As written at my website http://yoraish.wordpress.com/ :

A model of a 6×6 Tatra transportation truck. powered using the Power Functions Elements. Featuring full 6×6 drive and full independent suspension.I first got the idea of making ANOTHER Tatra when I was in a vacation to Costa Rica. There, in one of the hotels, a truck like this one was driving jungle tours for guests(I’ll attach a picture when I’ll find my camera ).

The actual chassis of the truck are the same as the 8x8x8 Tatra truck but with one axle off. And now for some details:

- 6×6 drive

- Front axle steering

- 1:9 gear ratio

- Illuminated V8 fake engine

The whole 6 wheels of the truck are powered by 2 XL motors, As the front axles’ steering is powered by 1 M motor. In my opinion the overall look of this truck is better than the other truck ancestors. This happens because I first tried to built-to-scale this truck. As you can see in the video below, I have putted 2 wheels inside the truck’s front part. I did it in order to make the weight distribution better. And for the curious, the truck is powered overall by 2 battery boxes and controlled by 1 remote through 2 receivers.
