Welcome to this page. Here is my latest creation: an IR flatbed car transporter. It wasn't easy to build this truck and without help I would have been failed to build this. Now check the page for more pic's and more info.
About this creation
There are alot of pictures on this page, that's why I will not put text by every picture.
I want to thank all the people that helped my out (whitout them this would be impossible for me to build):
Senator. Chincilla .
You should also take a look a their creations 'cause I think they have some awesome builds. I think I mentioned everybody above; I don't think I forgot someone.
Sideview; you can see the switch for the batterypak and the IR receiver. I needed 2 batteryboxes and 2 IR receivers. I put one on each side to distribute the weigth.
Here you can see the M-motor under the cab. It steers the truck.
The back of the transporter. You can see 2 M-motors; they lift the flatbed up and down.
I don't know why but I like this photo very much.
The chassis. Here you can see the whole chassis of the truck. 2 XL-motors to drive the 2 rear axles. It is here that I was completely wrong and that the people mentioned at the beginning of the page have helped me alot. Although I had been given various ways to build this I chose the easiest one for me to build, but I tried them all. Don't forget this the 5th version of the transporter. The detail shots of the drive system are below.
The 2M-motors to tilt the flatbed.
Another top view. I didn't flip one of the differentials 'cause I did see some MOC's with
2 driven axles and their differentials are also placed in the opposite direction.
The steering. I know the 1x6 pieces are too long, so you can't steer properly, I only realized it after taking taking this pic.
Another top view but here you can see which motor is hooked to which IR receiver.
This one of the best pictures on this page if you ask me.
Finally you can see the truck in action. The flatbed being raised.
The flatbed ready to drive a car on it.
The cab of my transporter. I'm not so good at making interiors but I do my best.
Another top view, 'cause I'm feeling on top of the world. (tries to be funny)
You can flip the bed upside down and create a 5 seater.
Both doors open.
Here is the car that I've built to be transported. I did NOT create this car. Marcos Paulo created this. (you should check his page). I MODIFIED this car. I did this 'cause I wasn't very happy with the looks, I think I made it more aggresive and converted it into a race car. This car is also IR controlled. Driven by 1 XL-motor and steered by 1 M-motor.
The doors open.
The interior or just the inside (haven't decided how to call it yet).
Car and transporter ready for the next big adventure. Test drive maybe?
I hope you guys enjoyed the page and didn't got bored on the way to the bottom. I'm satisfied but there is a chance that I make this truck better (add some things) in the summer (July/August).
I also hope I didn't made too much mistakes in text, I used Google Translate and my own intuition. I am also sorry if the pictures are bad, it is because I use printscreens.

I agree - some of the pictures look good! Nice work; it was fun to see your progress! But since this was built using LDD, how are you sure that it'll run? Im just curious... -LB Jr.
Turned out great for such an ambitious build! I like the interior and all the functions (though I still doubt if they'd all work smoothly, even the best laid technic RC plans seem to fall apart when I build =P) Anyway, I also like the car. It looks very cool and tuner-rific. Keep 'em coming!

Oh Yeah I forgot XD. That is going to be brilliant I am sure. Cant wait to see it.
I hope so; the front is the hardest part for me to build. I will get as close to the real thing as I can. It will take few months to build 'cause I will be having alot of school work (the holiday is over :( ).
Thanks for the comments.
@ MortalSwordsman, I don't have enough nor the right bricks to build in real, but I would love it. A car for the classic race teams group: i'm busy with the Scuderia Maserati parts truck; that will keep me busy for a while.
Excellent :D. I love it all especially the cab. Great work on the power functions. This is an accomplished moc and probably your best so far. I like the car too. Do you build in real brick? And are you considering building a car for the classic race team group?
Agree with Nick (below); this looks great!! The screenshots are well taken and your translation is excellent too (well done for taking the time to do that). The cab is my favourite bit, although all of this is very well designed. I'd like to see it for real!
This is superb. A beautiful truck, that should work very well when built. One thing - I would try to move the steering swivels closer to the wheels, it would work better and need less wheelarch clearance.
