Ode to 8466: Truck Trial version
Built on Sariel's Jeep Wrangler chassis for some real offroad action
About this creation
Hi everybody,

First of all: Big thanks fo Sariel & everybody who helped making the instructions for the Jeep Wrangler (which can be downloaded here) !! It made it possible to easily make my own Trial-Truck:



As I wanted a break from my main project (which is a new supercar) I decided to build the chassis of Sariel's Jeep Wrangler. It performed so well that I decided to make a complete car. The looks of the iconic 8466 was chosen (I finally found a use for those weird green panels).


After one day of building, the chassis was ready & tested, it took another day to make the global looks of the car and a couple of evenings were spent making the final details.


Constructionwise it is very different from the original 8466, it's also a bit smaller, about 80% of the original. The doors of the 8466 are one of its coolest features, so those had to be recreated. They unfortunately don't have the damped shock-absorbers for 2 reasons: there was no space & the doors might open out of themselves when doing offroad-driving.


A small truck-trial circuit was created in my own backyard to do some offroad-driving and filming, which was a lot of fun !! I'm very impressed with the performance of this chassis.


Only minor changes were made to the chassis: I made some protection for the rear knob-wheels, preventing anything (like plants or grass to come between them. I noticed that the rear shock-absorbers were a bit loose so I locked them. And the chassis was reinforced a bit.

I made a truck/jeep at a much smaller scale with articulated suspension and moving engine parts, but no R/C. Its not on mocpages yet, but i hope to have it on soon! This is a lot better than mine.

Quoting Fred Ottens Fantastic build, and do you mean you played the music yourself too ?????
Yes, I make all the music for my video's myself. I'm a musician, and LEGO is my hobby.

Aaaait! Dude that's awesome! Ik ben zelf ook bezig met het bouwen van een vierwielaangedreven truck. Ik wilde eerst de rode Sabertooth Cat pickup truck (ook gebaseerd op 8466) ombouwen tot RC wagen, maar ik was meer bezig met het ontmantelen van de truck dan dat ik onderdelen toevoegde. Ik heb besloten om opnieuw een truck of een andersoortig voertuig te bouwen voorzien van PF. Ook ik ben zwaar geïnspireerd door Sariel en ik herkende bij jouw masterpiece meteen al het onderstel, Cool! Ik heb zijn voorbeeld ook overgenomen en daarop ga ik voortborduren. Bij mij heb ik de originele wielophanging gebruikt als verlening om de wielen verder uit elkaar te laten staan. Sariel's werk was ook de uitweg om een voorwiel aandrijfsysteem te creëren dat de stuurarm meer dan 45 graden radius heeft. Nogmaals: Mooie Trial Truck man!

Quoting Sebeus I That's brilliant, how it gets over the slope, really amazing, what motor did you use ? that wasn't an XL I bet
Yes it was: one PF XL-motor for driving with 1:5 gear-reduction, one PF medium for steering and one batterybox. Those XL-motors are pretty powerful 8-)
