I told you it was 49.5/20 tires for the MAC :)

Completely in love with the concept of full manual set. and particulary with the two B models of the MAC and Rally car.

I have a feeling coming back in th 90'  don't you?

You were right, but what was confusing is that I have forgot about pseudo-fake engine in original sets like in 9393 B model (if I'm not mistaken)

Thanks for pointing me on Mack engine @JonathanM

BLACK BUSH :pir-oh:

It's a pin with bush, we can see it clearly here. Sorry. :sceptic:

Also, here are bigger pics of  the other sets : 42075, 42077, and 42078:classic:

Just what I thought. I think the red pin gave the illusion of there being nothing, especially is such low quality pictures.

If it was a black bush, why would it suddenly be black? To me it makes much more sense if it's just a pin with stop bush. 

Yeah, moreover this construction came at the back side as a black pin, not a reddish brown axle, so  it's a 3L axle with stop combined with 2L pin with a bush stop. Not a back bush :wink:

Trucks at this scale definitely looks awesome and makes 'arocs like' trucks looks a little odd'.

I dont see correctly what could be the brickbuild engine. About me, one standard engine or technic mini engine fits perfectly with the scale.

Does anyone have a visual for my comprehension?

Thanks

@steph77, here is a resized image: the engine seems to made of axles with half-bushes. However there is no visible evidences if it static or working one...

Notice the bulldog in the Mack B model. Its bottom is an inward stud hole, but it's standing on ab axle hole. That means we will get a 1/2 pin but with a 1L axle instead?

Or this 1L-axle is just a part of this Bulldog mold. A such option should be stronger against falling this statue apart.

When the high res picture of the mack was made, no one seemed to care about the gap at the upper part of the cabin and the loose sticker near the front outriggers lever.

I think the top of the cabin can open because it is connected to the back with only two pins.

The Mack engine looks pretty cool, I like the fact that it's different from pretty much any other engine from most recent twchnic sets. Variation is good.

I was wondering about this too, and actually this should be the "trick". The bulldog is meant as handle for hood opening on the real thing (as far I remember), so this is the best way to replicate this feature.

I would like to also mention, that the container load looks also well designed. :thumbup:

Why would they include 2 differentials if the axles were not connected to the motor? It would have been simpler and cheaper just to make them freewheel like on the Claas.

Very likely it is just a part of it. Like the little orange truck for the A model.

If that is the hovercraft alternate, it'd have the biggest leftover parts pile ever... :grin:

No Power Functions on any set makes me think that they are going to introduce PF2.0 in the summer or maybe this year we will get a supercar and there will be no PF models at all to make way for pf2.0 in 2019 with fanfare.

 

PF 2.0 is probably going to arrive for 2H 2018. I don't think they would wait until 2019

Is the Mac truck in a smaller scale compared to Arocs truck?

The 42077 use the same door techniques as those in 42056 & 8070, and same wheel arch techniques as those in 42039. But I see no UW on it so I'm not sure if it's a creation of Uwe Wabra.

42077 B gives the feelings of that heinous 42070 B model.
