  1. Thanks! As I stated above, I hope to make one as soon as possible, weather and life permitting.
  2. Good performance from this buggy. I second Didumos69, a black rollcage might look better, as it would provide some contrast. And I especially like the slow-motion crash!
  3. This was just a quick weekend project. I am fond of the 42037 set, as it was one the sets that got me interested in Technic. So, I decided to try to do it some justice, and I motorized it, first with an L-motor, which wasn't great, then with an XL-motor, which was about the same, then with 2 L-motors, which was the best. Then, I got a buggy motor. And since I had just taken apart a failed battlebot, and the buggy motor was lying there, begging to be used, I decided to use it. I rebuilt my 42037 Formula Off-Roader, with a few changes, which are as follows: 1. Changed the colors from light bley/med blue/lime/black to black/white/lime. 2. Removed the inline-4 fake engine. 3. Added full motorization, buggy motor for drive, servo for steering, AA battery box with a V2 receiver. 4. Bodywork changed a bit to fit the new colors and cover the gap left from removing the fake engine. And a light bar was added, because I didn't like the round spotlights. 5. Very minor, but I changed the rear shocks attachment point on the rear suspension arms, they were moved out one more stud than shown in the instructions, in order to have better travel and not be under compression, which was an issue in the original model. Anyway, I know you're all tired of my rambling, so, with out further ado, I present to you the 42037 Ultimate Racing Buggy! 42037 F 42037 FQR It has easy access to the battery box, both to replace it and to turn it on and off. 42037 FQL The suspension is great, one of the best parts of the original set, which I kept and slightly improved. 42037 Mod 42037 FQR-s The source of power and speed! The almighty BUGGY MOTOR! 42037 Rear The required photo of the underside. The wheelbase and chassis are the same dimensions as the original set, though the buggy motor hangs out the back by a couple studs. 42037 Chassis I hope to make a video soon, but it started raining after I took photos, so maybe in a few days. But finals are coming up, so it may take some time. I will also add some cutaway photos soon, for anyone who wants to replicate my mod. Thanks for looking at this, please give C&C, ask questions.

  4. Nice design with good performance. IMHO, you should change the front by removing the panels, it would look better, and it would be more accurate.
  5. Nice improvements, but I think the spoiler should remain red, with just the seats being yellow. Or you could add a yellow stripe up the middle.
  6. 23: 10 3: 6 10: 4 4: 3 20: 2 29: 1 This was a great contest, many awesome entries, and I wish had been able to finish my bot in order to compete*, but good luck to all! *Final exams + illness + sports = no build time.
  7. Excellent buggy, it looks good, but IMHO, try to limit yourself to 2 colors in addition to black and white, just so it looks a bit more coordinated. Can you add an underside and straight rear photo so we can advise on the suspension?
  8. Very nice. The rabbit looks great, how he is integrated into the machine is cool. Great work!
  9. Incredible! It is so detailed and accurate! Using the set is a great idea, expanding it to include the whole palace is just amazing...
  10. Most excellent build! The details are great, and your support is much appreciated.
  11. Just saw this topic, what a beautiful crane! The cabin looks amazing, and the crane arm appears to be very sturdy.
  12. A good start. How much travel does the front suspension have? Because at such a shallow angel, the travel is reduced by quite a bit. However, I do like that you added positive caster. Is it very sturdy like that, or does it wobble, because I have had that issue with a few of my buggies before.
  13. This is an cool idea. Destroying floors = good power. You could also ram another bot with those hammers, and that you have two makes it twice as good.
  14. Excellent build! Very realistic and accurate.
  15. As stated, yes, I believe it does come with four tires. Good deal!
