Hello! This moc was made a while ago (last year), but I realized, there is no topic about it yet. I wanted to make a heavy and fast trial truck from Zis e134. Original model: My version: folder: http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=496827 Basically, it was built for truck trial race, so it has a "propulsion motor/weight" ratio, each RC buggy motor carries ~ 1 kg. There are 4 buggy motor built in, each axle has one. Only two gearings (40:8 and after that a 24:8 reduction) are in the drivetrain in each axle, so I hadn't problems with efficiency. Total wieght became 4190 g. I used 1957 parts to build it. It's my longest and heaviest trial truck yet, total length is 610 mm (width: 283 mm). The 4 motors give enough power to reach 1,7 km/h top speed (flat surface), I used two RC units to power them. I think the most important part in these 8x8 trucks is the suspension. I tried to make a long travel one, which allows the wheels to make contact with the ground in extreme terrain also. The rear axles are built in a unit, which has a linkage (see pictures). This unit can bend also, but not sideways. The two front axles can bend sideways, and lenghtwise also. So without springs, the suspension does it's job: The second and third axle are connected together with these bars. They seems weak to here, but I can say, there weren't problems with those during the tests and races. They don't hold the axles, only make positioning, but of course, some force can be appear: Bottom: I made some details, like net in the driver's door, flags, grilles to the front: This truck was able to drive in heavy snow.
