Some Kind of Monster
This is my first real attempt at stepping out of the Supercar realm...
About this creation
I based the body style off of a 57 Chevy style classic car with a body that is a module in itself that can be easily taken off and switched with another body.. The future goal is to design more bodies that can work with the same Monster chassis... The V8 engine is also modular and can be taken out by removing 4 axles...



The steering was a bit tricky to get to work along with the drive train and I had almost given up on it, but thanks to the frictionless CV Joints(which allow an axle to glide into and out of them), everything started to fall into place...

Working with the new hubs again... They have a bit of play as usual, but the tires do not rub anything even when steered at tight angles and the suspension is prssed down in that direction...




This model could easily be modified to be motorized and driven...






I knew that I would eventually find a good use for those micro panels... :)

Nice looking vehicle with lot of useful ideas! I especially like engine mount - nice alternative for original part (32333) which is slightly higher. I've used it on my hot rod, instead of original part, and it allowed me to lower complete engine for one stud.

This is most impressive. Monster trucks have been beaten to death, but this puts a whole new perspective on things.

This turned out really great! I like the bodystyle very much, which is quite a challenge on such a small scale. Nice work, Paul! :-)

Lots of functions with relatively few pieces, less is definitely more with this build. Really like the ability to swap between HOG and power functions. Nice to see you here on Mocpages.

I like the idea you swap the steering axle position with driving position comparing to the 9398's design, so you only need 1 motor to drive this model and the servo for the steering. Great job!

Quoting Henry Quarmby Good one... Nice bodywork as always but with flex axles that are not so hard to find :P
I tried to stick with mostly current parts.. There are a couple black bushings mixed in there though... :)

Nice build! How about add-on mods like changing colour wheels, etc. sound like a RC hobby set.
