Kamaz 49252

My first trial truck built specifically for Polish Truck Trial races. Features 4×4 drive and steering, full independent suspension and V8 piston engine.


Completion date: first half of 2007
Power: electric (wire-controlled)
Dimensions: length 66 studs / width 24 studs / height 30 studs
Weight: 1.68 kg
Suspension: full independent with shock absorbers
Motors: 1 x RC, 2 x 71427

My first complete Truck Trial vehicle, preceded by numerous and various prototypes. After trying out a great number of solutions, the final truck was fitted with full independent suspension using the 8880 set parts. The differentials have been removed from both axles to save space. The truck complied with the rules of the Polish races, which are quite restrictive; for instance, any vehicle must be an accurate model of an existing truck, with all wheels suspended and driven, and it must not exceed the width of 25 studs.

The model has been ugly and had somewhat flattened silhouette. Its performance was satisfactory, mainly thanks to the greatly simplified drivetrain. It did not suffer any significant malfunctions, except for one case when an universal joint in the front axle has been broken. It seemed able to compete with other trucks built at that time, but on several occasions while its performance was sufficient, my driving skills were not.
