Our stringer for all things R/C, Francesco Fondi, sent us word of this amazing Lego/ NXT-based Bluetooth and phone-controlled Volvo 8×8 truck:

This is a really impressive creation from ATRX, the same AFOL (Adult Fan of Lego) behind the NXT Boat.

This Volvo FL12, version 8×8 features all wheel drive, 4-wheel steering, full double wishbone independent suspension, remote-controlled 4-speed gearbox. It has been designed for Lego Truck Trial races GPM (Grand Prix Mazovia) 2010 that will be held in Warsaw, Poland.

[Thanks, Frankie!]
