Monster Truck 42005 (2015)
My wife gave me Monster Truck (Lego Technic 42005) for Christmas. I wished it because of shock absorbers. My goal is to little by little have as wide variety of pieces of possible. To my satisfaction I am still missing tracks and bigger absorbers including steering parts for independent suspension.
The build process was quite easy and I managed it fast, even though I tried to build it as slow as possible (to prolong the joy). I omitted some parts that bounded the steering. This modification significantly reduced steering radius.
After a while the truck started to bore me. There was only one solution – to rebuild it to the remote control version. I wanted to keep steering of both axles. I started the rebuild from the rear axle. Both wheels are connected using differential that is driven by PF Large motor.
Then, it remained to build the steering. I managed to place it beneath the battery box using few gears. I enjoyed the remote version a lot. Well, see for yourself in the attached video…Click the image to show it in higher resolution
