Lego mini trophy truck

Recommended Posts

I decided to repost all my latets MOCs in their own topics, because the common topic doesnt seem to be really working...

So here we go:

This little truck had some 3 major overhauls untill it came to this point.

Originally I used the new suspension arms, but due to the spring connection points they created too much friction for smooth soft suspension.

At first I used hard springs in front, but the redesigned front suspension allows for a softer variant with springs supported by half bush.

The rear suspension does not use springs, but it uses the 9L links which support the axle to also give it flexibility.

The suspension is the softest I ever made, the suspension will move a bit even by blowing hard on it

Front suspension has over 3 cm of travel and the rear has over 4 cm of travel thanks to the drop axle.

The rear axle allows for various different gear ratios, and you can use both RC motor outputs:

I prefer the 1:3 gear ratio without a differential, as it allows the truck to go uphill and over bumps with ease, while still being fast enugh for walking speed.

The bodywork was inspired by Monster Energy color combination and it mostly uses panels to create the organic shape.

I think it's a great little MOC but a different body, possibly a tubular body with small panels, could look better and save weight!
