I said I wouldn't be adding anymore MOC's... but after getting the 42005 Monster Truck set fro Christmas at my grandma's house yesterday i decided to add one more build. So after building the set I realized the chassis would be perfect for adding Power Function components to it, after getting that idea I went onto youtube to see if anyone had ever done this before...well most of the ones on YT are lacking the suspension or the steering of both axles. I wanted to keep all of the functions of the original set while trying to keep the same dimensions as the original set and improving on certain aspects of it. After spending quite a few hours attempting mount the drive motor.(it was quite difficult to do because of how the universal joints have to sit right on the pivot of the axle without making the wheelbase too wide) the end result is a front wheel drive truck that performs similar to a Trial Truck (better Torque than speed) with a good suspension and i only made the wheelbase only one stud wider that the original KIt. the only part that it suffers from is there is a chain that links the drive axle to the worm gear assembly so that will break if too much torque is applied.
