This is a Mini Trial truck
About this creation

This is another older model that I built in November 2017. It is a Trial Truck, but at a small scale. An XL motor drives all four wheels at a 1:13 1/3 gear ratio, achieved through a 1:8 worm gear reduction at the axles, and then a 3:5 reduction in the portal axles. This is a bit of a faster gear reduction than I usually like to use for a Trial truck, but this model has small wheels, meaning more torque, and is lightweight. A M-motor steered the front wheels, and the windshield folds down.

Front view

Side view. I really enjoy building Jeeps, with their simplistic yet cool body

Spare tire. This model is one of my only ones that has a spare tire just like the regular ones, as this is the only off-road tire I have more than four of.

Aerial view. The brown paper (simulating a tarp) covers the IR receiver and XL motor, and just makes the model look neater.

The view from behind the wheel.



A couple pics of the neat little (pointless) battery box switch.

Windshield up...

And down.

Front axle. The worm gear makes it sufficiently skinny.

Shocks.

Bottom. Note the skidplate.

Rear axle.

I think I actually forgot to mention that there is full pendular suspension!

Steering gears.





Three outdoor images. Yes, I have video, but no, I cannot post any. Sorry.

This model was interesting to build, and performed reasonably well for it's size. Bigger wheels certainly help, though.
