Old, staying for reference [Tatra 813 6×6 + Instructions]

A trial truck modeled after Tatra 813. It is very capable and masters all terrains!

The truck is controlled and powered by power functions elements. It consists 2 XL motors for propulsion and 1 M motor for steering. All 6 wheels of the truck are driven but only the front 2 axles are steered. So what do we get:

  • A Tatra truck
  • Front 2 axles steering by 1 M motor
  • All wheel drive by 2 XL motors
  • Independent suspension
  • Headlights
  • Custom license plate
  • Functional steering wheel

When I started building it, I thought, do I really want to build ANOTHER Tatra? Well, yeah! Tatras are great. So as I built it, it got better and better until it achieved my goal- being a good looking and capable truck. I like it. The truck has some wide range of suspension travel. It uses an independent suspension on all the wheels. Actually it’s half swinging axles, the typical Tatra suspension.

I have also made instructions for it! you can find them at the Instructions page ^above^.

*The instructions are not perfect!! You should connect a switch between  one of the motors to the battery box to revers its direction. And complete the cab as you wish 🙂

The video: I tried making it similar to an official Tatra video, enjoy!
