Introduction: Knex 10 Wheeled Crawler (Instructable)

Finally got around to making the Instructable to this. lol So please comment and rate it. Also if you modify it I would love to see. Note, the crawler in the pic is knexwiz's and he has givin me permission to make the instructable for that so you can also find that instructable on my page.

Step 1: Suspension

This is the suspension for the truck. It is a common suspension and you will probably see it on other vehicles on this site.

Step 2: Body/ Main Structure

This is how to build the body of the truck.

Step 3: Suspension and Body Connection

This step shows how to connect the suspension to the body.

Step 4: Cab

This shows you how to build the cab of the truck. I know it can be improved but i'm to lazy to do it so if you improve it please show me.

Step 5: Bed of the Truck

This is the bed of the truck. Once again, can be improved, but, well, you know; So if you upgrade it I would love to see it.

Step 6: Spare Tires

This is the spare tire holder.

Step 7: Finished

And you are done. Please tell me what you think and also please feel free to upgrade it, I would love to see your upgrades. Thanks

Is there any way to make the suspension stronger? I made one with my kids (5/3) - they love it! But... although they try to be gentle with it the wheels keep coming off or the suspension breaks :-(

I wish I could help you... the only thing I can say is mess with different parts and you might be able to make your own stronger suspension. But I'm glad you and your family enjoy this. :)

have you ever seen a trial truck, because i think this is scary realistic if you weren't trying to replicate one

~Aeronous~ (author)GTRPLR19952010-06-10

Is that possible to integrate one?

author
GTRPLR1995 (author)~Aeronous~2010-06-11

No because of the suspension. Although you might if you can make some universal joints, I JUST GOT AN IDEA!!!

author
Acepilot42 (author)GTRPLR19952010-09-10

author
GTRPLR1995 (author)Acepilot422010-09-12

yep, but it didnt work

author
Acepilot42 (author)GTRPLR19952010-09-13

well duh my universals barely work on my huge buggy i made if you didnt see it already

author
rlnbkseeberger (author)2010-06-15

for the motor idea, why dont you put gears on the wheels, and make the engine move the chain?

author

Yeah, That wold work but I don't have a lot of red gears.

author
