Samurai!

Lego Suzuki Samurai

As regular readers of TLCB will know, we’re not a fan of a particular American ‘SUV’. But we are fans of SUVs that do it right, and the tiny Suzuki Samurai is one such vehicle.

Powered by a dinky 1300cc engine the little Suzuki is not going to win any tug-of-war competitions. Or drag races. Or towing challenges. But what it will do is climb up a trail that a will leave a Hummer far below looking very fat and just a bit ridiculous*.

TLCB favourite piterx‘s fantastic Technic recreation of the little Japanese off-roader is packed full of Power Functions goodness to ensure it can do the same to plenty of overweight Lego Truck Trial creations. Inside are two L motors, a servo for steering, and all-wheel-drive with live axel suspension.

Best of all piterx has created his Samurai from the dark blue parts (and the off-road components) found in LEGO’s 41999 RC Crawler set, of which many examples are sitting unopened in the lofts of speculators. For that, we salute you piterx – you’re welcome here any time!

You can see all the details of piterx’s Technic Suzuki Samurai, including the all-important chassis images, via the Eurobricks forum; click the second link in this post to join the discussion.
