[MOC][WIP] Toyota AE 86 (Initial D)

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, here is my current visible progress on my next project: The AE 86 from Initial D.

I need some input from expirienced builders on the solid rear axle prototypes I did. 

This is the first one, it is heavily influenced by the LEGO 42069

And this is the second one, using the Ball joint pices from the 4x4 Crawler.

Which do you think would work better for a Racecar with very limited suspension travel? Another thing to consider is the rear seats, which are located almost directly above the rear axle.

 

And here is a Pic of the transmission I designed for this model:

A super compact 6 speed manual transmission designed to fit unter the front seats.

It will be equipped to a shifting system similar to the one I developed for my Honda NSX.

The frame is only to hold the gears in place, it has nothing to do with the final frame. This setup is a proof of concept, nothing more.

I'll try to keep you updated if I make any progress.

It will need a lockable diff and heaps of power in order to make it drift.. Unless you're Takumi.

I'll do the engine swapped version, so power won't be an issue :tongue:

It’s probably from ali express. He uses non-lego pieces (or paint) in his builds.

Yup, you are right. I got these in black to get rid of the 2 light gray clips peeking out of the sideskirts of my NSX :blush:

For the rear axle, it's a four link + control bar, like this :

Man i love pics like these.. People should take pictures of the underneith of their car so when people are repairing them, they could see what they should be doing. What parts should be where.. How much room you have to add stuff ect...

To be honest I don't know :grin: It's just a picture I found on internet...
I just posted it as I had some problem to find that when I built one AE86.
So you are probably true

This is quite a complicated setup to recreate in lego. There is no way I could get a solid axle even close to that thin. I will probably use something close to the second option I posted above. And I'll probably have to run a support bar underneath the axle to the back of the chassis to keep everything stiff, as there is not much room for alternative reinforcements anywhere else. This might not be 100% accurate, but I'd rather have a clean Interior than a 100% accurate underbelly :tongue:
