I have decided to scrap the tire inflation system. I have tremendous trouble to find a suitable way to keep the air inside the tires without “ballooning” The air-canal trough the hub is working well but it is also complicated to build so in the end I will only have the standard foam insert and perhaps a few rows of glass fibre tape in the inside. Hopefully the build will progress a little bit faster now with less complicated hubs.

Finally some progress!

I have decided to ditch the diffs and run a similar set up as MC-Maxim
It is too complicated and I am now very keen to get the truck rolling.

I also changed the material in the wheels from aluminium into delerin. Which is about ten times easier to machine.

Hm, it has almost been a full week now since I last saw this truck IRL.

What is happening? What is next on the "to-do-list"?

mmm... WOW...
One question though, i am a bit perplexed about the axle setup. Is it meant to be a solid axle, or does each side actually pivot independently? It looks like the pivots are independent, and i suppose that would pose to be a bit of a lubrication nightmare, but it really looks good!

Very nice truck mate,

Where did you get the drawing from for this model, i'm looking at starting to build one but abit bigger and maybe nitro powered as have all the tools and material to hand but can't find any scale drawing with decent detail to take measurements from.

Scale/size depends on tyre sizes that you can buy! what size wheels/tyres have you used on yours?

Thanks

Andrew.
