This is my ninth and best truck so far. It uses one XL motor for drive, and one medium to steer. The truck uses two live portal axles for maximum clearance. The gear ratio from motors to wheels is 5:1, which makes this truck quite fast.

Here you can see the drivelinks of the truck. Total gear number in it is only 14:
