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
- 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!
