This is an easy mod made to get: any1 who owns the legendary 8466 and who'd like to enjoy driving it within 30 minutes(if all goes well...)in the drivers seat.
About this creation
1- Remove the Hand Of God shaft at the rear and replace by an M motor(i used a multi face block there,and routed the new shorter shaft trhu the connector catch hole underneith.This will keep the steering wheel operationnal and turning on command!
2- Connect the motor wire to the blue side of a lego 8884 receiver to be placed on the rear bottom notched transmission case.Connect the receiver wire to a power pack(9v) (any model) will work cause theres plenty of space for it in the trunk.
3-Disconnect the linkshaft between fake engine and transmission,and, using the appropriate shorter shaft, realigne thru transmission gears and fix the Xl motor directly on the transmission.This will allow the transmission to be fully fonctionnal for your ride.(note that i was not able to fit a clutched gear and therefore you can sometimes ear gear slippage when torque is in demand this due to loose and bitty weaky tranny.I suggest using the right gear for the ride (2nd?) and making sure the tranny casing and gears are thight and sturdy.
4- Connect the Xl motor wire to the red side of the receptor.
5- Build this very easy and fun feel RC grade controller.
So i dont break anyting when driving, i give it a little push to get it going without to much slippage,then,walking alongside i can shift gears with the lever and get the truck faster and faster...)
IF YOU SHOULD NEED ANY HELP OR ADDITIONNAL INSTRUCTIONS WITH THIS MOD, JUST ASK 4 IT!
THIS EASY RC METHOD CAN BE USED IN A WIDE VARIATY OF STATIONNARY CARS...
