Introduction: Four Wheel Drive Truck
My first Instructables upload...
Utilising the ancient live axle technology, this design is hopefully the first version of what should become a very advanced model. By the end I hope to have four wheel drive with individually sprung wheels suspension and steering.
The truck currently has massive travel on its suspension which means I can drop it from about 1 meter and have nothing break. The drive system itself it pretty clunky as there are no beveled gears in K'nex and the belt drives to each axle work but are not very efficient. As for aethstetics, it looks pretty good but it could be better. I do like the angled lip on the edge of the doors and how the cabin juts out the back but there is plenty of improvement to be made.
In short, it demonstrates the idea well but it needs a lot or refinement. If you have any suggestions don't hesitate, I am quite happy to take constructive criticism if it means the design improves. If there are any parts you want to see in detail just let me know and I will upload a picture.
