In this short review, I would like to tell you about my 4x4 trial Jeep. Features in short: 4WD, IR RC PF, pendular suspension, lightweight frame and PF lights.
About this creation
I always like to build an offroad vehicle, but in this case I've liked it much more! The looks are well, even though it is an offroad vehicle with a high ground clearance. It is of course IR controlled with the Power Functions system. The video at the bottom adds more to the experience.
When it was nice, please leave a comment.
The frame is very fixed: I used 86 5x 3 L-shape liftarms. This makes it possible to keep weigh of the frame low. Also the bodywork has been limited to a minimum. Prove: count up the yellow parts in this model. The balance is very good: in front of the model is an Xl motor positioned, low in the middle of the model the batterybox. It takes every steep hill!
It's rather high, when you see it from this side. I made this photo to show the pendular suspension. In the video you can see why I added pendular suspension: the obstacles would be too high.
All the motors are below, that means that in the cabin there is a lot of open space. This space is thus used for two large seats. I put the IR Reciever at the back for a better weight balance, also to have a good connection with the controller. You can see that the back bodywork is lightweight: some open space between them.
