A Model Team Monster Truck, with working steering, drivetrain and loose suspension to bounce around like a proper Monster Truck.
About this creation

View of the back, showing the rear suspension and differential.







Shot of the bottom, showing most of the drivetrain.








A bit more of a top side view.








Top back view showing the working engine.








CAD render of the front suspension. The parallel liftarms keep the front axle straight so the steering angle is always the same whether the shocks are in or out.

Nice choice for the name, and very cool monster truck!

Very nice, well done for incorporating all the functions of steering, rear wheel drive and full suspension in such a relatively small model - my effort ended up being about three times the length of this one just to make it all fit ! Excellent eye for detail too, like lights and exhaust pipe, nice bodywork (all from studded Technic I notice including the rear bumper) and is that one of the old Shell stickers on the bonnet? Great model, far better than my truck.

Cool gears and trans-axle system. The body has some great use of the YELLOW and BLACK slope pieces. The REAR END is well done, BRAVO!!!! Is this the old MODEL-TEAM LEGO you commented about, the pieces look pretty NEW ? What year was the MODEL-TEAM big? Overall great use of pieces. I'm just building my first LARGE scale vehicle, my first major attempt with the small amount of TECHNIC LEGO. I have NO gears, but your system inspired me to purchase some. DOES your MOC steer and have a workable SHOCK system ??? I'll post mine ASAP, but I kept rebuilding and changing design, here and there. I should post a Work IN Progress. G R E A T J O B ! ! !
