    If there's no worm gear how can the rotor remain fixed in the vertical position?

    This is the first time among the past several years that I dont buy the flagship set. My plan for this set right now only involves bricklink-ing all the parts to upgrade the bed for the 42030 B model, and maybe some more parts to upgrade the nose.

    Future Set Wishes and Speculation

    Since it's pretty much a fact that Lego Technic release a Volvo product every 2 years, I wanna speculate about the potential upcoming releases. Volvo product lines include: - Wheel loader - Hauler - Tracked excavator - Wheeled excavator - Mine dumper - Paver - Rollers - Pipelayers - Demolition excavator Since TLG seems to go for the biggest product in a line (L350F wheel loader, A60H hauler), I think we will see a Volvo EC750E or EC950F in the future. And then a Mine dumper R100E.

    I dont know either, but since the front part can steer and oscillate at the same time, a ball joint is the most likely possibility.

    From the back you can see the stacking frames and the portal hub in the horizontal position. The rear part indicates that the body is a whole solid piece. So there shouldn't be pendular axles or sth. The only form of suspension is the articulated ball joint.

    There should be a ball joint at the articulation point, but that's all to it.

    Another advantage of the new dumb battery box is that replacing batteries only happens on one side only. That means the battery box does not need to be taken out and can be part of the reinforcing structure.

    This gearbox is a 4-switch multi functional gearbox, not a multidirectional gearbox. The change in direction still happens at the batterybox. There are two opposite arrows in the sticker near the red connector switch. It's like the 42052 gearbox, but instead of 2 switches for 4 functions, it has 4 switches for 4 functions, and one end of each switch is blocked. It's different from the 42042 gearbox in the sense that the 4 switches can only be switched in one direction.

    The true pinnacle of gearbox and RC.

    The level in the rear controls the rear elevator. The battery switch is the red connector on the driver's side.

    Im not really fond of the gearbox and the complicated drivetrain. I'd exchange them for proper suspensions and a tailgate any moment.

    Thank God the dumb battery box is here.

    And the new engine, despite being smaller, is still not in the correct position! Volvo haulers has transverse engines.
