Total Weight 500 grams
Transmission 4x4
Motorization 1 motor(s) - PFS M

working fake motor

without steering wheel
Onboard Battery Box Classic (small) Battery Box

This is my smallest fully remote controlled trial truck!

I used an old 9V battery box along with the PF extension cable, PF receiver, M motor for driving and a micro motor for steering.


The offrader has a tiltable rear axles, which utilises a 12 and 20 tooth gearbox, which can engage at an angle, therebye eliminating the driveshaft effect on suspension.

The gearing is only at 1:2,778, which means this model is strong and fast. Also the model has a total of only 8 gears in the driveline.

  • Another very good truck!

    How did you connect the IR receiver to the old 9V battery box? I thought you need a PF Battery box for supplying the receiver, because as far as I know the extension cable uses 2 ports (when 9V system-PF are connected), while receiver uses the other 2 ports.

  • Alright...i’m VERY confuzed here:

    1.) HOW EXACTLY DO U CONNECT THE MICROMOTOR TO THE PF RECEIVER?

    2.) WHAT TYPE ( PLZ ADD BRICKLINK ADDRESS ) DID YOU GET THE BATTTERY BOX?

    3.) HOW EXACTLY DID YOU CONNECT IT?

    Since i’m new to this and i only have used Power functions, and i kinda want to branch out into RC and MICRO moters, i would like some info regarding how to connnect-cross-motor-sysytems. Thanks!
