Week TechVideo, 2012 #26 - TT-S12 Crawler

LEGO Crawlers are still the topic of the day, thus I wanted to bring here another crawler made by a Technic fan.
This time the TT-S12 by Stari89 from Slovenia, presented by himself at EB, sometime ago.

It uses no differentials either at front and rear axles, and provides a long travel 4-link suspension which offers extreme agility to this model.

Model features:
  • Four wheel steering (4WS)
  • 4-link suspension
  • 2 PF M-motors for drive and steering
  • 840g total weight (why it is enough one PF M-motor for drive)

There are a few improvements still required as the CV-joints don't withstand much torque as they pop out of their sockets too often.

I really liked the model simplicity, original suspension attachment and coolness of the color schema chosen.

You may also take a look at Stari89 Brickshelf account, for extra photos from this model.
