Here is a recent example we have

So I take it the traditional replicas will be phased out completely for these new unique rounded versions? In a positive sense they look better without those lines through the exterior surface but overall I'm glad I don't have to use them. I prefer the original less curvy variants and those attachments on the end just make things unnecessarily complicated. I can appreciate the attempt and desire to do something different though, even if I'm not much of a fan of the results.

BuWizz motor costs 29 Euro. CADA motor - about 7 Euro.

The prices in the official CaDA store are not too bad. 14,99 USD for the micromotor gets you worldwide express shipping, no additional shipping costs if you buy more than one.

Be catious with the wire. You´ll not be able to run them on the newer devices with new hubs. On the other hand, they are not very expensive all together, it´s not Lego.

Anyone know if the V2 of the La Ferrari is available yet?

I was wondering that too since they have the anniversary discount running atm.

I also wondered about this, so I wrote. Here is the response:

Hello,

 
The Hypercar sold on our official website is the latest version. You can check out B Hobby's video. Is it the version you want.
 
Best regards,
Nancy

Looking at the video, at least the wheels are revised.  They are the same style, but are now a frosted alloy look instead of chrome.  I can't quite figure out if the gearbox changes have been incorporated- anyone else care to weigh in?

The current C61505w set available at https://decadastore.com/ has been updated for the gearbox changes. However there will be a third and final version of the set which I expect  to be release in july/august. This final version included the new set of panels @Brunojj1 showed to avoid patent infringement with TLG. There are also other parts, like 10197.png and Lego Technic, Axle and Pin Connector Perpendicular Triple , which can no longer be used and for which new solution have to be found. Finally I will try to introduce a few allround improvents for the car. I will post an update in this thread once the updated set is available for purchase

Thanks for the infos. So no plans to change the rims to the correct 5-spoke design? It's an improvement with the metallic silver so mimic alloy better than chrome color, but the 5 spoke is iconic to Ferrari and would look so much cooler. If the custom rims could be designed for the Lambo why not for this one too?

It's amazing behaviour in the same world where we can buy aftermarket replacements for nearly every part of nearly every car on the road.

The second one in particular is old news being from 2009, not to mention pretty fundamental to a whole lot of building techniques.

These? newparts.png

A loop with 1 stick glued to it is legit, OK. A loop with 2 sticks on either side is OK. A loop with 2 sticks perpendicular is NOT!! Really?? Btw. the required design change they did, results in a wobbling panel in my AMG now. Embarassing :damn:

I want to claim the patent for a round wheel with 13 spokes, guess nobody did yet (brings luck only to me).

Did you guys see those 1x7 Technic bricks with 7 pin-holes from CaDA? The new C71006w Combination Safe has like 16x in lbg. Also 1x10 Tiles in black and 6x6 tiles with shiny surface. Overall this safe has a plethora of cool gold chromed pieces. I ordered the set yesterday after JK Brickwork's live build stream. Highly recommend this set and his tellurion is even more technical.

1x10 tiles are quite common in CaDA models. The Buckingham Palace comes with lots of nearly perfect 6x6 and also 6x16 tiles in dark red. And yes, CaDA's metallic silver and chrome parts are also of highest quality. I used plenty of them for my London taxi (also some 1x10 tiles). If only all of CaDA's parts were of such high quality. Finally thanks for pointing out these 1x7 Technic bricks. I did not know they existed. They seem pretty useful for models combining Technic and system bricks.

I'm just getting back into Technic (in a big way apparently if my wallet could talk).  How is the quality of CADA vs LEGO?  Do the parts play well with LEGO Technic bricks and elements for MOC stuff?

@nicoga3000  You´re welcome! The quality is good, no problems with compatibility in general (don´t count in newer electronics e.g.). But please differ between older and newer sets. We are talking about improvements within a few years for which others would need decades. Then there are differences between quality in sets made for distribution in China mainland (AliExpress and such) and international customers (official dealers and importers). Simply buy a fresh one directly from the CaDA store and TRY :wink:!

Hello everyone! I continue my experiments with CADA micromotors, this time I tried to shrink the scale. I was limited in pieces but I think it's Ok for demonstration :)

Hope you like it :)

Looks nice.

The only issue I see (and I have the same problem) is lack of clutch. The steering system can be easily damaged.

Also changing form 16 to 8 tooth gear will make steering much "quicker" which will be worse.

Can you show how did you mount the motor for steering?

I've already disassembled this model. Probably I just limited it's motion by surrounding structures.
