    Super clean build, it captures all of the shapes and details of the real vehicle very well. Also interesting usage of the subtractor, it would be rather easy to change both of the inputs to one side, rather than the 90° drive you showed.
  2. Maybe look into fpv gear. I don't have any experience with it, thought it is definitely small enough.

    They may have just ripped the leaked images, and used them, it seems too early to have already copied it, unless they have a mole in TLG.

    There has to be a seperate reverse gear selector, as there is another driving ring, and looking at the BOM there's a regular changeover catch. Looking at this photo if you zoom in on the center console, you can see some red parts, that would suggest the changeover catch, and more 16z clutch gears, and you can see one of the white 3L connectors. considering how low that sits in the chassis, it would make sense that that would function to either reverse the direction of the transmission, like in the Porsche. Also maybe the gray connector with axle in front behind the black tiles could be a selector for the transmission, as there appears to be some space behind it, and that could easily function as a indexer for an sequential transmission. Another thought, after looking at the chassis some more, it would make the most sense that the W16 was driven off of the 20z clutch, as looking at the 2 blue connectors on the sides near the shock mounts, this would function well for affixing the motor seen in this still from the early teaser, also we may now know the location of the clutch gear is in the transmission ( it could also be an early prototype of the new 20z clutch), though this may have changed greatly since the teaser. Though after looking over the U style structure of routing power through the transmission this would make sense, as there is a lot of gears that are being driven. Also another interesting feature to note is the axle that is visible above the differential. It appears the shock mounts, and frontal geometry appear to be the same as in the set too.

    well there are 4 12z's accounted for in the transmission, 8 in total for the set, there could be more used in the rear spoiler mechanism, same with the 24z gears, one is in the transmission, that leaves 5 more for other functions. With the 16z there are 10 in the transmission, an additional 2 are visible in the instructions for the steering mechanism, 4 remain unaccounted for. Given some of this gearing will be used to transfer power to the engine, though other possible functions would include the reverse gear as mentioned above, or to actuate the spoiler.

    ...Buys entire set to just part out transmission, and engineers an entirely new 8 speed for it with other more obtainable parts... or better yet, just build the model without the transmission and keep the special parts for yourself... As for most people this set will just sit in some display cabinet, and for the others that try to motorize it will probably be disappointed in performance of the transmission.

    it would behave similarly to a differential, though it may be unlikely, as it would be for 90° only in most cases. a 12z may be possible, looking at some of Efferman's stuff on Shapeways, he did a 10z, so 12z could be possible, though it may be too weak.
  8. Tommy Styrvoky

    42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    yeah at least a 24z, maybe a 12z is possible, and maybe a 28z gear.

    TLG could make life so much easier just by making more variations of regular gears with clutch gears, it would simplify it a lot. Though the extra added costs to make molds, maybe some day we will see a full lineup of clutch gears. Hopefully at least one per supercar set, as that would be justifiable.

    Hopefully the clutch gear is just for the engine, though it could just be a failsafe for preventing someone from damaging parts in the drivetrain. if something jams.

    so 2 in the transmission, and one for the bracing of the front and rear differentials, the new driving ring extension looks interesting too.
  12. Tommy Styrvoky

    42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    Interesting, there are 5 technic driving rings, maybe more to the transmission, reverse gear maybe?

    Found a better shot of the new parts. Couldn't find a part count for the clutch gears, though only 2 of the new rotary style change over catches and 20z clutches... I want those so badly, though they are going to cost a fortune unless Lego releases them in other sets. LEGO Technic 42083 Bugatti Chiron by Ryan Smith, on Flickr

    Yup, there's also one behind the rear differential, and maybe a 3rd one located below in the transmission, that isn't visible.

    I am almost tempted to get this set, just for those gears and the selector switches, though I guess I can just wait and see on bricklink, my guess is those parts will be $5-10 each.
