[TC17] WIP Scrapper

Recommended Posts

Hello.

Here is my entry for the Mad Max Contest.

My idea is a fast car to get in and out of dangerous areas. 

 

Current functions:

  • All wheel drive
  • 4 speed transmission
  • Central and rear differentials lock when in 1st gear
  • Independent suspension
  • Ackerman steering

 

I currently have 2 L motors mounted, but my goal is to use 6. I plan on having a winch on the rear that can double as a defense weapon with a large ball.

Here is the rolling chassis with 2 wheels off. I still need to make the stepper for the transmission.

I reworked the motor mounts and transmission to add 2 more L motors. This lengthened the chassis 2 studs. I finished the fake motor mounts on the front and added some gearing to connect a steering wheel to the servo.
