Thanks for sharing the PDF Building Instructions!  They are very well done.  :thumbup:  Have you tried your MOC out in the snow?  



Besides being used as a "Snow Cat", your MOC could possibly be used in "Techball".   :classic:   From this TechnicBRICKS article, Fernando Correia wrote that "TechBall is a competition where a kind of football for vehicles, takes place. The objective of the game is that each player tries to capture the ball and introduces it into the opponent's goal.  Its popularity has been increasing among several LUGs and it is specially interesting for organizing at the LEGO club events, for amusement of everybody."

I haven't tried it on snow and I even didn't plan it. I try to keep my lego away from water... Anyway I think it is possible to use it in snow you just have to connect pins in tracks to avoid their skidding.

I'd like to talk about alternate built out of set 9391. Set 9391 is the smallest set in my collection and I have to say 'it is rather difficult to build anything out it'. After few hours my effort was rewarded by this little snow mobile that features just ski steering (even track is fixed).

I was working on my first remote control car during summer. I've decided to build it out of set 8041 with addition of PF parts. I have to acknowledge that it was rather difficult for me and I'm not totally sutisfied with result. So any improving ideas are welcomed.

The new model is another hot rod that features:
  • one M-motor is used for driving with gear ratio about 1:1
  • another M/motor is used for steering with return to center mechanism inspired by sheepo
  • front V6 fake engine with moving pistons - it was one of main goals
  • model is built out of set 8041 with addition of 2 M-motors, battery box, IR reciever and transmitter and little rubber belt out of set 5763

You can remove battery box easily by removing door and unplugging cable.



And these are two chassis prototypes that I built during development:

First has fake engine in rear part of car...

...and another has it in front of car.

Nice work!  This makes me want to tear down my hot rod and rebuild it as a smaller and drivable RC car.

Yes, I plant to make them now. I was curious if people like this car as it is before beginning with instructions.
