Here I present my VERY first 100%-my-design TrialTruck. I was very supprised on how it worked out. It was strong, stable, very powerful, and had great suspension. This is how I thought of the design...I know it might sound cheesy, but I thought of the idea in a dream. The next morning, I built the axles, exactly like i had in the dream. They turned out perfectly the first time, beleive it or not. Then after that, I just built a similar rear axle, and made some suspension linkages. Those linkages turned into a frame, with optional propulsion by: Lego Technic Power Functions (shown) -or- RC system! I also had made the truck just in the neck of time for a medium-sized snowstorm. Perfect for testing!

1.) 100% my design (I am very proud of that)
2.) 4X4 drive
3.) Center-mounded PF Standard Battery Box
4.) Optional propulsion between PF system -OR- RC unit&motors
