8880 Studless . The second of my tributes to classic Lego sets, rebuilt in studless form... . As far as I am concerned, 8880 marked the high-water mark for studded Lego Technic.

I have attempted to re-create the original as closely as possible entirely in studless building. It is of course still 4x4x4: 4-wheel drive, 4-wheel steering: I have replicated the original 4-speed gearbox, keeping the gear ratios the same. This was always one of the most awesome features of 8880. That modern sets are still using the same components for gearboxes and PTO is testiment to how forward-thinking the desing was.
