  1. Hi all, This is one of my first MOC's after a dark age. I'm really excited about the sbrick, and though it looks like serious competition, I thought I would still enter and complete my project as a personal goal. We have a 1966 Chevy C-10 Truck on air ride suspension. Loosely based on a real 'rat rod' truck. The model is 'bagged' on air ride pneumatic suspension. 4 motor functions: 1. L for Drive 2. M for Steering 3. M for Air Pump 4. M for Ride height via air switch. I worked really hard on trying to get fancy with a transmission, but they are either too big for the limited space I have or just aren't robust enough. In my pictures you can see that I tried various setups based on some notable Technic builder's models. Ultimately, they just didn't function as smoothly as I had hoped. I did have fun building them though. :-) With the frame on the ground, and it being a short cab, I didn't have room to implement the transmission with PTO to control the air pump (as originally planned) so I'm scrapping the transmission and just simplifying so I can make the deadline. First Transmission 4 speed, using a small LA to shift And here is the LA installed on top: The shifting was rough and the resulting transfer to the wheels was sketchy at best. I tried a two speed robust from Sariel and also one of Sheepo's 4 speed compact transmissions that uses rubber band tension. Sheepo's transmission is really clever. I tweaked it and had modest success but overall it was too complicated for my model.The real truck was supposed to be a '3 on the tree' so i might work that in after the competition. Here we have slfroden's linear gearbox. It uses a large LA and works very well. It's just huge. It can fit sideways in my model behind the cab, but the height is 4 studs too tall. Also getting it transferred to the drive train seemed overly complicated considering the placement. I think in a future moc, i'll start with the transmission and build the car around it. The LA is under the M motor. It's a WIP at the moment so keep that in mind. I do have a servo motor, but I JUST built lucio switch's awesome white 4WD truck. It used up my two XL motors also so I planned to use the L motor I have to drive this moc. It's probably not enough, but being as it is a 'cruiser' with air ride suspension, it certainly isn't built for performance. Stay tuned for more body work and a video. Thank you for any suggestions or comments.
