Hello again!

I finished my models for contest. It called

Dark side of Power...

IMG_0274.JPG

Firstly, I built The Buggy!

The main problem was to create the maximum compact chassis.

In the end was implemented next funtions:

-independent front suspension with caster angle(about 12-14 digrees)

-dependent rear axle

-rear drive

-the minimum possible distance between the front wheels using these links in steering system

Buggy weight - 490g

Also interesting things here - it's arrangement of PF

Second model - trailer for this black monster :classic:

I would like to add at this model some functions too, because it will be boring to make trailer without them.

So , we have:

-hand winch(with lock)

-motorized trucks(I'm not sure that it is true name of this things - the chains hold them on photo)

Last model - pickup, which will must pull it all :distressed:

But truck can do it very well :grin:

-Servo motor for steering

-XL motor for drive

-4x4 drive

-In suspension i used dependent axles

-differentials in bouth axles

Now you can see how does it work

Demonstration video:

I used PF in all models to make them more playable. And as you can see in video i did it!

P.S. This photo made after "fire" driving:

And this photo - after washing:

Looking great for the TRIPLE challenge! That black buggy is simply awesome ;)

I second that! The buggy rocks.

Nice eny. Well done.

PS maybe it's just me, but I think your entry would even be better without the PF functions. The receivers and battery boxes make it look a bit messy/unfinished.

Like the build. Love the dirt buggy but personally i'd have a fake engine sitting over the rear wheels

Wow! It's awesome. I like it a lot)

It's cool that everything, every car and thing in this triple-set has a lot of different PF functions so they make it more playable)

They look nice, but there are two cars and a trailer. They met contest rules (The three models should serve a different purpose)?

Sure, as long as the buggy is not shown anywhere before, this is a legitimate entry.

That's great. I love that buggy and the trailer is nice. I agree that there is no need for the PF stuff and it all looks well within the part count. I'm still pondering several ideas.

Thanks for comment :classic: Video-of course. What about buggy-It is full new moc. I have done another buggy http://www.eurobrick...topic=83899&hl=?

Idea of little fast car i saw in PiterX's Sandrail MKII.

  • Model Team is allowed, but function prevails over aesthetics (quote from contest's rules) It's about PF

P.S It's very fun to play cars with my brother :thumbup:

Adding PF doesn't mean having more functionality. It means having the existing functionality powered by a motor. At least, that's the way I see it.

I think your models would score better without PF, but in the end, it's up to you :wink:

I like the design, and I agree about removing the PFs. Sometimes beauty should trump function. So when will people actually post to the voting thread?
