"Model of Maz 543403 truck.
Meant to drive in very rough terrain.

Specs:

Front pendular suspension
2 NXT motors drive
4×4x4
Fully remote controlled

This truck has a brand new front and back axle design. It is steered and strong but unfortunately has no place for a differential. The truck is powered by 2 NXT motors and steered by one. As the truck is 4×4x4- All its wheels are driven and steered as well. This gives it great grip on the surface and the ability to make sharp turns.

As I finished the chassis I noticed the gap between the wheels was large and there was a chance of making a large scale model. I had put a lot of effort and time making this truck look alike a real one. At the end it got:

A full size cabin
Full cabin interior
Steering wheel
Back black “thingy” thing

Al my last remote controlled models where controlled via another NXT brick. That was borrowed from a friend of mine. Now I will buy one!! But until it will arrive I’m controlling the it from a mobile phone.(The brick works better)

So After having some serious off-road test on it, I’m pretty satisfied from its performances. I wish I could join and compete at the polish GPM…..
