  1. Hi! A few weeks ago I started doing some prototypes on a tracked trial vehicle. It will probably have 2 long tracks with pins in them, skid steering using 2 L or XL motors and one BB. Goals: find a soft and smooth suspension, have a bodywork wich looks kinda like a ripsaw(not EV2), be able to climb some not really steep hills and descend them as well, float on/over the snow. Acheived goals: find a soft and smooth suspension, I will come back with some photos of a smaller prototype to get the idea.
  2. Hello! I have built yet another mini trial truck, this time I tried to replicate the Russian Gaz 66 off road truck: To use the model team tires I had to make it very compact, and as a result I had to use a chain to transfer power to the driveshaft, which I do not like. I used leaf springs (flex axles) in my live axles, which both makes it very compact and gives it tons of suspension flex. 4x4 - M motor Steering - M motor Leaf spring live axles Video:
  3. Good day. This is a trial truck using 1 XL motor for drive, 1 M motor for steering and powered by BuWizz. The drive is powered through a worm gear to 8t gear, creating a powerful 1:8 reduction. It uses model team wheels , they don't have the best perfomance, but it is good enough. For the bodywork I was inspired by ГАЗ-66 (gaz-66), although it isn't an exact copy. Both doors can be opened, the seats and steering wheel are adjustable LDD model available here: download
  4. 4 years since my last tatra and a few months since I don´t build for myself so I started with something simple, a 4x4 tatra. My goals are simple, fun, easy to build and robust. The steering in tatras is the funny part to do because is almost impossible to make it perfect, mine it was... but with inverted ackerman steering , I can do three things to solve it, leave it this way because it will work, turn the steering but the chassis will be less simple or use the steering I used in my old tatras. The suspension uses rubber bricks and I don´t know yet what motor I will use and neither the look, tatra dakar or t815?.
  5. Presenting the 8258-B Crawler, Designed and built as an entry for the 'Crawlify your set' contest [AMS1] I'm a huge fan of b-models in general, but the 8258-B has always been one of my favourites due to great looks and an easy to modify. Or so I thought... In the end, I reckon about 85% of the chassis has been custom built. There are two L motors situated just below the cabin. One powers the front axle, one powers the rear. Both axles have differentials because, being independently powered, loss of traction is a lot less likely and it saves my poor pieces from becoming mangled. Because the 8258-B is rather small (read: narrow) I had a lot of trouble designing a front axle that could house a servo motor without limiting the range of suspension travel. Eventually I gave up and ended up modifying this axle to accommodate a differential (well deserved credit to the amazing @Madoca 1977). However with that said, I have made sure the bodywork stays almost 100% true to the original. The only alteration I had to made was to the rear wheelarches to make room for the balloon tyres: Original wheelarch Modified wheelarch: Also, the front winch kept scraping on obstacles I was trying to climb over so I switched this out for a bullbar, however the two are easily interchangeable. Anyways, here's a video of this thing in action. As always, please let me know what you think. Whether it's praise, criticism or telling me off for building ANOTHER red and black model (I have other colours, I swear!!), I'd love to hear it. More images can be found in this bricksafe folder. Enjoy =)
  6. I got this idea a while ago, when I first got Sbricks. Why not make modular, expendable system of axles and chassis pieces in order to create a system for offroad truck construction. Here is what I sketched up in LDD. First we have a basic axle. It uses 2 XL motors for drive, independet suspension and steering with servo Because we need a minimum of 2 axles, I designed a double chassis holder with two battery boxes: If we combine 2 axles with the double battery holder, we get the most basic configuration, a 4x4x4: In order to expand on the system I designed a single battery chassis extension: Finally we can combine the three basic modules into a 6x6x6: Or even a 10x10x10: In theory there is no limit how far you can go, but I think anything over 12x12 might cause too much strain on the chassis. Important details: - Axles are designed for Claas wheels, which are not in LDD, hence the wheels above may look small - Each axle can use any kind of a combiantion of number of springs and hardnesses for best flexibility and weight support - Each axle is meant to also house and S brick, which allows you fine steering angle control in order to support any kind of configuration or steering mode (only front, only rear, all wheel steering, crab mode) - For now this is still a concept, so I will relase the LDD file once I build, test and polish the concept
  7. Hello Community Today i started a BIG Project. I´ll try to build it as near as possible to the original. Thanks to IVECO they show the details of this truck on their Webpage. (I found it only in german) Functions planned: AWD Pendular Suspension It has leafsprings in real life. I know leafsprings are possible. But not in my scale i believe... But i´ll try When i can´t reaplicate them i will use springs instead 3. Because my last big project failed because of the weight (and broken universal Joints ) i will build in only 1 BB, 2XL, 1 Servo Tires: I think these tires look great and fit the tireprofile realy well. Wheelhubs: I made some heavyduty Wheelhubs for my truck. LXF Updates coming soon. Improvements, Suggestions and Critic are welcome!
