1920x1282.jpg

This is a MOC. It is built in scale 1:10.

Features:

Front wheel drive (L motor)

Steering (servo motor)

4 speed sequential gearbox (M motor for changing gears)

All wheel working drum brakes (1 M motor for front and 1 for rear wheels)

Full independent suspension

Openable doors, bonet and trunk (which hides the small battery box)

Video: 

Note that the car is very small (only 35 cm long) so it was quite hard to put all these functions inside. Also recognize in the video that I had to use a special solution with mounting of the differential - because of small scale. The normal solution would be too wide.

That's a very nice Trabant, congrats! The shape is very well done, instantly recognizable :)

The chassis of this model is super complex! I am amazed at what a great job you have done! Could you provide pics (or instructions:wink:) of the chassis?Very cool!

Wow... Another great model. :thumbup: I cannot believe there is a sequential gearbox in there... How did you fit it in?! Along with the brakes?! *huh*

Sorry, I am not going to make the instructions, but here you can download at least the LDD model of the front axle (which I have made before to make my building simplier): https://bricksafe.com/pages/Mr.Smith/front-axle

Here you can download the 4 speed sequential gearbox: https://bricksafe.com/pages/Mr.Smith/4-speed-sequential-gearbox

I hope it will help you to understand how it works.

I am impressed by the amount of functions you could fit inside of it while still making it look fantastic. Normally I don't care for car mocs but I think this one stands out a fair bit from the regular race cars that I see all the time.

Nice job!

Very hard car to make with bricks, but you pulled it off! And you even included complex front axle! Well done.

Incredible re-creation! How you fit all that into that scale is beyond me. :wub:

LOL I did not know... I have probably switched the position of the whole piece with the licence. Everyone makes mistakes:D

Wow......terrific job.  Love it when others give a shot at uncommon builds. Looks and functions are spot on.  

 

Off to now check out the Pagani....:thumbup:

This is a really nice Trabant - good job!

A view years ago, I had the chance to drive a Trabant. With only 26 HP it was a fun ride. :classic:

Great build!  And great to see something other than a "super" car.

Cool. It was very popular in Poland. You can consider combi version with little more space available.
