After about eight months of getting trolled by MOCpages photo uploader, I managed to update Java and get MOCpages working again... :l After my last attempt at making a R/C truck with suspension and steering, I decided that the time had come to put my skills to the test once again. I have somehow managed to make a model of a nonexistent block that can only move at 2 kilometers an hour. I had a two gear transmission in the truck before, but the gears were slipping too much. I now have a rather blocky transfer case that is just as bad as the transmission. I have snapped many poor universal joints and am now hoping to obtain some metal legos in my next truckload of spare parts. Overall, I am pleased with my R/C block, and will probably have a completely new accessory before my internet decides that it wants to work long enough to upload these pictures... Before I forget, I still haven't managed to make a steerable front axle with power to the wheels due to my Lego collection. Or should I say lack of a Lego collection?
About this creation

So here you see the power plant of the whole entire truck, as well as the most pointless gate ever in the history of mankind.


As this whole truck was built in sections, it made modifying anything much easier. So I decided to add a crane. The crane is powered by a small compressor on the back of the base. there is also a motor behind the compressor that turns the boom.


Here is the unfolded crane.


Now I present the "room where there is no room" compartment. as well as a motor for steering.


Le' derpy plow. I added many lights to this model, four in the front two in the back and two in the sides.


Le' derpy plow ready for use.


The back suspension on this truck has caused many a headache... So my current setup for the front axle is a sort of pendular suspension. The back two axles have a mix of leaf spring and pendular suspension.

Quoting Jeremy McCreary Good overall design, Max, but do you really need 2 AA battery boxes? Ditching one of them would save a =lot= of weight. Excess weight kills speed because it ends up adding unnecessary friction to nearly every bearing, though some more than others. (Don't see any here, but poorly supported axles kill speed in much the same way.)
I originally had to do some research on that topic too. Apparently, the battery boxes do not provide enough power to enable you to use anything more than one XL motor at a time. That meant that I had to have one battery box for the XL motor, and one more for everything else. It's a pain, but I need all the power I can get because my drive trains are not exactly efficient.

Super creative! I really like your designs because they appear to be well thought out. Keep it up and start working on a full-sized example soon.
