Hi,

Summer is ending, and I decided to create something to make another outdoor video. So, here’s my trial truck:

Thank you!

Will you make LDD?

I don't work with LDD, neither planning to make instructions. But it doesn't seem hard to recreate I think; more photos on Brickshelf soon, as usual.

I tried that suspension on previuos MOCs and I know well how good it works. Awesome truck, I like the tubular body but I would change it for liftarms to get less weight and more structural rigidity.

Very nice!

What's the usual length of the flex axles used for a leaf spring suspension? I would like to buy some of them and don't know which size.

It depends, large trucks which dont need too much suspension but must take a lot of weight tend to use short leaf spring suspension with rigid axles, but if you want to make an small model like this one, a 7L flex axle installed in the chassis with an small curvature or in a U position should be enough.

Mr. Paave, another great build! Proportions are good, the concept is good, and I am just amazed by the capability of it. :thumbup:

LXF, I fully support your desire for making LDD models. :wink:

Only the bodywork left to do, which lenght are the flex axles in the wheelarches?

Current progress:

I don't get enought angle out of the suspension, also the LDD is glitching and doesn't want to connect the receiver and the plate where they should be, now they are 1 stud outward, like the battery box. The turquoise is the spring , not available in LDD

I used 11L axles for everything here.

Finished the LDD file , download

NOTES:

The cabin can't be connected correctly because of a collision.

The flex axles don't bend enought in LDD

Thanks for the instructions! I haven't dived into trial trucks much, so building a copy was a great learning exercise - the leaf springs in particular work incredibly well!

I reveived yesterday all the missing parts :

I'm impressed by the offroad capacity, even with low battery.

I'd have a small problem. The weight repartition is not good on my truck :

I'm using stand battery box, which is quite heavy. Do you think the problem comes from that ?
