Truck T10 "Super Turbo Race Truck" with instructions
Model "Truck T10" is build with LEGOŽ in scale 1:17,5 and is motorized using RC Racer Buggy components. It is not build after a specific brand or type of truck. This build represents an imaginary race truck which is strongly inspired by Mike Ryan's "Banks Freightliner Super Turbo Pikes Peak Truck". Another custom design that comes with building instructions and inventory/parts list! Features: independent front suspension, drag axle rear suspension, propulsion by two RC Racer Buggy motors, remotely controlled driving and steering, openable doors, openable hood, modeled engine and cabin interior.
About this creation





Somewhat different!



This model is meant to be an appetizer for those who already own one of these original LEGOŽ sets: 8366, 8367 or 8475. For those who want to build something different with the parts of these sets both instructions and inventory/parts list are available.
Since the original LEGOŽ sets are extremely rare those who do not own one of these sets already are most likely unable to build this model. Unfortunately TLC (The LEGOŽ Company) does not longer produce sets with these, in my humble opinion, very nice RC Race Buggy Battery / Receiver Units and additional parts. But whenever you can lay your hands on one (maybe even second hand), please do so, it is nice to have one.







RC Race Buggy parts



For this model/project both the RC Race Buggy Battery / Receiver Unit and a truck design are combined, the specific parts used are:
RC Race Buggy Battery / Receiver Unit
RC Controller Race Buggy
2x Motor RC Race Buggy
The RC Race Buggy steering components are not used, for this race truck a more sophisticated front suspension has been developed. It uses four soft spring shock absorbers.




Rear chassis component



As TLC initially designed them to be both LEGOŽ RC Race Buggy motors are also used as the main parts for the rear chassis. Basically the rear chassis consists out of two RC Race Buggy motors, a frame that holds them together. This frame also holds a wheely bar and the spoiler with its support structure. This entire module pivots around two joints with which it is connected to the RC Race Buggy Battery / Receiver Unit. Next two shock absorbers are used to make it sprung. This rather simple suspension system is referred to as a drag axle.




Front suspension



The front axle suspension is a mixture of the suspension parts used in sets 8466 en 8297 with a total of four soft shock absorbers. Since most weight is sitting on both front wheels the front end suspension needs to be stiff. Stiff enough to bare the weight of the bodywork, but still effective going over obstacles. To achieve this it uses a double acting system. Going over a bump with a single wheel, left or right, activates only one shock absorber at a time. A total of four shock absorbers is activated simultaneously taking a bump with both front wheels at the same time. So the suspension is soft when it doesn't harm, but stiff if needed.




Mike Ryan's Banks Freightliner Super Turbo Pikes Peak Truck



Searching the web for race trucking one names pops up quite easily: Mike Ryan. He is besides a well know Hollywood stunts man one of U.S. most recognized semi truck racing drivers. One of his recent projects is this souped-up Freightliner Cascade: Banks Freightliner Super Turbo Pikes Peak Truck.
Starting with 2640 pounds or 1200 kg it tells a little about why the total weight of this racing truck is just over 5 tons. Also does it explain why the engine is sitting in the trucks centre and no longer under the hood. With this centre engine setup the improved centre of gravity increases the truck's stability drastically.




Detroit Diesel Series DD60



This model's detailed engine is based on Ryan's Super-Turbo engine setup which is built around a 14.0L Detroit Diesel Series DD60 six cylinder inline semi truck engine. Introduced in 2001 this 14 liter (854 cu in) engine has a larger stroke crankshaft with a power output up to 575 hp and a maximum torque of 1,850 pound force-feet (2,510 Nˇm). Obviously these numbers where not enough to label it as a race truck since this engine is sitting in many many semi trucks. So it had to be souped up and that is where Banks Power came in.




