Hey
Today i will show you my new car.

Car is very simple to build and you don't need a lot bricks (250+) and have only 410g (without batteries).
Chassis is strong and smal. Car have 1 L motor for drive and 1 servo motor for steering.


Car doesn't have really good design, because I try make "simple car" and i'm want to build only chassis.
Design is your choice. :wink:

Yeah i know that it contains only new motor and that is bad. ;)
Also I have in plan make this car with old motors (Xl, M motor). :wink:  Drive is not problem because is almost same M motor (M-L). Problem is only steering.

Yesterday I tested 2x L motors as alternative to 1 XL motor at my middle-scale awd mocs like this
http://www.eurobrick...c=72502&hl=9395
or this http://www.eurobrick...=73762&hl=8081.
I built light awd chassis and mount 2L motors. The weight was simulated by two battery boxes (of course with accus)
Weight of chassis and moc car about 900-950 g. So I can compare them.



2 L are better than 1 XL. i can say that 2 L's gives 1,5 times better performance. To say the truth, I waited for 2 times better performance:(

2L - v2
Xl - v1

There is no difference in performance of XL while using v1 or v2. V1 is enough for 1 XL. I also found that practically.

What sort of performance can you get out of it by using the wheels that came with the Crawler?
Why fix it when you can INNOVATE it?

I meant the large tires and rims that came with the 4x4 Crawler set. Considering the speed you're getting out of it already, I would imagine that the larger tires would make it go faster! I like the updated car body; the servo motor sticking out of the hood looks like an air intake!
