Honestly it is afternoon here and spring shower is playing music on my magnolia flowers :wub:

I'll email you flower images later.

Black is beautiful but sometimes light bluish gray frames are better to differentiate some functions and in case of lower light intensity it is easier to work with light bluish gray frames...but I have 14 black :devil: and am currently optimizing (second) Fastrac chassis to save parts as much as possible (and to make lighter and more  playable MOC)

As to unknown LEGO element, those are actually quite common and are usually used for flickfire missiles, guns etc. Not sure where yours came from but I recently got one from Star Wars 20th anniversary snowspeeder and a bunch from the Marvel jet so they are very popular, I know I have several dozen.

@Johnny1360 Thank you!! you're very knowledgeable in the the Lego world!!  In Bricklink it is listed under technic as a flick missle.. I'm sure i'll find more uses with that part!!!   I just did an quick update with my Lego 8273 mod and its all about updating my favorite set using current parts..  

Here are a few updates

2 x L or XL motor for the power train 

49.5mm or 56mm tires support

AWD 6x6 with positracttion and center diff.

LA for the dump bed

Fake mini 5 piston hybrid motor

RC ready

Detail cabin and the use of panels to fill in holes.

Rear wheel independent suspension and front pendular suspension

It still based from the originall chassis!!!

Angry Lego Technic

 

Lego Technic set 8273 re-mix

 

The power of 2 x XL Lego PF motors gives the Lego set 8273 what a real 6x6 should play!!

Ha, why so angry? I think it would benefit from some lower gearing, it is quite responsive, that driver needs to wear HANS device.

@Johnny1360 My MOC is angry because Lego will end their sales of PF equipment by next year with Lego Powered Up soon to take over. 

according to Sariel  calculator my output is 

The total final gear ratio is 1:1.191
The speed is increased 1.191 times.
The torque is decreased 1.191 times.
The follower gear rotates 1.191 time per each revolution of the driver gear.

Their is over 800 pieces on my MOC with 2 x XL for the drive train.  Its on the edge on weight to power ratio for using 1 Xl motor and with the extra motor gives it is neck breaking speed.. Have you seen Nico's TTools?? its like Sarie's calculator but it does more .. check it out ..

and I also want to add that I'm a avid shopper at Lego.shop for my technic needs and recemtly it took me 15 min. just to find  the XL Lego motor by using the search options.. which I didn't have to do before.. at least the Powered Up products are listed under the Power Functions menu and that adds a bit more confusion

Well, I just got my self the Lego set 42088 for $7 USD  and how small this set was... Lol, I wonder if I can do a proper RC mod on it!!  and compared to my MOC Space Shuttle I think the shuttle can carry the crane!!   Also I started on a new MOC The Space Shuttle (tm)  !!! The is a big set and it will be PF or Power UP powered and it can be carried by the Lego set 42025 cargo plane as a mother ship!!! more to come soon !!

my technic bunnies...

 Ok, back to reality..   Recently, I've noticed a lot of mods and moc based off the Lego set 42078 Mack truck and it seams to be a popular model. I'm really suprised I havn't got the set yet..  its a bit pricey and maybe I can build this set from my spare parts...  Well, i've started and the results are very good.. I've only built the chassis and admire this set build.. It has a lot going for it but it lacks a few functions that really needed to be address..  First of all there is no suspension..  and second all the PF/RC mods seems a bit weak..  I want my Lego set 42078 to be the Road King!!  well here the start.. first the chassis

I really like the fake engine and the steering setup is cool.  The steering looks like a geared version the Lego set 42068.   

IMG_20171120_081922

the 42068 and the 42078 chassis are almost the same size and even the steering links are almost similar , I guess they are in the same scale range??  So more to come with my Lego 42078 mod...

all right, that wasn't to hard..  Modding the Lego set 42078 has started on a good start.. I've done a 2 length raise of the body and its 6x6 wheel drive with rear pendular suspension and Mcpherson style front suspension.. The shock asorber is mounted above the steering pivot point and next I need to do is the motor setup..   2 Xl or 2 L motors.. ??? ill figure it out soon.. here are a few pics ..

Good evening Lego RC fans .. at first I was haunted when I first heard that the Lego Power functions will phase out by the year 2020 and left us with Powered Up ??!!  Well I jump into the band wagon and discovered a way to increase the power and speed of the  Lego medium Powered up motor.. When I first got the batmobile app controlled Lego set , my intenetions was just for the hub and motors..   well after a few weeks with and got to study it more in detail, you can use Nizn 1.6 volts AAA batteries and your Powered Up gets powered up!!!  The Nizn batteries are a high performance batteries and of course they are rechargable and I was able to measure 10.6 volts from the Powered Up.. (that was hard) .. Well more to come with this exciting discovery!!

An update onmy Lego 42078 mod .. Had a break for a bit and did some more work on the Lego 42078 Mack truck mod and even though I don't own the set ,I'm building it as I order parts from bricklink. This mod is focus on the castor of the front wheel and I think I have a little bit of positive castor angle well anyway Its a chance to see more of the front suspension in detail..

The top red arrow is the overall frame of the vehical, the bottom red arrows is  where the actual frame is located.  The tan-yellow arrows is the castor angle to the relationship through the frame to the ground
