Hi !

42041 - RCThis is my remote controlled version of the 42041 Race Truck. This small set has a nice look, and as soon as I built it, the envy to make it fully RC came to my mind !

It’s rather small tho, not much space for the motors and the battery box so I had to make concessions ! The battery box has been installed into the cabin, it’s not very pretty but that’s the only free space in the truck. It should be possible to make it less visible, by removing the tipping the cabin and putting it very low on the chassis. That’s not the choice I made because then it would become complicated to extract and replace.

The steering is controlled by the usual servo motor. I choosed a large Power Function motor for the driving because I wanted speed instead of torque. I’ve kept the V8 engine that occupies lots of place, so the easier place where to install the motor was at the rear.

This is a quickly made MOD for a small set. Although, it’s very fun to play with because it’s fast and has a very nice steering efficiency. Keep it on easy surfaces, and avoid outside grounds !

You can also replace the rear wheels by bigger ones, it will make the truck even faster !
