After my first atempt to 8×8 truck, I decided to create a simply and effective 4×4. I have chosen a unimog because of its look and clearing abilities. The truck is equiped with pendular axles, drive and steering.
The unimog 4×4 is in 1:10 scale with 8cm wheels. It’s based on simple pendular axles without portal axle. The axles are very strong but quite bulky. The XL motor drives all wheels with a 2-speed gearbox. A M motor placed under the fake engine operates the steering. The fake I4 engine is connected to the drivetrain with a chain. When I created this truck, I was suprise by the clearing abilities. Even if the axles are bulky, the truck are very reliable. This is why I have chosen to create the building instructions.
