  1. Thanks for the instructions! I haven't dived into trial trucks much, so building a copy was a great learning exercise - the leaf springs in particular work incredibly well! [img]https://c1.staticflickr.com/9/8103/28982015724_76bdef5737_c.jpg[/img]
  2. That's excellent! It seems incredibly capable; great work on keeping it simple and light.
  3. [quote name='J_C' timestamp='1471245502' post='2635803'] [i]I really admire when people design something small, or simple, or with limited bricks.[/i] [i]I think it is way harder and valuable than taking e.g.10000 brick for heaps of money and build something super-realistic and sizewise massive.[/i] [i]Of course these "large scale" MOCs are usually impressive, but small, compact, limited, smart is ([u]to me)[/u] way more impressive. [/i] [/quote] Thanks! Squeezing the most of out the bricks is super fun. Of course, size constraints also help when it comes to performance.
  4. Thanks for all your comments!

  6. Excellent work! The axle-propellor connection is neat.
  7. We had to build our own return-to-center mechanisms in the old days: [url="http://www.technicbricks.com/2009/09/tbs-techtips-26-return-to-center.html"]http://www.technicbr...-to-center.html[/url]
  8. I like the compact build. Correct me if I'm wrong, but is it any different to this? [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a89MtigEgqg[/media]
  9. [quote name='wumsi' timestamp='1457860151' post='2498897'] Maybe they are red, because the have a different fitting. And if not, that would be something anyone here could easily change [/quote] Modify a children's construction toy? Are you sure you can do that?
  10. What everyone else said; physical separation and time constraints. The need to consider multiple functional connection points probably also makes collaborating together on a single Technic/similar build particularly complex. That said, mahjqa and I worked together on this - it only took two days (spaced almost a year apart!): [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=46Tddix1o38[/media]
  11. [quote name='Mark Bellis' timestamp='1457479982' post='2495089'] I've had a go at a pneumatic octopus arm and also a cuttlefish with its propulsive fronds. Mark [/quote] Sounds cool! Do you have pictures?
  12. Nice tinkering! [quote name='DrJB' timestamp='1457106036' post='2491033'] I'm not sure what optimization really means (in this context). [/quote] Like the video shows - optimising the mechanics and software for more efficient operation?
  13. [quote name='Richard Dower' timestamp='1447676487' post='2385205'] yeah...but...but...purple?....wth am i supposed to do with that? [/quote] [img]https://41.media.tumblr.com/b49080b57d9dbed799bb07454a04047f/tumblr_nxwwfwvh5j1rqi1oqo1_400.jpg[/img]
