Building tips

As AFOLs build trucks, techniques get developped and shown to the community. Copyrights don’t exist for "inventing" a building technique, because anyone could have "discovered" it, but there exist some kind of Credits :

If you reproduce an assembly that was first used by a known AFOL, it is nice to give credits to his buildings and cite him.

This section is divided into 2 sections : Parts and Techniques.

The Parts articles describe parts you could use for your trucks. Especially, it contains a description of the wheels and motors available for your trucks. These articles could contain tips and recommendations about the use or not of a part in a Trial Truck.

The Techniques articles tend to present usefull parts arrangements. For example, the use of a portal axle setup, or turntables as a pivot point for your axle.
