    42054 - Claas Xerion 5000 Trac VC

    look at all those 3rd party types similar to these we see every time on here...TLG could have out some size on them as well...some letters or numbers...they look "flat" at the moment! But it's still good we get new tyres anyway...and as I said this is my favorite set of this year!

    42054 - Claas Xerion 5000 Trac VC

    brick link and BrickOwl are the places where to buy parts and sets. About the Class....omg the more a look at it the more I love it. I already know we will all be disappointed buy the tyres...somehow they look like the don't belong to Lego world...and rubber will be rather hard then soft....but anyway...we will make great use of them in our MOCS

    42054 - Claas Xerion 5000 Trac VC

    I think sets like this are winners because not only people buys and builds them..but like for the unimog even after 5 years people still builds attachments and similar.....to me this is the secret to a winning set! This Xerion will be fantastic itself, but with all the attachment there will be never-ending fun! The Porsche looks amazing...but will collect dust on a shelf...

    42056 - Porsche Speculation

    So are the reviews coming out on the selling day? is there any reason why TLG does it this way? Normally reviews come earlier...

    Technic 2016 Discussion and Speculation

    I still think, in my opinion, the Class tractor is the king of 2016 2H technic sets! Can't wait to buy it!

    42056 - Porsche Speculation

    what if the pins are only used while assembly the car to allign the steering wheel and then removed? surely none will design a car with +/- 0.5 stud steering...

    [MOC] Dump Truck 8x8

    Beeb busy with work but I keep working on it to make it all work smooth and nice! So as soon as it's ready will be shown! And hopefully I can add next to it a surprice as well! Anyway....are you planning to create a "hook arm container" version of your truck?? that would be epic!!

    [MOC] Dump Truck 8x8

    Yes I uderstand your choices anyway..at that scale it's a nightmare to make things work nicely due to the weight! I do have backlash on my MAN TGS but somehow I did prefer to recreate the real thing rather than making it perfect! Anyway...Lucio..one again thank you for sharing this with us and for making amazing mocs all the time!!!

    42056 - Porsche Speculation

    As a Porsche owner, Lego technic lover and sport cars enthusiast what more could I have asked for???!!!!! Wonderfull piece of art.....can;t wait really!!! The only thing is I would prefer it in black or dark grey...but will only judge it when I'll put my hands on it!!!

    [MOC] Dump Truck 8x8

    Well Lucio you know very well that it's gone absolutely well!!! Ok so I don't see the point or need to use the "ball socket and ball joint beam to recreate suspensions, I mean let's just have leafsprings instead of "locking/pivoting" the axle in one point.....also normally you want the ball socket to be in front of the axle so it can swings easily when wheels meet an obstacle..... Anyway this is a great MOC as I said and you can be super proud of it! Would be nice to see and play with this beast one day!!

    [MOC] Dump Truck 8x8

    Absolutely wonderful like any of your creation Lucio! Thanks for sharing this with us! Looks amazing under any point of view (my only critic would on the axle setub that's just "wrong" and not like the real one) but regardless you've made another stunning MOC!!!! Please this truck needs a front snow plow!!!!!

    Virtual Truck Build

    LOL that's fine then...he doesn't know how to build :grin: I'm only joking! So what truck will it be then?

    [MOC] LaFerrari hypercar 1:9

    Not much I can say as these sort of infos are part of the "professional secrecy".....even tho this car has been launched on the market! I just worked on the rear and mostly on the interiors. All design works of course...

    Virtual Truck Build

    So Ryan as I've followed this since the beginning I'm curious to see how it evolves! Not sure about the suspensions choices....front indipendent and the rear ones don't convince me either But it looks nice all together...really can't wait for the cabin! Are you making something that exists in real life? or will be a generic truck?

    [MOC] LaFerrari hypercar 1:9

    Simply impressive and stunning! i think what this MOC deserves are 2 RC motors!!! But even now it's amazing!! Great job as usual Brunojj1! Small note: I did work on this project...I mean the real one!!

    Ultra Small Forklift - Muravi

    It's been a while since I had fun watching a video and being pleased with a MOC!! Thanks for bringing us this wonderful little creature!! Loved the video so much! And yes small can be "MORE" than bigger models...

    [MOC] Dump Truck

    Hi, over all not bad but I struggle with the idea of having a gearbox. Why not simply using the 3rd motor to tip the bed? Also I think there is too much "arocs 42043" in this MOC.... The chassis looks a bit fragile and "empty" (you can clearly see it under the engine looking trough the wheelarches, and in the rear where the tipping bed meets the chassis it's just too empty) I did enjoy the video!

    Effe's MOC Corner

    Great to see Effe you're working on such a beauty!! The chassis it's simply a piece of art! You know what? you should paint the rims in white!!!

    Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Technic in 2017

    My answer is: something like 8455 back hoe or a forklift! I mean a fork lift it's fairly easy to do and could easily have 4 RC functions like 42030!

    [HELP] Building a Truck

    The anser is: try! Build it...if it doesn't work then you have a starting point for a development..... Post pics of the WIP so we can suggest better. But you need to start building in order to have answers

    [HELP] Building a Truck

    How would you balance the body without shock absorbers? you could use pneumatic cylindres maybe Bytheway they are pendular axles....

    [WIP] Iveco Stralis 4x4 Trailer truck LPE I-6

    I don't fully agree with this because thinking of a studless design then makes more sense to use axles. Yes plates works very well...but if you have a look at my MAN you'll see there is not much space for plates at that scale....and still the leafsprings work super well!

    WIP Oshkosh 10x10 PLS

    Another monster my friend!!! Looks epic! I think I would like to see this with less colors involved...I mean I do prefer cleaner models...but nontheless this is really good...and MASSIVE!!!! Please Zblj if you have a cat could you put it on the flatbed?? :laugh:

    Caterpillar 390F + Tow Haul

    ...or unless you design it properly Looks like the trailer is only one studs thick, just creating a frame of 3 studs height would make it way stronger and with a mimimun bend..

    Caterpillar 390F + Tow Haul

    Really nice. I think you should dedicate more time to a MOC, it always looks like you can't wait to show us but by doing so you miss some details. Nevertheless good stuff! How many pump cylindres have you used? The trailer has so much bending :cry_sad: These things are likely to get nowhere on LEGO IDEAS.
