  1. Did you try to add a caster angle to the front axle? I did that on my Ford Fiesta WRC, and that was very efficient (with not a huge power).
  2. I started a little the bodywork. The only thing I have to say is that it's very difficult ! The doors will be especially difficult to make. To be closest to the reality, the have to get a slight curvature from the front to the rear. But in Technic, with the existing parts, it will be difficult difficult ! But not impossible !
  3. I was jocking, you tell can everything about the french cars! So, I'll keep the gearbox as it is now. @Lipko Yes, the gearbox is not connected to the engine. To do that, I have to work on the bodywork before. Then, I'll can know how to hide the gearbox's axis by the interior.
  4. I'll see. That would be great, but it will be necessary to have the good balance and a very rigid chassis. Hey, I'm french! Don't say bad things about the french cars! I'll work on the bodywork. And I'll see for the chassis, if it's necessary to make another one or if I can change this one to make it better.
  5. Since a little moment, I wanted to make a Citroën DS for 2 reasons: This car has a very particular design and it had an innovative mecanic It has not prevously been made in Technic. So I can be the first! ^^ I wanted to reproduce all the features: Suspension Steering with the headlights moving with the wheels Height adjustment using pneumatic (Just up/down, not intermédiary) Gearbox (not defivitive yet, see below) Openable hood, trunk and doors Perhaps the body will be detachable (like the Nico71's 2CV) And a nice design! Actually, I did the chassis. It is not finished, but almost. And it was very complicated to make, this chassis! On the real car, almost all the macanic is in the front part of he car (under the hood). The problem is that it's not really possible in Lego, furthermore I wanted a chassis' height of 3 studs. So, I put the gearbox in the back of the chassis. That is working, but it's not realistic. So can you answer this question: do you like this construction, or do you perfer that I try to put a 2 speed gearbox just under the engine? Here, you can see the headlights moving with the wheels: It's simple, but we don't see that on supercars. There is not HOG yet. I don't know if it will be the steering wheel only, or if there will be one other on the dashboard. The chassis height adjustment allows almost put it down. The suspensions are soft. They give to the car a "boat" effect. And the gearbox: It is linked to the front wheels, but not actually to the engine. I wanted a DBG body, but the parts don't exist in this colour. So, it will be white. Tell me what you think about this begining!
  6. Hi! I'm glad you like my MOC! I don't plan about putting this model on Rebrickable, because I prefer making creations than the instructions!
  7. Thanks! @MajklSpajkl Here are the motors after the video : It's not very important because they are working, but it's less beautiful. ^^ You're welcome, that was nothing! I made this system for the simplicity. It's more precise than a system using gear on a rack, because this system is very direct. (With a gear, the wheels can move a little. They can almost not move at all with this system)
  8. Thanks for the comments! I know that the tyres are too big, but I don't have the #42048's tyres. Furthermore, this kart is very very close to the floor, and actually the chassis touch the floor sometimes. That would be more embarrassing with smaller tyres. And I think these tyres give a good look to the kart. ^^ @Ron1 Cool! More and more power! Here is the Rebrickable link: http://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-8322/Anto/rc-karting-buwizz/
  9. Hi! When I received my BuWizz, I wanted to make a fast RC model. It had to be very light, so a kart was good to make that. The mechanic is very simple. There are just some gears to turn the wheels at a high speed. As you can see, the driving is powered by two L motors and the steering by a servomotor. According to the tyres, this kart is very fast!
  10. Thank you Thorsen fot this nice building instructions! If you have made this car and you have a BuWizz, put it in the car: it's really powerful!
  11. I'm just a CAD assembly instruction from your
    Ford Fiesta.  I have a few questions.  
    What Flex axes did you use and can you send me the sticker design?

    Thanks Thorsten

      Yes. I have donwnlode it. I'm still busy with the Aston Martin

      Ok. You have the time, but I just wanted to be sure that you have got the modelization. ;)

      Hi! I changed 2 little things on the car. I updated the LDD file.

      https://www.dropbox.com/s/6rejpkoss0mcv5z/DS3 WRC 2.lxf?dl=0

      Tell me if you need pictures if you dont understand how some parts are fixed. :)

  12. The LDD file is finished! It's available here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/sdmhv5dwaz5knxq/Camion à nacelle.lxf?dl=0 (4 connectors are missing, not available on LDD)
  13. Thanks for the comments! There will be building instructions. I just need some time to make a LDD file... At start, a little, just if there would have been enough space. But during the construction, I saw that there is just enough space for the other functions. So, it's not possible with this scale (and the arm, quite complex). To make it RC, it's necessary to built an other version, totally different, so it's not really possible. Is is enough strong to support the extension. The extension is light, so the first part doesn't support a great constraint. The panels are fixed in the down with beams; nothing for the up, the down is sufficient (and more difficult to add reinforcments).
  14. Hi! Two years ago, I did a motorizable cherry picker for a contest on the french forum TechLUG. So, I used the comments I had, and I decided to : - Use a more little scale - Better proportions - I did a better cab. In the first MOC, it was too heavy because of the battery box inside it. - The first cherry picker was motorizable by a M motor ; this one is only motorized, more simple and efficient. To summararise : Better proportions (I hope ^^) Only motorized I use inverted gearboxes for : - Outriggers - Arm - Turn table And the manual functions : - The steering (of course) - Extension of the arm So, here's the result: The simplest function is the steering. But there is the L motor over it. So, I used three 16t gears to turn the wheels directly by their axle of rotation. And now, the gearbox. It's an inverted gearbox : the "out gears" turn in the opposite sense. So, when you invert the position of the driving ring, you invert the rotation of a function. Here are screenshots: The outriggers can up the truck: the wheels don't touch the floor. To finish, the arm. It has a triple deformable quadrilateral. I needed so much time to do it, but it's nice to see in action. And the video :
  15. I had this problem during an update. So, I stopped the brick and the app, I restarted all, and that worked perfectly.
