About: Hello! I am mechatronics graduate and have always had a passion for making things. This started at an early age with LEGO and K'NEX. I think it's great to create. From useful stuff to art or toy. The ibles...

Welcome to this overview of my latest creation (20 mins ago while writing): a vehicle that has:

    So, I built the 4x4 and I noticed the steering was great, but the suspension was not much. Is this because of the steering arm? If so, you should put in a bit more time and make a slider system.

    I don't know how you can still comment under this ible, because it should be invisible for anyone except me.
    Anyways: At that time (3 years ago) I sat about a full day trying to get a nice steering mechanism. It's harder than it seems at this scale. Ok, if you scale up the model: sure, there are options, but I tried: it's hard.
    You're very welcome to try something for yourself :)

    Question: Why are this Instructable and the V6 Piston engine not on your home page?

    Actually I don't (or can't) see you comment under the ible. Why? Because it's a hidden ible. I did that so my Star Wars instructables pop out of my account. This one and the V6 aren't so well photographed, they aren't featured etc. They are below my standards :)

    Ah, so that's what that means. I only just saw these. I honestly thought these were new until I walked away and realized that the quality of the pictures was lower than as of late. So I went back and checked the date on these.

    Thanks! I have a K'NEX 4WD vehicle waiting to be photographed, filmed and Ibled. It has the same steering & suspension mechanism, and you can operate it from the interior. (no engine tho :/ )

    Thanks ^^
    I was working on it before Christmas, but the Knex is on another place, so I can't work on it before the 5th of January.

    Should I leave it buggy-like-unfinished (MadMax) or add some more platework (and weight?)

    Add more platework but put a lot of time into it and make it removable!

    Yes! that would be actually a nice idea... and there's room to fix that ^^ I'm also thinking of placing the engine more to the back. There needs to be room for the steering system.
    But thanks alot for your comment :)