Super turbo setup



The twin screw supercharger is powered by a driveshaft which is installed on the engine's driver. This feeds the impressive twin-scroll or divided turbocharger which might also be found on a drag-racing engine. For optimal performance this turbine housing is water-cooled and oil-lubricated. With this super turbo setup an intake pressure up to 60 psi is realized evenly across the entire rpm range, so the truck can nicely be pulled out of any corner. Because this system is able to give an intake pressure up to 180 psi, two blow-off valves eject any undesired air pressure.




Racing fan must have!



This truck's cabin interior might been that of a trophy truck as well, more than a standard day cab, All switches and readouts across the entire dash, racing seats, and a high-mounted racing speed-shifter for the transmission. Together with the openable doors, openable hood and this modeled and detailed massive engine this model is a must have for any racing fan!





Quick pitstops



Since there is quite a change you run into a wall someday with this fast beauty it is build to be easily repaired. The hood and bumper can be separated from the chassis effortlessly. Removing the cabin is also quickly done. So whenever you are in a race your back on track in the blink of an eye. You might even want to consider having both the hood/bumper part and the cabin on spare. This really speeds things up during a major pitstop.




Building instructions



To give you an idea of how the instructions for this model will look like here is a preview. Creating these instructions both quick progress on your build and being easy to understand were the main goals. Early in the building process you will see what it is that you are building. You will be very excited from the moment you start the build of this model till the very end when you finish it with a total number of parts of about 1050 pieces.
To achieve this a lot of floating parts are used, with added arrows to show where these items are suppose to be. Together with a lot of so called call outs (the smaller windows within a step that shows the assembling of a smaller sub part of the build) together with multi part steps (not only one part per step) the build will be in a flow.
So for you to build it go check the building instructions and inventory/parts list!

@2ror ornot2ror: that is a very nice and clear explanation, thanks!!! That is exactly what happens, it really is very effective!!!
Quoting Thomas Graafland Must say that I prefer your other trucks, but still very cool. Great work!
I understand what you are saying here! This is some sort of out of the box, but I really had much fun building this truck. It is still a truck, but with much more speed. Searching the Internet for race trucks I found some very nice information and so that is why this is one is born. Never the less do I work on "normal" trucks as we speak... :-)
Quoting Nick Barrett That looks like the most fun on wheels! It's really quick as well :-)
Yes it is!!! Thank... :-)

This is a cool truck! It's one of a kind, and it's a truly fast lego RC vehicle and it seems to handle excellently. The double acting suspension system is pretty cool, too. The 2 shocks on top act as an anti roll system. That's why the front suspension is firm yet soft, like you explained. How anti roll systems work is when a vehicle corners sharply at high speed, say left, the left side of the vehicle will pretty much bottom out the left front suspension without an anti roll device, but, with one, the left front wheel will want to move the right front wheel up so the vehicle stays level when cornering sharply at high speed. That's how your double acting suspension works.

Quoting 2LegoOrNot2Lego Ingmar Spijkhoven Okay, now I see, let me explain. I use BrickSmith to create the actual model, it uses LDraw files as does MLCad for example. To create the instructions them selves I use LPub. Since this last one is no longer supported or developed :-( I hope I can last quite a while with it!!!
I started using Bricksmith one week ago ... and now I'm installing Lpub .. thanks !!

Thanks to all for the kind words!!! It is always appreciated when a model is no only loved by its builder... Well at least that is what my MOCs tell me all the time... :-p
Quoting Lucio Switch Probably yes! I am referring to what is seen in the minute 2:05 on your video! What software is?

Quoting Lucio Switch Awesome!! Very fast !! A couple of questions ... the wheels are connected directly to the RC motor? ..from a Mac user to another Mac user ... do you use a software for Mac or do you use Parallel Desktop?
Yes, the wheels are directly attached to the RC motors, just "max" speed! What software are you referring to? You mean those use to create those building instructions? For you information, I do not use any parallel desktop or what ever... :-)

You are right about that! Solved it by adding the link to YouTube, so now you can see how it acts/drives... Thanks for the kind words!!!
