Bad A** Trike!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, heres something I thought up this morning, and turned out great! POWERFUL trike driven by two buggy motors, with servo steering. V2 receivers plus my two 10 volt batteries mean this thing gets CONSTANT wheel spin. Notice in the video it never gets to top speed because it wont stay in a straight line on the wooden floor and tile. Might go for a speed run outside on the asphalt. It's almost impossible to flip. Enjoy! Pics+Video: dscn1056.jpg

Cool as. Reverse trikes are fast!

Have you heard of scorpion motorsports?

Hond CBR 600 and 1000 powered reverse trikes with F1 style front suspension

looks awesome! too bad lego chains are too weak to drive anything with lots of torque and speed....

What if you double them up, one on each side?

Does that help? maybe i'll try it, I'm on winter break so plenty of building time...

Not sure, I don't seem to have too much of a problem when I turn the chain inside out, seems to make it stronger, but I only have one buggy motor

That's awesome! This trike setup (2 steered wheels in front, 1 powered behind) is great for stability.

Maybe you could use 2 wedge wheels + 3 pins in place of those crown gears to keep the wheels on better?
