Land-Rover Defender 110 . My new supercar, with many advanced features . After many months of work through the last year, I present you my last supercar: a Land-Rover Deffender (110 version).
Yes, for me it is a supercar, it is not a truck trial or a normal 4x4. Yes, I know, it is very high and square, but it has many advanced features and solutions, and for me it is enought to call it supercar.
Note: The number with the name means the wheelbase in inches, 110 in this case, it is the most used. But nowadays exist 90, 110 and 130 versions.
This model is made in 1:8.4 scale, thus remains in 28 studs wide, 65 of length and 29 of high (without roof).
It have 5+R speeds secuential gearbox, with auto clutch.
The mechanism disconnect the clutch, change the speed and connect it again, pushing only once the controller.
I know this is not realistic, but I you want to control the gearbox remotely, this is the only way to do it.
The speeds ratio
R - 2.08:1
1 - 1.67:1
2 - 1.25:1
3 - 1:1
4 - 1:1.25
5 - 1:1.67
Also it has 2-speeds transfer case:
High range - 1:1
Low range - 3:1
Finally it has RWD and AWD modes
The maximal speed in high range 5th speed is around 4 kph(2.5mph)
It has front and rear live axles with long-travel suspension.
Complete interior with working steering wheel(3.6 laps, as the original Defender) and gearbox speed indicator.
It uses 3 IR recievers and 7 PF motors:
- 2XL for drive
- M for the steering
- XL for main gearbox
- M for the brakes
- M for the tranfer case
- M for connect the AWD
Of course the 4-cylinder fake engine moves with the drive motors.
The steering system is based in the real live axles system, it not uses the typical rack.
It has disc brakes in all wheels. They are very powerfull, enought to stop the transmision.
Also you can disasembly the bodywork removing only 4 pins and the steering wheel, do it is very fast.
With the bodywork removed, you can remove 5 more pins and take out the complete powertrain.
Finally as always a video showing all features:
