This the Halo Warthog that everyone's been telling me to build. It has suspension but has to have the solid axles front and rear because the real quad axles were to flimisy, the suspension kinda sucks but it works. It has a functional gun in the rear, and looks very similar to the actual thing. I will be devloping a winch and tow hooks for it in the week to come. I'll try to make some seats but i'm not that good at making seats. The gun doesn't show up in any of the pictures but I do have the assembley of the gun in the inst. and how to install it. If u need a more detailed pic of something I'll send it to u when i get a chance.

Step 1: Center Body

The center section of the body. WARNING: DON"T CONNECT ANYTHING TILL ACTUALL CONSTRUTION, your not smart enough to rear my mind!

1- Build two of these side panels
2- The center of the center
3- another view of 3
4- the center consel
looks awesome!wish i had enough pieces
its got a lot of pieces. lol =)
i built it and my mate was impressed by it. thanks for the instructions =)
i cant see any pics. why?<br /> <br />
THE BEST TRUCK EVER,i made the suspensoin permanatly stay in place because i didnt have the right kind of pieces for either suspension.so i got done and it still had THE BEST SUSPENSION EVER (without rubber bands).
what if you dont have either for the suspension,can i use dark grey pieces
rear your mind..? typo btw
sweeet, and it actually fires stuff, definately a 5
this.. is.. AWESOME!!!!!
well done this post is realy popular, and also well done on the look of the car it looks just like the one in halo 3.
too bad i cant make the independant suspension like the one in the Halo series
Nice!!!!! It looks quite realistic. were does every1 get those wheels from anyway?<br/><br/>Check out my build:<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-Monster-Truck-Thing/">My Truck</a><br/>
Thx, I got the wheels from a the Overdrive Monster Truck kit about 2-3 years ago. The truck is really sweet, you should post instructions
do you know any place i could get them from? (apart from ebay, I already tried and no 1 ships 2 the uk...)
im' not real sure were you could get the kit in the UK
try ebay.co.uk
Oh ok. Thanks anyway :(
you can try to build a small set of wheels with knex or try to find similar wheels like the ones on your truck
ok thanx. if i build il use the 1s of my truck
what if you do not have suspension pieces, what can you put in place of them?
on step ten there is an alt. suspension but it is either up or down you cant have the suspension half way (its a lot firmmer)
i made a new varient of the warthog - its got the gun turret and the troup varient -looks a little more sleaker than this - probs is its a bit bulky
do u hav pics (if u do post post 3 at a time, so i doesn't go into the side)
dude you should try and make it so where all the weals turn separate.
I wish i could but the axles would be to weak, and i've tried
Have you tried using a gear to help them turn?
thats not quite the problem, its the suspension part of it the rods that would go out to the axle would twist under weight and cause the warthog body to lower to the floor
make swivel points.
dude where do you get the wheels?
yuse the treker ones if you have them
what do they look like?
this is what it looks like
well thats not quite the kit i was thinking of but im sure it would work
i know, these are the trekkers its what i used, i don't have the monster truck ones.
cool thanks
i got them from the Knex Overdrive Monster Truck kit, along with the shocks
could you post a link or something?
I dont think knex makes that kit anymore, you might have to get it through Ebay or something, i can't find a good pic and my camera hasn't been working real well
sweet I wish i had k'nex shocks then i would make it
check back in a week or so, i'm working on a proto type suspension that doesn't hav shocks, it uses ball joints and rubberbands
sweet thanks
i finsihes the proto, im going to post it in the next 2 days as a mod
oh thank you so much I appreciate that cant wait
k, the alt. suspension has been added, check step 10
sweet thanks!
are those lego shocks or knex?
those are Knex shocks, you get them in the Monster Truck kit or Desert Strike kit
cool thanks
