  1. It may happen. I got it and spen some time to avoid it - the reason is in the bas syncronization between actuators in the drive train. You need to change the actuator position by tyrning its inner orange axle. I have a perfect result now when one actuator was fully extended and another had 1/2 rotation remaing till the end. With such setup they both were syncronized perfectly. I supposed it could be caused by relative gear positions, so possibly it may requre some different rotation angle in your case.
  2. These winches could be hard-syncronized...
  3. They are from Creator Expert sets 10290 (Pickup Truck) and 10279 (VW Van T2), both are expensive enough: https://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemIn.asp?P=70490&in=S @efferman, do the thinner wheels fit the best on the 11L-wide steering parallelogram? The thick ones required 9L ones only to have not protruding outside the body width...
  4. Mustang has "regular-wide" 49.5x20mm tires while here the newly appeared 49.5x14mm tires which are accurate now in diameter to width scale.
  5. It is MPJ's (technicproject's) "Volvo FH Tractor unit". Unfortunatelly, I lost a link to his post
  6. Maybe an nalternave model made of two or even three Megalodons will do it?
  7. Yeah, they are amazing (finally). Once a year, or even more ago, I asked RM8 if rc4wd company, which he co-operated to release 62mm-compatible tires, has ever any plans for 49.5mm tires but they didn't, unfortunatelly. Now, after their official release by Lego I'm happy to live and see their wide use in MOCs. Great Volvo, BTW. I don't want to compare it with another existing Volvo in the same scale, but the both are brilliant and even being quite diferrently-made they mirror the real truck extremelly close. I love the way when the same thing could be achived with totally different techniques.
  8. I think it should be adressed to TLG officialy.
  9. It really well-made and is felt like a real truck steering - you just turn the wheel and don't feel any feedback due truck's weight and hydraulic power steering system. It has a huge difference from rack and pinion steering in cars.
  10. No, they closed this series in 2005 , as they did't provide required space for full-sized semitrailers when had sleepers (the trucks were availabe to operate with shortened dumps only, not to viloate the total lenght limitation). The daycabs met the limitations but were useles for long-haul opeartions. So they were closed and their quite thin market share was divided between traditional cabover series and rigid construction dumps. But.. I still enjoy how interesting they looked: a full-widthed cabover compartment with a "nose".
  11. Oh, my bad. Corrected it, thank you!
  12. Ooops, I forgot about the slew, my bad. I was looking at the excavator image and it turns the whole body, while backhoe defintelly needs all four motors to operate the digging feature. So, right, it needs more then 4 ports. Having the bucket and stick connected will limit the playability alot. Or have a manual switch like 42070 had but it was a silly idea too...
  13. This photo reminds me Scania T-series from 1990-2000 years wich had daycab taken from cabovers shifted rearward and with a conventional hood-"nose" on the engine compartment.
  14. Actually it could be with two modes (I never saw the backhoe which easilly runs and digs at the same time) so let's imagine: - drive - steer - front bucket (it may have a complicated geometry so lifts and then tilts when reaches the higherst point. But the motor stops and the highest point and tilts the bucket only when the second button is pressed) - land the outriggers and switch to digging mode In the digging mode: - lift the main arm - unfold the secondary arm - tilt the rear bucket - raise the outriggers and switch to the drive mode.
