About this creation












































Here is my version of the Jeep Wrangler.
I have initially built Sariels Jeep Rubicon. Whilst I like it's climbing abilities and great design I felt it suffers a bit from stability. Every time my kids got their hands on it they came back with various parts having fallen off.

Being bold enough I thought I may redesign it to gain a bit more stability and speed...
... took way more efforts to get anything even closely working and I learned a lot about how great Sariels Engineering skills are (unlike mine). So what was supposed to be a tuning session ended in a whole new care design:

Still a blend of studded frame and stud less body but has little to do with the original model I started from. In order to honour the original design I have kept the seats as from the Rubicon as well as the front lamps are still very close to original Rubicon design.

My Jeep Wrangler features:
- 2 linked M-Motors for propulsion
- 1 M-Motor for steering (under the bonnet)
- Lights; front & back (with on/off switch)
- Permanent 4 wheel drive
- Pendular axles front & back
- 2 IR receivers
- 1 AAA battery box
- 1 AA battery box
- 4 cylinder engine under the bonnet (sideways mounted on the pendular axle)

The whole car including batteries weights 2042 grams. Thatís about the limit the M-motors can move from the looks of it. Also it is not designed for truck trial as it has not enough torque to carry its weight over big obstacles.

I will add more photos once I have replaced all parts by the correct colour and will try to get an LDD or photo instructions together.
