A very angry 4x4 Rock Crawler
A PF-powered Lego 4x4 rock crawler. 2 XL-motors for driving and 2 M-motors for steering. This has a Link Extension System L.E.S suspension, which gives superb articulation to axles compared to normal way of links are installed. A car Disney and Rovio should have done.
About this creation



Compared to Lego's own 9398 Crawler




Where Lego 9398 crawler has 1 L-motor on axle, this has 1 XL-motor and 1 M-motor roughly on the same space. Steering is just 2 axles and 3 gears.






This has a Link Extension System L.E.S, which gives a better articulation to axles comparing to normal way of links are installed.
Normal links attachment allows some +/- 25 degrees articulation, but L.E.S allows up to +/- 60 degrees.

That means up to 120 dgr between axles.
With L.E.S you can get better flexibility than 4-link system and you can still use
that center axle throughput for steering etc.
Makes very flexible suspension.

So, L.E.S is MORE ....



Normal links attachment allows some +/- 25 degrees articulation


L.E.S allows +/- 60+ degrees


And is simple system too








And here is L.E.S installed to 9398 Crawler




LDD-pic of 9398 with L.E.S. I modified the axles little bit so that they can be chained.
Here is a 6 x 6 version. With L-motors Not an AMG-version ;)


41999 6 x 6 mod


Safari-styled version


RC car style controller, makes driving easier


Additional controller, if needed


And Single-handed version too.
Thumb up, turn right. Thumb down, turn left.
Very useful when you want to do something else with your other hand, like eating chocolate-bunnies ;)


Steering is available for rear axle too, but it's not mechanically connected to front axle




Link Extension system in action


Cover parts








Battery-box serves as body too.
A note: 2 XL-motors are slightly too much for this battery box. Overload protector in BB hits too often, so I just bypassed it ;)



Suspension modified, once again.. Now using these damped shock absorbers 32181c02




And again... shocks lower end turned. Best so far mod. Much better on uphills.

It sure looks so much angry, especially with the 1.9 tires. Someday, I'll buy some of those tires too, they look wonderful.

Nice build, it could probably tow the Maus. Also I have some thoughts for the drivetrain on the maus.
