    Not much of a progress, printed the 3rd axle and it’s in place(need to take pics), 2nd axle is still being modeled. Didn’t have the time to sit and finish it properly.

    But I’ve made this:

    You may not remember but my steering was like this:

    It was to try to make it more scale and also hide the servo. Well, it kind of worked. Even with a 25kg servo, it seemed to lack torque and in bad spots, the servo just won’t turn the wheels. Besides, tie-rods hit each other.
    So, simple is better and now the servo is mounted on the bumper. Made 2 brass mounts and the servo is angled to clear the bottom of the cab and also the servo horn(+rod-end) clear the steering rod

    Hi people!

    Now that the 3rd axle is in place with proper links, tackled the most difficult axle, the 2nd. Figured the angle difference between the 2 shafts via basic prototypes and then did the full axle model

    This is one of halves:

    Late night work to get to this point:

    Unfortunately,couldn’t find a way to make a torquetube for the 3rd axle. A regular driveshaft will have to do…

    Thanks! It has been challenging but seeing move lifts me up

    speaking of moving:

    thanks!

     

    final stretch:

    Fitted a new and stronger 1:5 planetary gearbox because the old one was too slow(1:9)

     

    And assembled almost everything to do some real world tests

    After this, I’ll disassemble everything to paint the chassis and mount the spare, fuel tank and exhaust
