Failure! Snif, snif...
A failed trial truck. I will rebuild it. One day...
About this creation

One has to be stupid to only test at 90% of a moc... The gearbox doesn't do what it's ment for. I'll show you the pics anyway, don't hesitate to comment and advise, I'll have to rebuild anyway.

I placed the moc in that position, cause it doesn't drive well. Suspension : OK.


With the body removed, you can see that I have (more or less) place for an interior, even the deck has all the place it needs.


Front axle with flexible (= leaf-spring) suspension. works out really well.


Clean bottom of the vehicle. I managed to build in the motors pretty low, but the XL's are to close to the front wheels, another thing to solve.


The gearwheels in the center of the picture are for two features in the interior, (and has something to do with the flexible mounted on the gear-changer). I won't explain more, you have to see when the model is finished (if it ever gets finished).


The RC receivers are only in that place for testing purposes.


Failure! Although the axles are at maximum two studs away from the beams, this is enough to the gearwheels to crack. (UPDATE : I can solve this if I make two 13-studs axles. Do I dare?)


Failure!

You did a pretty nice job on capturing the styling of the early 2000's or late '90's Ram.

Quoting Charlie A Looks like a Dodge Ram from mid 2000's. Cant wait to see finished product!
It was intended as a late nineties Dodge Ram :-) It will neve be finished, I needed lots of it's parts for techrod 2. Plans for a new try on a trial truck are being made, though.

Hi Joost, Very impressive design! And loaded with very cool technology. The cracking gears sounds very familiar to me. It's always a matter of creating higher stiffness. Would be a waste not to reconstruct it. Or did you already tear it down?

Quoting marcel urbanija I know you wont accept advice but here is some: Keep the bodywork (just add some plates to it so it wont be so Skeleton-ish),redesign the whole chasis if you want. there. im giving you a 5/5. BTW. it strongly resembles a Dodge SRT 10 truck. Was that intended :)?
Hi, I do accept advice, thank you for taking the time! Bodywork : you are absolutely right , but I don't have any in yellow+ I'm not good in technical plate-work. The chassis will be redesigned, lighter, and with less functionality so much stronger. gear ratio's have to be adapted also. When I will do this is not certain, as I have a few other projects for now. I had a Dodge RAM crewcab 3500 V10 in mind when building this car, a SRT-10 has the same looking front, but is smaller if I'm right.

Great news on 8070. It's a really nice set and has some very clever functions. It has some flaws but overall a very good looking car. I can't wait too see what you think of it. Like the unimog it comes with some new cv and universal joints. I don't like mixing my technic sets so I will need to buy some spares on bricklink for my next technic moc - a supercar with suspension and gears. Santa brought me the camper :). Had a little wine too XD. Talk soon buddy.

Thanks for your kind comment Joost. This is no failure in my eyes, i love the bodywork and the way it lifts clean off to get to the lovely technicky bits :) I should really get my big boys lego out and try and remember how to build with it :)

Good! I like the detachable car-body and the suspension looks very nice. I'm curious to see the final model. Nowadays I like techcic more and more. I haven't got too many technic sets, but I also want to buy the Unimog. It's a good basic set to build 4x4, etc.

Yeah I would love the unimog but at £150 it is way to expensive. I have got 8060, 8880, 8448, 8466, 8070 and all the 1:8 F1 cars. I also have a few of the big bikes. Sad I know - But technic is my first love :). I actually prefer the older models but 8070 is beautiful. I really like the new technic beams, they are not as strong as old style studded ones but you can do a lot more with them. And working with odd numbers is a new challenge for us all. Which are your favourite sets? I won't last too long in the MO so I might start my 4x4 sooner rather than later.

Quoting MortalSwordsman . ... You are right ;) and i also need to make a few ammendments before I add it to the group. Thanks for your support Joost - it means a lot to me especially coming from a great builder like yourself. Following my comments below... I have built 8466 and it is pretty good but i think it needs some serious modifications - steering is poor and so is the suspension. I am planning a 4x4 technic moc soon but it will take a long time to build. Thanks again. Joe
I don't have 8466 myself, but I known that every big wheel gives problems in building appropriate suspension. I still considering 8110 to buy, but ot inexpensive you know. But you won't have time to build your 4 by 4 soon, considering you will survive at least two rounds in M.O.

All the same, excellent technical realization. Cheer and good courage.

Quoting MortalSwordsman . Well it does not look like a failure. I love how the body shell can be removed from the chassis. Are those leaf springs? Shame the gearbox is not working properly. Good luck with the rebuild. I am building 8466 tonight - happy days. Nice garden :).
Indeed the supsension are leaf springs . Those work really well, and stifness and hight are pretty easy to adjust.

Quoting Ape Fight Looks good enough to get an 'I like it' from me. Nice Technic functions, and ok looking too - although bodywork has moved on a bit since beams and empty space. If you have worm drives in the gearbox (looks like you do) they will lose a lot of power - try without them in the next version. 4/5
Thanks for the comments Ape. For the gearbox, please see the reply I made on Nick's comment. For the bodywork : You're absolutely right (but I don't have a solution in yellow, or I've to breakdown my 8043 don't think my 4404 can solve much)). Anyway, that remark left me sleepless, you know? :-)

Quoting Nick Barrett Lots of lovely functions, a detachable bodyshell, good looks - not a failure; just fix the gearbox, as Ape said, probably without worm gears. I like this!
Thanks Nick, The wormgears in the gearbox are used as racks (is this the right word for this), in order to move the gear-shifter-thing. Two main problems with the gearbox : in the middle gear, the gears "crack". This is a real problem, I don't see a solution to this. Second problem is that the ratio's are still too high (so that is not such a problem.)
