Redneck Muddin' Truck!
About this creation
The idea for this MOC came immediately when the Claas set was released. The tires were perfect.

Now, I should clarify, I truly do not mean the title of “Redneck Truck” disparagingly. Also, although I am in Texas, despite my truest desires, I cannot in good conscience consider myself one with this crowd. I have never attended one of the mud-fests you see below. That is not said in defense, rather, out of jealously. The idea for this truck and the ensuing video came from watching youtube videos such as the one below and I could not help but notice how fun I thought they looked.



Details of this build:
- Weight: 1492 grams - Length: 43 studs - Width: 15 studs - Final drivetrain gear ratio: 7:1 (1.667:1 x 1.4:1 x 3:1) - Opening Hood - Opening Doors - Opening Tailgate - Working (fake) V10 engine - Full Suspension

Really not much more to say. Truck is driven by two XL Motors, direct-coupled together. Powered by BuWizz . In fact, this project was the inspiration of this little test . Steering is by one M motor. Steering motor and overall motor placement/configuration are a little weird in that they are mounted very high. That was intentional. The purpose of the truck was to run in mud and water and since PF motors and electronics are not water proof they needed to be mounted high. The bodywork is a little bulky, but again, this was on purpose. I have noticed in my hours of wasting time (watching muddin’ videos) that these trucks are often older Chevy or Ford models that in real life have blockier, less-rounded bodies. So I tried to emulate that. Also, naturally, in a real-road worthy truck you would not have an engine halfway out, exposing cylinders, piston-heads, etc. Yet, Redneck Mudders aren’t really supposed to be logical or reflections of realism, so again that was all done on purpose. The engine was inspired by this built by This Guy . Fun build....hope you enjoy the pics and video!
