About this creation
This is a model of a Kenworth t-800 day cab flat bed with a liftable tag axle, cab suspension, rear tandem bogie suspension, and ackermann sterring geometry.











The tag axle is regular solid axle suspension but, how it's lifted is a worm gear contactacts the gear inside the recangular piece with holes in it and the afformentioned piece also doubles as the shock mount and you turn a shaft in front of the bed to turn the worm gear which turns the other gear which moves the shock mounts and lifts the shocks up.















Hope you like it!

Quoting William Henderson Nice truck, the suspension and chassis are great. What did you use for the engine detailing? It does not look like LEGO.
I used gray weather stripping.

Really cool, thanks for the link! I like the functions and those meaty tires(even if the aren't Lego) The details in the cab are also good.

Quoting George Staples Nice T-800. The tag axle is very good. I like how it actually has suspension on it.
Yes, the tag axle works very well and so does the suspension. If you have ever studied a tag axle on a real semi truck of any type, you will find that how one works is there is basicly regular air ride solid axle suspension and an air bag that goes between a mount on the frame one each side and it pushes against an L shaped beam when inflated to lift the axle and the actual suspension air bag deflates.