  8. Hello Guys :) Being working on a MAN GTS 6x6 Truck. Here´s the LDD Im having a few Problems with the last axle tho. It is powered through the 2nd axle. I think it will be very weak. Do you guys have some Solutions how the last axle can be as powerful as the 2nd? Without doing big Upgrades on that what i have done till now?
  9. Hi everybody! Today I present to you my first experience of construction Trial Truck! During this year I was looking for your ideal 4x4 chassis. And in the end I came to this building. In the final, which turned this freak on 4 wheels medium size range (80-82 mm). The main idea of ​​this project was the task of the displacement of the center of gravity down and forward is not at the expense of detail, as well as the compulsory use of the portal gears on both axes for high permeability and stability of large CG. The power installation in the form of two twin L motors located in the rear axle, where through the reduction gear torque is distributed to the axle gears back and forth, and then the rotation of spreads on all wheels through a gantry gearboxes. This arrangement limits the transverse rear axle moves up one degree of freedom. Yes, the rear wheels are posted on the obstacles, but discomfort on the track it does not deliver. Servo motor for steering is mounted on the front axle, which also lowers the CG and the sprung mass model. Power - LiPo, management - Sbrick. Number of pieces - 875 pieces Weight - 950 grams More photos you can find on my flickr and blog
  10. Hi all! Some days ago, there was a little talk about an international Truck Trial race in Zblj's topic. So, the competition happened, it was a great time, to meet each other again (most of us were in the first international TT meeting, in Keszthely, 2011). It was a bit of special event. The idea came from Mihai Dreve (Braker23 here), He planned a trip to Hungary, and asked us about a TT race. Then Zblj joined us, and became an international event with 3 countries: Romania, Slovenia, Hungary. I'll be advertise here, if there will be another international TT meeting, organized by us (Hungarian Lego Truck Trial Club / Malug). This was the third international Truck Trial themed meeting in Hungary, in 7th of May, 2016. The location was the edge of Budapest, the Harmashatarhegy. It's our usual and most used place for TT, has many advantage, like large area, large variety of terrain, hills, stones, logs, etc. Generally, our TT club is mostly private, it's a closed discussion (rules, location, day) usually, and we only publicize the advertisement (with final rules, etc.) of the race. We know about the possible participants, they are in the discussion. Luckily, Agrof, and Lipko could also join us, so this event became a little Eurobricks meeting, too. Special thanks to Agrof for the awesome first prize! Can be seen at 18:21 in the video below. Thank you, Peter! I put every important information, moments, good photos, shots, trucks, builders, results, and as many fun, as I found - in this video: Watch in 1080p, with fullscreen: Hope you will enjoy the video. More pictures, galleries will arrive soon, I'll put them here. I made another version of the video, with the original sounds, if someone needs, ask me in pm, and I'll send the dropbox link. Comments, questions always welcomed.
