Astra 8x8 Mini Truck Trial. Now with instructions!!

This mini truck trial was built two months ago for a local competition(finally I can not assist :( ).

The most important rule was the widht limit: only 14 studs.

The total size is 40x14x19 studs

It is a 1:22 scale of this truck

It uses 2 XL motors for drive, one for front axles and one for rear. And M motor for steering.

It has Ackerman steering between axles

Also has a completly articulated suspension, similar to the 8x8 Lizard's suspension

Finally a little video

Enjoy it!!

Also now you can download the instuctions step by step in the INSTRUCTIONS page, enter and access to the Download folder

Important note!!

You must change the yellow liftarm 1x5 thin por this part (better in black ;) ):

No 2711 : Technic, Plate 1 x 5 with Toothed Ends, 2 Studs and Center Axle Hole

Sorry but this part doesn't exist in LDD :(

I love your work. I just tried to download instructions but it seems that Megaupload has been closed down by the FBI. I can't believe this...
