    8081 - Extreme Cruiser - MODs and Improvements

    Thank you! I know, that the color does not go well with the background, but because my car is still in WIP phase, these photos are still more a teaser than real presentation. sorry for inconvenience. The original car also had oversized wheels IMO, so my interpretation of it has to have them too. Rear fenders are not shown yet on any photo. :) The headlight are made from ExoForce optical fiber. Trans clear 4L lightsabre blades are too expensive on BL right now. The transparent connector piece should be original, it only appeared in one set (according to BL https://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemIn.asp?P=32016&in=S) I'll make more photos as I think that the car is finished, and I hope it will be soon. @sirslayer Wow, that fenders look really good on your car! Good job!

    8081 - Extreme Cruiser - MODs and Improvements

    I am working on it too. Just hope that 8081 successor built completely from scratch fit the rules of this contest. My MOC should carry on original model's spirit and basic functions. I also decided to stick with almost original drivetrain, so my car is RWD, with V6 in the front. I had to give up the black colour, because with it the car looked plain and too monochrome, and also because I wanted to play with "windows area" divided from the rest of the car by it's colour. Clean conceptcar look is nice bonus. Rear light are inspired by the original car, but also by some real vehicles. sketches of supposed original model and my version with early WIP shots (were shared in another topic yet: Almost current version Rear end and frontend on current state of this MOC. Hope you like it. :)

  5. This is the reason why I decided for two-door version. Four door with my front section solution does not ressemble the original well. The hood is too long, and the current cab is too small, relative to the hood. I'll try to rebuild it. I also tried to sketch the original 8081 as real car, trying to find basic and most characteristic styling elements.
  6. @Thirdwigg Thank you, I am glad that you like it. Wheelbase of my version is currently variable parameter with values between 28 and 35 studs, as the cab (more precisely, first sketch of it) looks too small relative to the engine bay. Maybe I should build the original 8081 first, to get size comparison... And I think I'll build the 2door version, in order not to have all entries with 4d-s. :)
  7. First sketches of my version. Because the original model was unacceptable in these days due to critical safety issues (holes in the floor) and had some several problems with front axle servicing and replacement, our engineering department with design studio decieded to completly regdesign the whole car into new generation, not just facelift it. We know, it might be too radical, and expwnsive for the final manufacturer, but we see it as necessity for further competitiveness. Design studio analyzed the original car, and found key elements that should be kept, or only slughtly modified. Engineering department got only one task and bunch of boundary conditions (e.g., the V6, front independent suspension and live axle in the rear. We still can not decide, whether we should make four- or just twodoor body for it. What do our potential customers want? The front section is just a sketch, it might not be the final version. Hope it does not exceed borders of rules of this contest. Hope you like it.
  8. Thank you. I am glad you like it. For the RC version I tried to get rid of all of blue pins on the body, in the chassis it was not a good idea due to high stress in some parts of it.
  9. Hi again, I made also a manual version of this car. Instructions and more pictures. https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-29001/Horcikdesigns/jeep-wrangler-manual-version/#bi I would love to see this MOC (Rc or manual) in blue or dark azure. :D It features HOG steering, bunch of necessary accessories, V6 under the hood, and two live axles with differentials, opening doors that reveal detailed interior and huge luggage compartment and fake winch. it is modular like original Jeep, so you can easily take down the roof and doors.
  10. Does entry need to be physically built from bricks, or are digital entries also allowed?
  11. In case that is there still a place, count me in the competition.

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    I secretly hope that 42110 will introduce ball joint version of Technic, Axle and Pin Connector Perpendicular Split... It would be nice to mount new HUBs with them to old axles.

    42099 CV joints damage after use

    How does the planetary reduction "hole" look like after damaging the joint? Is there visible also that wear, or is the material used there harder?
  14. Hi, sorry for bumping old topic, but I made instructions in form of .lxf file for this model and uploaded it to Rebrickable. It is not free, but the file is divided into modules that will help with assembly. It use two L motors for steering and winch and another two for propulsion. the gear ratio is 1:0,12 (or 3/25), so it is really heavy duty offroader. https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-28281/Horcikdesigns/offroader-for-overland-adventure/#bi Photo of real thing that was used for Kostky Trophy expedition race. (This version used 2-speed transmission, but this setup was too unreliable for paid instructions, thus was replaced with direct drive with "crawler gear ratio" ) The file is divided into simple groups. For the custom rollcage you'll need to cut some pneu-tubes and rigid hoses with metal wire inside them to help them to keep required shape. The model looks best on old 81mm tires or on some 3rd party tires.
