[MOC] 4x4 Deserty Rally Off-roader

Recommended Posts

Good Day. 
This is a small desert-rally styled offroader that was made in roughly 8-9 hours during New Year's holidays. Weight of 637g. Powered by BuWizz v1.

Features:
-4x4 drive with slowest output of buggy motor
-Return-to-center steering (m-motor)
-Independent suspension on all wheels
-Over 2 studs of clearance under the car
-Openable doors, bonnet and trunk.
-Detailed engine bay & interior
-Stickers all over the car, including rear-view mirrors & rear lights
-Minor detailing on the outside (lightbar, antenna...)


The suspension mechanism relies on the vertical movement of the drive input of the axle , changing main pivot point from one CV to another, allowing for each wheel's independent movement from each other.

I really like this car - small, full of nice details, covered with nice set of stickers, fast, and with proportions that are not too far from real thing. 

However, I am also interested in the meaning of ANSYS sticker - In case you did some simulations (FEM, etc.) for this car, would it be possible to show them too?  :grin:

Very cool. IMO one of your best looking models. 

Nice use of the A-arm in the front suspension.

Thanks everyone for commentaries! Apologies for late answer and for bringing this back, but - LDD file ready (Open with LDD Developer Mode (click toggle physics test option) ; medium blue parts are a substitution for 2x 44135 ; 4x soft springs from 6'5l shock absorbers are used for suspension ; the leftover parts in the file shouldn't be a problem)

@HorcikDesigns No tests were performed , but I'd guess a construction brick has the same aerodynamics as this :laugh:

@Aventador2004 A live axle does not allow independent wheel movement , this , is however  an independent suspension , since one wheel's movement does not affect other wheel(s) - as shown in the videoclip embedded in the first post :classic:

I noticed that after, but did not edit my post.
