Unstoppable

Lego Technic Truck Trial 8x8

Lego Technic is getting seriously hardcore. When throughly engineered, a remote control Technic truck with all-wheel-drive can make its way through almost anything, no matter how many TLCB Elves are clogging up its tyres. With most of our workforce squashed beneath it, or clinging to the front bumper screaming, this monstrous 8×8 behemoth finally came to a stop against the foot of our unimpressed intern as the Elf that found it abandoned the controls and escaped cackling into the dark of the archive hall. It won’t get its meal token payment in there, but it didn’t seem too bothered – violence is often prioritised over hunger.

Anyway, the creation, which is something rather special. Built by Alexey Tikhvinsky aka SilenWin it’s based on a previously featured model by Lucio Switch and has then been extensively modified. With all eight wheels powered by four LEGO Buggy Motors, twin Servo Motors steering the front two axles and two third-party SBricks allowing control by mobile device, Alexey’s build can go anywhere. How anywhere?… Just watch the video below;
