Hello!

I’m from Russia and I’m glad to introduce you the second version of my lego trial truck.

The first experience in lego trial was a year ago, when I’ve constructed this one: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/164258

It had the suspension constructed with the parts of Off Roader (8466 set) with universal joints. It was amasing watching universal joints crashing when a dinamic loading had place:) Here is the video how the joint had crashed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxtHtZ6lS_I

After that I decided to use no universal joints in suspension and constructed a prototype chassis with warm gears and differetial gear. It was powerful enough to tow my son on his baby’s car http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZMwCtG7x2U

But the chassis was too wide and I had no good idea how to plug shock absorber
there. So I decided to try another type of chassis - something like monster truck: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/189773

It was fast enough: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iK6FFAwk-Pc
but in trial it was week. After all I’ve found an excellent idea on brickshelf gallery to use linear actuator mount hinged in suspension. With warm gear it became possible to construct powerful and compact chassis: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSjdW9q-NNU

And here is my second trial truck:
