some more old ones

I was (once again) sifting through my old photos and found This:



My first truck with light-up headlights!
it's a MONSTRSITY!

the simple drifter

Here I am again with a (fairly) simple drift racer.
                                        the orange wheels are solid plastic from mars mission.
                                                  they are great for the back wheels.
                                                      it has rack and pinion steering
                                                              a bottom view....

Specs,
2 m-motors
1 IR reciever
1 lipo battery box
1 speed control remote

here is a video of me trying to drift it on a rubber floor:

The old one

Okay, I was looking in my image folders and found these pictures of my old van with sliding door.















I didn't have any need for a background back then so it doesn't look very good, but it works.

I also found this.


I had built a great truck with rear-wheel drive and front-wheel steering. my rechargeable battery box was being used for something else so I built that coloured block to replace it.

Second is the best!

Here we are again! this time, it's a non motorized model, but it features what I think is the smallest independant suspension system possible with lego. Here are some pictures.





It is slightly bigger than minifig scale and features a dragging edge suspension in the rear, but it looks great and works well. The independant suspension has little travel, but it works well.

First is the worst,





Second is the best. Or at least that's what they say... so I will start my blog off with the presentation of a truck that I have built. They also say that a picture is worth a thousand words, so here are a few.


                                                                      You may have noticed the blue door,
                                                                                                  I am finding a white one to replace it.

 I have built a tractor trailer truck in minifig scale that has variety of trailers, one of wich is an RC trailer (the stripy one). Here are some pictures of the truck with the trailers and then the trailers themselves.

 And finally, a preview for next week:
