My fifth trial truck. Uses an interesting combo of my gear transfer box and 5x7 lift arm frames for axles.
This allowed for stronger axles with better, more efficient bevel gears.
The chassis was a compromise of strength and weight. The battery box also fits nicely in the front of the chassis. A "m" was used for steering and a "xl" for drive. Final gear ratio is 1:5
In initial testing, my last u-joint shattered, so I had to use the old-style ones. Bodywork was the next issue, but I used a modular design that fit on nicely.
As light and powerful as possible, I think this was a success. Could overcome obstacles that my previous tt’s couldn’t.
Here’s the LDD. Thanks to 88high for suggestions as well as ldd for rear axle.
And, of course, the movie :
