Red Beast
Dakar Rally 4x4 Car with pneumatic suspension.
About this creation



















































This is only my second fully self MOC, so I treated it for training purposes. The assumption is, to put all the mechanisms as tight as possible and connect pneumatic with electrical systems.

Another task that I set for myself is a removable body. Body is connected to the chassis on seven accessible pins, also have to disconnect the power to the lighting and pneumatic for lifting door.

For some time, i was thinking to create a progressive suspension of lego. Which has two operating ranges. Is sensitive and precise on a level surface. But it works fine even on rough terrain. The combination of spring and pneumatics gave such an effect and it works very good.

Most difficulties caused me to prevail over the steering and drive moving at such a high pitch, and quite a bit of weight of the vehicle. I am aware that it is far from perfect, but it works.

Quoting Nerds forprez Agreed. This MOC is excellent! But, bigger photos would be nice, and perhaps using the proper code so that youtube videos can be seen (embed them). Search the "help" section for the correct code. Well done!
Thanks for positive feedback. I correct the code in the movie links. What do you mean bigger photos ? Bigger miniatures on the page or shall i upload bigger then 800x600?

The model is excellent, but you should put there the photos in bigger size.
