Technic 2016 Discussion and Speculation

Recommended Posts

Any idea how the wheelie function can be achieved using the M-motor? Just plug it directly to the rear wheels? I don't think the M-motor can generate enough torque.

It can ... if BBox is mounted far rear at the back of the dragter ... the center of gravity will do the rest ...

According to the description at the Toys R Us website, it does have steering..

Wheelie from the start line to the finish with the high-powered Drag Racer, featuring a vivid-blue and black colour scheme with flame stickers, working steering and a detailed V8 engine with moving pistons. The body shell of this is robust 2-in-1 LEGO Technic model can be lifted to reveal the chassis, exhaust pipes and working transmission. Upgrade with the 8293 Power Functions motor set (not supplied) for motorized driving and wheelie functionality. Rebuild into a Supercharged Dragster for a double build-and-play experience.

Can u provide the link to ToysrUs with the descriptions? I couldn't find that.

Love the tiny plane looks like a smalller one from the one a few years ago.

Dragster looks like its a Funny Car love the color.

Helicoter looks like a Mil Mi 26 mixed With a Kamov Ka 32 love it.

Nice to see a new Fire Truck.

My hopes are still on the ip car

Interesting that I started trying to build the race kart last night too.

So far I've got this:

Having not figured out the steering mechanism, the rear part of the car is hard to build too. :laugh:

how your go kart going?

I've stopped building it anymore and it's like this:

img_3610.jpg

It has no gear box. Meanwhile, Paul did some great work trying build its 2 speed box at page 37 of this thread :thumbup: :thumbup: .

As to the 1h sets, I think I'll buy:

demo jet: white little panels

drag race car: light blue panels and tumbler wheels

airport fire truck: red panels and 56 mm off road tires

May buy:

race boat: blue curved panels

helicopter: white panels, orange panels, blue panels, since I've no bought 42025 nor 42040, will choose some among the three if not all of them :classic:

Yours looks much more realistic than mine

I'm still going for the 1h ultimate ip car

I was looking at a picture of some of the new 2016 Bionicle sets and noticed what appears to be 12 tooth gear with a pin hole through it. It's on the back of the bird creature here, between the wings.

I think what we've got here is not that. It's more like 3/4 of a double bevel gear with an axle piece coming off of it. It wouldn't be entirely unlike half of this piece.

I'm seeing that now too, sorry.

Are those White #4 connectors in the new Star Wars Poe figure..? Those haven't been around for about 10 years and have gotten kind of rare and expensive.. And ironically the last sets they came in were Star Wars sets(not counting that rare First Lego League Challenge set)

I have hunch, that they use rims from 42036 motorbike 88517.jpg?1 to make wheel with arocs scoops for bucket wheel excavator.

There is possibility to use this wheel as something another than only rims for tyres see set 75040 http://lego.brickinstructions.com/75000/75040/010.jpg .

What do you think?

Extrapolating from that, it might still be too big. I'm not quite sure. I'd sure like it if they used that set as an excuse to introduce some big hubless gears that could be used to make bearings.

Something like the hailfire wheels?

I think it's gonna look like this :

Also, the "bird creature" (Ikir)'s talons are attached with this part :

I only hope that Bucket wheel excavator is compatible with mining truck from this year.This would be epic!

Also I think that BUWEEX will these functions powered by xl motor.Powered belts and bucket wheel, rotating of body, lifting of arm and motorized threada.

So there will be 5 functions:

- Conveyor belt

- Bucket wheel

- Rotating

- Lifting arm

- Caterpillar tracks

In real life, can the bucket wheel and the conveyor belt work independently or simultaneously? Also, is it more likely to have independent tracks like 8043 or linked tracks like 42042?

I think simultaneosly, it seems logic.

This could probably explain how the side panels on the Go-Kart's bucket seat would be secured at the bottom. I tried building it using the pegged equivalent, but that put some of the parts under strain.