  11. I need help making a mini 6X6 trial truck, most of it is done but I need help on the front steering. I need one with drive and perpendicular suspension with no springs.
  12. First ... Thanks to Majkl Spejkl for inspiration and sharing the photos of his instructions "INFERNO" prototypes... I present based on the "INFERNO" the HULK - Stronger - Wide - Greener ..... As the name suggests .... Features: - driven by 2 XL motors - steering of a M motor - V6 fake Engine - MajklSpajkl's fantastic Technic to compensate for the axes in the terrain.... :thumbup: :thumbup: All images you see here: http://www.technic-d...e=24&album=1736 Here's the video for HULK: The Original:
  13. Hello! I recently ordered some new tires from bricklink and wanted to make a truck to test them. I originally wanted to do a Man Kat1, but decided to do something smaller, so I tried to replicate a MAZ 535: The real one has independent suspension (mine has live axles), so it is not very accurate, also the wheelbase is about 1 stud too long between the 1st and 2nd axles. This truck features: 4 live axles with "leaf springs" 8wd with an L motor 4 wheel steering with an M motor The steering is a little sloppy (2nd axle) but it's still very enjoyable to drive. I love these tires, they are super grippy and have a deep tread, much better for offroad than the newer ones:
  14. After building the Gaz 66 truck, I went for a slightly longer truck, an 8x8. I tried to replicate the Finnish military truck Sisu E11T just because the wheelbase is long enough, the bodywork is definitely not very accurate though. The length of the u-joints would make it very hard to make it shorter with this design. Axles 1 and 2 are pretty much the same as the front axle of the Gaz, but this one uses 4 19L flex axles for leaf springs, because 8 shorter flex axles would not fit. Features 8wd with 1 L motor 4 wheel steering with an M motor 4 leaf sprung live axles Video: Suspension test: LDD file: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3uQRNR6UbBWeU5tc0lDU2ZGQTQ/view?usp=sharing
  15. Hi! This is a new chassis I have built, it features: 8 wheel drive by an XL motor 4 wheel steering by an M motor 4 live axles I willl put a winch on it still (any other ideas?). The performance of this thing impressed me a little, because I have only seen 8x8s with 2 XLs or more, so I wasn't sure if it would have enough power. The body will be of the russian Kamaz 6450 truck. I will make an LDD file of this too.
  16. My newest project is inspired by the American King of the Hammers style of off road racing. It is not strictly crawling and is also not strictly desert racing a la the Baja 1000. The vehicles need to be dual purpose. They need to crawl over some pretty unpleasant obstacles and also go all out on open terrain. You can even overtake other competitors during the race. I think this style of Lego vehicle can combine all that has been learned about trial truck and crawlers and combine them. I was most inspired by the appearance of the vehicle at the 1:40 mark in the following video. My KOH truck has the following -2 RC buggy motors -2 V2 IR receivers -2 LiPo rechargeable batteries -2 speed transmission from Sariel http://sariel.pl/201...utput-selector/ -Front and Rear Differential Locks from Sariel http://sariel.pl/201...ferential-lock/ -Auto valve inspired from TechnicBricks w/ onboard compressor -RC4WD Rock Crusher H/T 1.9 tires -Triangulated four links front and rear -telescoping drive shafts -9:1 axles -PF Med steering 5:1 with 8t on rack and Ackerman geometry I am currently mulling over Sariel's newer servo actuated three speed transmission. Initial tests showed that two RC Buggy motors had no trouble back driving the servo and so now I need to figure out how to overcome this shortcoming. The two speeds in the current transmission are not that far apart and with its weight the low gear was not low enough on some obstacles. These problems ought to be corrected by the update to a three speed, but it will take some more work to get there. I tried this transmission http://sariel.pl/201...linear-gearbox/ but the space between low and high was too great without a middle gear to bridge the spread. I am not sold on the benefit versus cost analysis of the locking axles as opposed to axles that contain a spool. I ended up compromising myself and breaking a cardinal rule of not altering parts. The front axle has a 2.5 stud axle and a 3.5 stud axle in it to achieve the track width I wanted. This could be alleviated if I had gone to a 2 stud wider front axle, but I didn't want to change the proportions that much. I don't have many other relevant pictures yet, but I will provide what people ask for. Comments, Questions, Concerns, or any advice is greatly appreciated. v/r Andy
  17. Hi! Since I started to play Spintires I have wanted to build the Ural 4320 truck. I just added an extra axle to my mini rock crawler (http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=107051&hl=), to make it fit the proportions almost perfectly. I haven't started building the body yet, which I may need some help with
  18. -4x4 -Live axles with panhard rods -M motor for steering -L motor for drive (geared 1/5) I wanted to build a truck, that would be as light as possible, but a full pickup body would have weighed it down (I have tried it). So I built half of a pickup without doors, which works very well. I originally wanted to use the smaller tires, but now in winter it performs much better in the snow with the balloon tires. What do you think that looks better? Inspiration:
  19. Hey everyone! I have started tinkering in LDD on my next project. Here are some photos This is the first time I have built anything this large so we will see how it goes. I plan on using 2-4 xl motors for drive and will have an m on steering and another on a gearbox/winch. I think I will build a similar chassis to that of Sheepo's Defender as it is pretty sturdy. Anyway I will report back soon. (I have attached the .lxf if anyone wants it) 8X8.lxf
  20. A small 4x4 chassis with live axles. L motor for drive (geared 12:20) and micromotor for steering. I haven´t been able to make an ok body design, so that is why there isn´t one
  21. As suggested by Jorgeopesi in this thread use this thread to post all trial trucks together for new people coming into Technic. Please post the year of completion, and a reference url. I'll get us started. My Kenworth T55, built in 2012. And my Mack Marble 5T, also built in 2012.
  22. Hey Guys, So I decided to go back to one of my first MOCs and wanted to rebuild the whole thing. Going with live axles, XL motor mounted directly to it, then geared down to 1:3 and have the knob gears to finally deliver the power to the wheels. I will probably do the front end tomorrow. So what do you guys think? Too overkill? :P And this is V1
  23. Hi all! In June 2014 we made a little trip to test an off road RC track, thanks for it to the Home-Road R/C Team. It wasn't a race, just a test. Pictures can be found here: https://www.dropbox....palya-teszt.rar Video: download link: https://www.dropbox....t-kis-meret.mp4 I recommend the end part from 28:00 to 29:00, some interesting and funny moments can be seen. We used two crawlers, a 6x6 test chassis, and two trial trucks. I hope we can use the track in the future, a cooperation with the RC team is in process. If we had more time, the video would be better, but because it was together with the RC team, we had limited time before their race. The main test vehicle was a crawler, has also topic here: http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=97878 Hope you like it. Feel free to ask or comment.
  24. Hello people of EB, this is my first post here. So, this is an army truck used by the Finnish military. The building process took about a month for me. The drive motor is of course an XL-motor, which is hooked up to Sariel's 2-speed trial truck gearbox. I'm sure you can find it on his site. Shifting gears works with remote control, and so do drive and steering of course. Inside the gearbox are the gears 12/20 and 16/16. One XL-motor has plenty of torque to drive this thing, especially with the V2-receiver. Both axles have 3-link live axle suspension. Front axle has hard yellow shocks, and rear axle has soft red shocks, for obvious reasons. The real truck has leaf springs, but as you all know they are rather silly to do with Lego. The steering M-motor is sitting on top of the front axle and is geared 8/40. The doors can be opened and the 5-cylinder engine in the cabin is attached to the XL-motor. The real Sisu has a 6-cylinder engine, but I couldn't fit that. At the rear of the truck you can find a spare tire, which is a lot smaller than the other tires due to lack space and saving weight. Sorry for the bad pictures :/
