Hallo! I'm using Lego Digital Designer for a few days in order to create a driven, steered and individually suspended portal axle with a realistic pivot point. But I failed to combine all aspects. My endurance has expired. So, is there anyone who wants to accept the challenge and solves this problem. I would be grateful about a lxf-file. Thanks!
Few years ago I made the first big scale portal axles... Now its time to do same at small scale! Here's the result: The axle has a 1:2 portal gear ratio and uses the CV joints for steering. Steering is done via 7 stud long steering rack. Its meant for lighter smaller scale models, like the ones Madoca77 is famous for. I also made some variations of the axle and to top it off I also added the mini 8x8 tatra chassis.

What do you think of this home-made portal axle? Will the axle-8 with stop, not being as well supported as by Unimog portal axle assembly, for example, be able to handle stresses and weight of an attached model? I am anticipating a medium sized chassis but maybe four motors plus servo on the finished machine. Of course cross-bracing and other attachments can be added, not shown to keep this simple. Thanks for commenting - here is the lxf - http://www.bricksafe...portal axle.lxf
