[MOC] Toyota Hilux N40

Recommended Posts

After months of construction, it's finally done. The Toyota Hilux (N40 generation) is one of the best pickup trucks ever. Often thought of as tough (that's and understatement), Top Gear failed at killing it by drowning it, setting fire to it, and putting it on top of a building that was then blown up.

It took me around 6 months of on and off building to perfect this truck. It originally intended to have a two speed automatic gearbox, but it proved to be too inefficient. Then I got the 42043 and thought of creating a manual high-low range gearbox instead. This gearbox came out much more efficient than the previous one, so I stuck with it.

Specs:

- Power - AAA Battery Box

- Propulsion - 1 XL Motor

- Steering - 1 Servo

- Control - V1 Reciever

- High Range Gear Ratio - 1:2.334

- Low Range Gear Ratio - 1:3.89

Looks and performs great! Any chance of chassis instructions or disassembly process pictures?

Thank you. Yes, I will be making instructions but they won't be out until 2-3 weeks from now since I am on vacation away from my LEGO.
