4 XL Motors for drive
1 Servo motor for steering
1 M Motor for pneumatic pump and fake v8 engine (when the truck is stationary)
2 IR receiver
2 Battery pack
2 PF lights
The vehicle is controlled via IR to move forward / backward and steering.
The pneumatic pump and the front and rear lights are activated by a manual switch.
Always manually, acting on three pneumatic valves can tilt the cab, lock the trailer and provide air to the trailer.
The cabin is provided with doors that open, and the steering wheel rotates together with the wheels, the seats are borrowed from 2 Unimog.
The truck is full suspensioned, independent front axle and live rear axle.
Thank you all for the comments, unfortunately I have only one poor quality video (iPhone 3gs in the evening, too dark and noisy) Is possible to see only the cab tilting, the trailer lock, lights and suspensions...and honestly (shame on me) I do not know how to load it on the page.

Very cool work! I love all the functions you've put in and it looks very smooth and realistic. 5 smilies! BTW, I thought that the Stralis only came with a 6-in-line engine? Great job nonetheless!
;-) Yes, you're absolutely right, the 6-in-line was a little bit too long (but I think that is not impossible to put inside that kind of engine) and I prefer the 8V engine, thank you for the comment!!

Excellent work.....do you have some detailed photo's of the drive / steering setup?
Unfortunately I have already disassembled the truck in order to another project.
But I added a picture of the work in progress.It is the only one where you see something. I hope it could be useful to you.
