Lada Niva

My first attempt to create a no-truck trial truck without Universal join, only gears. Features drive, steering, suspensions and fake engine. Including building instructions.


The Lada is equipped with full pendular suspensions with shock absorbers. The axles are built with gears, without U-join, because I have slitted my U-join 3L after I created a Truck with it. So I decided, to save my parts, that I build the truck trial only with gears.


A XL motor, placed on the rear drives the four wheels. The steering is directly operated in the dashboard by a M motor. The wheel steering is also driven by the M motor. The fake engine L4 is placed on the front, under the bonnet and is connected to the wheels. It has also a 2-speed gearbox. A least, the doors and the bonnet can be opened. The clearing abilities are good but the moc is quite heavy, so it has friction on the axle steering, spite of a good clearance and departure angle.

The building instructions are available. You can watch them by browsing my website or
