Here I present my VERY first 100%-my-design TrialTruck. I was very supprised on how it worked out. It was strong, stable, very powerful, and had great suspension. This is how I thought of the design...I know it might sound cheesy, but I thought of the idea in a dream. The next morning, I built the axles, exactly like i had in the dream. They turned out perfectly the first time, beleive it or not. Then after that, I just built a similar rear axle, and made some suspension linkages. Those linkages turned into a frame, with optional propulsion by: Lego Technic Power Functions (shown) -or- RC system! I also had made the truck just in the neck of time for a medium-sized snowstorm. Perfect for testing!

BELOW ARE THE FEATURES:

1.) 100% my design (I am very proud of that)

2.) 4X4 drive

3.) Center-mounded PF Standard Battery Box

4.) Optional propulsion between PF system -OR- RC unit&motors

5.) VERY strong axles

6.) 4-link long-travel suspension

7.) Long-travel shock absorber mounts

8.) Wormscrew-driven winch powered by a PF M-Motor

9.) Pneumatic pump for Pneumatic attachments

10.) Pneumatic Snowplow attachment option, with raise/lower, and blade tilt. This attachment can be easilly put on/off.

11.) Light-Blueish-Grey colored bodywork, with Dark-Blueish-Grey accents (wheelwells, ect)
