This is my latest trial vehicule : a lada niva 4x4 based on 81mm wheel diameter. The lada hasn’t U-join on drivetrain, only classic gear and bevel gear.

The suspensions are pendular with shock absorbers and turntable to reduce stress on drive axle.

A M operates the steering with U-join and a XL (placed ont the rear of vehicule) operates the drive. It is also equiped with a 2-speed gearbox and a fake i4 engine. The wheel steering turns with the wheel.

The clearing abilities are good but the friction on steering point causes some lost power. (in HD)

To finish, I took picture during the disassembly :
