This is a well-performing Technic off-roader!
About this creation
This truck is easily my best off-road model yet in terms of performance. It has full floating axle suspension using ball joints and large shocks, front wheel steering using a PF L-motor under the hood, and 4WD using an XL motor in each axle. These motors were geared down 3:1 before the portal axles, which had another 3:1 reduction, for 9:1 total reduction. There were LED headlights, and the entire body could easily be taken off to drive with the chassis only.

Underside. Notice the low placement of the battery box. Now, if only the rechargeable battery box was heavy, there might be a great center of gravity!

I was pleased with this model's performance, which was naturally much better without the bodywork on. Now, I know that a video is very important for a Trial Truck, and I have one, but I have had no success in posting one. If someone could comment and tell me how to post videos with the simple uploader, I could add video of most of my vehicles I think!

I will see if I can do that to post the video. I am not sure if I am able to use Youtube or not.

Very nice. The chassis seems well designed and light. Can't wait for the video! 5/5

Upload your video to Youtube. Then in the video page click in share. It will give you a link like this https://youtu.be/BsipYKaXM3w . The code of the video you need is, in this case, BsipYKaXM3w . Then you copy the code to this bunch of HTML, like this (be sure that it appears 2 times in this code): <object width="500" height="281"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/BsipYKaXM3w?version=3&hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/BsipYKaXM3w?version=3&hl=en_US";;; type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="500" height="281" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>
