your creations prematurely. This is a shame because you usually biuld some great models.

Thanks both.
I will take it as good advice and a big compliment, i will resize the pictures on the end of the day.

Yes U are right. Also the trailer could be extended so it can be even longer.

No, I am not. Because it isn't easy, and this way it steers 'normally' like the real trailer would do . Also if i link the steering from the front it will be indirect, its a big problem. So i chose this idea

Could you not use another motor on the same channel as the steering of the truck?
