While most of my Truck Trial vehicles take lots of planning and sourcing of parts, sometimes it is nice to develop a truck that is simple and uses parts I already have. It is from this vein that I developed this Oshkosh FMTV. After seeing a number of ideas for a small truck, I used a number of ideas to design my own.

The truck is powered my two PF M motors. One for the steering, and the second for the drive. The drive motor is run through a worm gear for all six wheels. The design is simple, and effective. Sharp turning gets a little difficult, but for the most part the truck runs well, and was a great way to spend an evening designing and driving the truck.

Sorry, I did not create a video for this truck. Hope you enjoy.
