About this creation

Small 4x4 Chassis

This small 4x4 chassis has full suspension and steering.


I was exploring the use of the new "3 long" Technic Universal Joint which was introduced in 2008 and I built this small 4x4 chassis.











The "new" Technic Universal Joint 3 Long has some part naming issues currently!



and


Added new 7 stud solution pics!



Clearly much is removed to see the gear train.


The Home of Republic of Texas Navy in LEGOs is right here on MOCpages.

enjoy

Quoting Percy Jackson great job on the chassis, i love it.
I am glad you like it!
Quoting Percy Jackson Just one thing, the 3-long thing wasn't introduced in 2008, Ive had it since i was 7 and that was years ago.
If you click on the pics and look on peeron and bricklink you will find that they both say 2008. So unless you were born in 2001 or later you are mixing up this new part with the older Technic, Universal Joint, 4 Long http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=9244 hope this helps kurt

Quoting EFFEUNO 471 Thanks alot for the advice! Works fine now. I have built many lego mechanisms and vehicles (not posted) and this is my solution for a 8 studs wide axle with steering, drive and suspension. Check it out and tell me what you think http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/233343 And please post that new 7 studs wide axle solution which you devised. I would love to see it.
Your solution is very nice, but not like the proto-type I was modeling. I also have added pictures of my new 7 stud solution (see above). I am not sure if it can be made smaller with the parts we currently have. kurt

Quoting Petar Trifunovic hi, great chassis design but with compromise - no diffs(full lock) but as far as I am concerned this is a recordbrakingly narrow chassis - only 8 studs!! WOW!! great job!
Thanks I now have a version that is only 7 studs wide!
Quoting Petar Trifunovic I like you put the instruction there but I have a problem. When I load it into my newest ldraw and mlcad it wont display half the parts. What should I do? help please
When MLCAD loads a model it will tell you if your library is missing any parts. If so, read this http://www.ldraw.org/Article101.html and add the missing parts to your library, use "Method 2: MLCad". hope this helps kurt
