Hello!

I have built yet another mini trial truck, this time I tried to replicate the Russian Gaz 66 off road truck:

To use the model team tires I had to make it very compact, and as a result I had to use a chain to transfer power to the driveshaft, which I do not like.

I used leaf springs (flex axles) in my live axles, which both makes it very compact and gives it tons of suspension flex.

  • 4x4 - M motor
  • Steering - M motor
  • Leaf spring live axles

The front axle is very cool!

I've made LDD model of chassis for this truck:

Thanks!

I was going to make it myself, but my computer is broken.

And the front axle is indeed very useful

This is very nice and compact! You have inspired me to make something small that crawls over stuff :grin:

To me too ! Maybe two micro-motors and wire control?

That is very good engineering in a very small space. Two good targets met. Also could you perhaps have used some of these (http://alpha.bricklink.com/pages/clone/catalogitem.page?P=56904c01&name=Wheel%2030mm%20D.%20x%2014mm%20with%20Black%20Tire%2043.2%20x%2014%20Offset%20Tread%20(56904%20/%2056898)&category=%5BWheel%20&%20Tire%20Assembly%5D#T=C wheels. They are the same size as the ones you used but with an axle hole in the middle

I don't have those tires, but they would be almost perfect as they are rubber and not hard plastic. It would get one stud wider though, which isn't too bad

You managed to squize all important (power) functions in such small package. Very nice :wink:
