Released in 1994, the Lego Technic Rebel Wrecker is one of the most beautiful 90’s sets with several functions. It looks like a “big foot” 4×4, including a rear boom winch. With red colors and small yellow line all over the body, this amazing vehicle represents exactly what Lego Technic from 90’s are: colorful, powerful, and very well engineered with lots of functions.
Rear differential drives a V6 engine, front wheels steers from roof gyro (HOG), front and rear suspensions are also present. At the back, a winch with the retaining system is present. On my vehicle, I remove the additional 3rd damper on the front independent double wishbone suspension because the hardness of suspensions is enough with 1 dampers per front wheel. A Lego Technic figure has also been added.
Also, at the back of the 4×4, I replace few gears to get more efficiency: two 24T gears replaces the double 8T + 24T of the official set, the original architecture generates little frictions. Other elements are quite identical, it’s a real pleasure to play with this set, and even more it helps another Lego Technic model 🙂
