rm8 posted a topic in LEGO Technic and Model TeamHello, and welcome back to Toyota Technic showroom. I did this model for a long time, almost 3 years of sketches, prototypes, different version. And now I am ready to stop and say: "enough" After FJ series with a bulky chassis and wobbly steering I want something lighter and more accurate at steering. So I started with a new chassis with Servo motor mounted on front axle. This is not realistic, but steering backlash is almost zero. Remembering the FJ, and its "high" frame with aux M motors inside (winch), i decided to remove any extra fucntions except driving. Hilux's chassis is thin and light comparing to FJ. And one more important thing is that the body is removable now. I can remove one body and use another one. I do not need personal chassis with all that expensive motors for every modification of Hilux (at one of the moments I have 7x FJ's assembled with full electrics at each). This is Toyota Hilux 4 door double cab version, 4-th generation that was produced from 1983 to 1988. Model of this Gen was presented both with solid front axle and independent front suspension. My is early version (83-85) with solid axle. You can see this genertaion Hilux at Top Gear "Kill a Toyota" episode, and Back to the Future movie with single cab and extra cab version. - control: Smart Brick (Sbrick) - drive: XL motor, 4x4 transmission with axle differentials - steering: Servo motor - solid axles - front suspension 4 link triangulated - rear suspension 3 link - openable doors, bonnet, tailgate - 5-seater saloon - LED front lights - removable pickup bed and cab - wheels: 62-68 mm weight:1020 gr (without power source and RC receiver) Black wheels are painted with spray-paint. Saloon is for 5, but rear bench is foldable, and this is the only place to hide battery block. Transmission is all-time 4x4 with axle differentials - front suspension 4 link triangulated - rear suspension 3 link (including pan-hard rod) - openable doors, bonnet, tailgate Removable pickup bed and cab, I can also remove front bumper, doors and front fenders for larger wheels, for example. And the last, the best presentation for 4x4 Toyota is real adventure. Video was filmed mostly at Crimea, while my Vacation this year. This is kind of LEGO Techic anniversary run much more fotos here FLICKR Thanks for watching. Comments, questions, I am ready)
After months of construction, it's finally done. The Toyota Hilux (N40 generation) is one of the best pickup trucks ever. Often thought of as tough (that's and understatement), Top Gear failed at killing it by drowning it, setting fire to it, and putting it on top of a building that was then blown up. It took me around 6 months of on and off building to perfect this truck. It originally intended to have a two speed automatic gearbox, but it proved to be too inefficient. Then I got the 42043 and thought of creating a manual high-low range gearbox instead. This gearbox came out much more efficient than the previous one, so I stuck with it. Specs: - Power - AAA Battery Box - Propulsion - 1 XL Motor - Steering - 1 Servo - Control - V1 Reciever - High Range Gear Ratio - 1:2.334 - Low Range Gear Ratio - 1:3.89 And of course the mandatory shot from below Thanks
